ON TRIAL

Bradley Manning’s Defense Rests

Defense lawyers for Bradley Manning, the military-intelligence analyst who stands accused of leaking 700,000 documents, have rested their case. Manning is charged with more than 20 crimes, including aiding and abetting the enemy, and could spend the rest of his life in prison if found guilty. Manning has admitted to giving the documents to WikiLeaks, which then disseminated them further, but says he did so to expose wrongdoing. Prosecutors, who plan to call rebuttal witnesses on Monday when the trial resumes, have argued that Manning knew al Qaeda would see the documents online.
