12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Bradley Manning From Free Speech Radio News: "Today the military judge in the court martial of Army Private Bradley Manning denied a request from his defense to dismiss some of the most serious charges, including the “aiding the enemy” charge that could carry a sentence of life in prison. Manning faces 22 charges in connection with leaking military documents to the anti-secrecy group, Wikileaks. Manning has said that he leaked the documents in order to “spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign policy in general.” The severity of the charge of aiding the enemy could have implications for future government whistleblowers or those seeking to bring information to the public. For more, we’re joined by Kevin Gosztola. He’s covering the Manning trial for Firedoglake.com and has been joining us on FSRN for weekly updates and analysis."
