    Prosecutors trying to prove that Bradley Manning is guilty of providing WikiLeaks with U.S. military secrets, knowing they would be made available to Osama bin Laden and other members of al Qaeda, officially rested their case Tuesday. Manning, who has admitted to sending hundreds of thousands of war logs from Iraq and Afghanistan to WikiLeaks, is accused of 21 charges that could add up to a life sentence if found guilty. The trial will resume Monday, with his defense team ready to make its case that Manning was young, well-intentioned, and motivated by a desire to “do something to make a difference in this world.”
