Private first class Bradley Manning’s sentencing sessions continued on Wednesday in Fort Meade, Maryland. The soldier is convicted of one of the largest information leaks in US history and he finally spoke in his trial regarding his involvement in releasing sensitive information to the website WikiLeaks.

Bradley Manning personally delivered a statement as his trial, which could see him convicted for up to 90 years in prison, nears its end. He defended leaking 700,000 US diplomatic cables as an act of conscience and apologized for the damage he caused.

RT’s Andrew Blake has more on his statements.

  3. It isn’t Manning that needs apologizing; it is the US government that should be doing it – and not just to Manning, but to the entire world.
