25-year-old Bradley Manning from crescent, OK was dishonorably discharged and sentenced to 35 years in jail after he was found guilty of multiple charges, including violations of the Espionage Act for copying and disseminating the documents while serving as an intelligence analyst at a forward operating base in Iraq.
Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was charged of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified documents to the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks among these documents were the Iran and Iraq war Logs, and the famous video named “Collateral Murder”
It is well-know that Bradley Manning was openly gay, his latest boyfriend Tyler Watkins was the same person who told Wired’s Kevin Poulsen that Manning had told him he was considering leaking sensitive material he found.
