I am not a fan of our involvement in the Middle East.  But what this dude did is treasonous and dangerous.  When you are a government employee you ,must follow the rules that your boss (i.e. Uncle Sam) has laid out and if you break one you belong in a federal pen.  It's illegal to leak out federal documents and when you're a soldier, you cannot let your personal bias or politics get in your way.  Bradley Manning should be punished by a military tribunal for his crime and sentenced to a long stay in Leavenworth,  Politics aside, you are a soldier and you must obey the law and if you break it, you deserved to be punished accordingly.

As a retired army officer I whole heartedly agree! Our uniformed personell cannot take it upon themselves to release secret documents to the press, no matter how much they disagree with a particular military course of action.

Agree, when you take the oath to defend your country you can't do anything that jeopardizes it. He should be punished accordingly.

Bradley Manning (born 1987) is a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, PFC (formerly SPC) accused of leaking classified documents to the media.

Manning was arrested by the United States Army Criminal Investigation Command in May 2010 and detained without charge for over a month in a military jail at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait. In early July, two misconduct charges were brought against him for "transferring classified data onto his personal computer and adding unauthorized software to a classified computer system" and "communicating, transmitting and delivering national defense information to an unauthorized source". The maximum jail sentence is 52 years. Lieutenant Colonel Eric Bloom has said that "as part of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the next step in proceedings would be an Article 32 Hearing, which is similar to a grand jury. An investigating officer will be appointed, and that officer looks into all facts of the matter, does an investigation, and upon conclusion, the findings will be presented to a convening court martial authority. The division commander will consider based on what is in that, what the next steps are. Either there is enough evidence or not enough evidence to proceed to a court-martial ... A date has not yet been set. We haven't even identified the investigating officer. We're still in the early stages of this case".

Manning allegedly told journalist and former hacker Adrian Lamo via instant messaging that he had ...
