Bradley Manning takes 'full responsibility' in WikiLeaks case

Out U.S. Army PFC Bradley Manning took "full responsibility" Feb. 28 for providing the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks with various classified and sensitive military, diplomatic and intelligence cables, videos and documents, according to Wired.com.

In a statement to a military tribunal, Manning, 25, said WikiLeaks did not encourage him to provide the organization with any information. However, he also laid out his online interactions with his WikiLeaks handler, and whom the government maintains was Julian Assange.

Manning pled guilty to 10 of 22 charges the Army has against him, including improperly storing classified information; having unauthorized possession of such information; willfully communicating it to an unauthorized person; and other "lesser-included" offenses. Each of the 10 offenses to which Manning pled guilty carries a sentence of up to two years' imprisonment, for a total of 20 years in prison.

Manning pled not guilty to 12 more charges, including the most serious: aiding the enemy, which carries a sentence of life in prison.

On Feb. 23, cities around the world marked Manning spending 1,000 days behind bars. Chicago held its event at Pritzker Park in the South Loop.
