Bradley Manning’s arraignment scheduled

From a U.S. Army Military District of Washington press release. Bradley Manning’s arraignment will on Feb 23. in Maryland

Pfc. Manning is charged with aiding the enemy; wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on the internet knowing that it is accessible to the enemy; theft of public property or records; transmitting defense information; fraud and related activity in connection with computers; and for violating Army Regulations 25-2 “Information Assurance” and 380-5 “Department of the Army Information Security Program.”

Interestingly, I didn’t sign up for the press release so I guess the US Military must be a Polizeros reader!

Manning is probably screwed, especially since he reused an important password and they were thus able to decrypt crucial files on his Macbook. His only defense is that he did it for a greater good, which probably won’t work in military court.
