Elizabeth Goitein, co-director of the Brennan Center for Justice’s Liberty and National Security Program, has made numerous press appearance in the last 24 hours, commenting on the verdict in the case against Pfc. Bradley Manning. On Tuesday, Manning was convicted on several violations of the Espionage Act, and now faces decades in prison as he awaits sentencing. Manning was found not guilty of aiding the enemy, the most severe of the 21 charges against him. Manning, a U.S. Army intelligence analyst, was arrested in 2010 after having leaked classified documents to the website WikiLeaks.
