      Bradley Manning Admits Sending War Documents to WikiLeaks

      Army Pfc. Bradley Manning steps out of a security vehicle as he is escorted into a courthouse in Fort Meade, MD, Thursday, November 29, 2012, for a pretrial hearing. (Photo: Patrick Semansky)A Navy doctor, Captain William Hocter, who examined Army Pfc. Bradley Manning for months during his solitary confinement in Quantico, Virginia, requested the “senseless” conditions of his isolation be lifted, but was refused by Marine prison authorities in 2010. Prior to being sent to Quantico, Manning was held at Army Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.

      Hocter’s testimony was revealed on Wednesday, during a three-day Fort Meade, Maryland, hearing where Manning asked the military court to accept a guilty plea for sending WikiLeaks classified documents, which turned the private against the war. Whether Manning’s admissions constitute evidence of an illegal “conspiracy” with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange – still inside the Ecuadoran embassy in London – was not immediately clear.

      Among 14 additional accounts, Manning is charged with “aiding the enemy,” a charge for which, if found guilty, he could face life in prison. Manning is denying these charges and his claims were taken under submission by the court.
