The Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks was to be arraigned Thursday at Fort Meade, Md.
Pfc. Bradley E. Manning faces 22 charges, including violations of the Espionage Act and aiding the enemy.
If convicted in a court-martial, he could face life imprisonment. Aiding the enemy carries a maximum sentence of death, but prosecutors have said they will not seek capital punishment.
In my humble opinion the government is giving a free hand to anyone who spies on the United States. What is worse, they are allowing active duty personal to get away with potential murder, and in some case actual murder. All spies should be put in front of a firing squad. Look at damage John Anthony Walker did to our national security. These people are traitors and should be dealt with as such.
And what happened to Major Nidal Malik Hasan, the radical muslim extremist terrorist who murdered our troops in Fort Hood? How long will nobama and holder protect them? This administration is a disgrace. We need a death penalty!
