How to Become a Bounty Hunter

U.S. soldier Bradley Manning, who is accused of the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history, could be sentenced to life in prison today, Reuters reports.

A judge is expect to render a verdict in the case against Army Private First Class Manning, 25, who’s charged with aiding the enemy by releasing 700,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Judge Colonel Denise Lind ruled that Manning was appropriately trained to understand that releasing the sensitive information put the U.S. at risk.

Others say the case is overblown.

“He’s just a dumb kid who got himself into a situation where he felt he was saving the world,” said Joseph Wippl, a professor of international relations at Boston University and a former CIA officer. “I think he should be convicted and they should be easy on him. They need to do more on limiting access to classified information.”
