Bradley Manning Pleads Guilty in WikiLeaks Case

Here's the report at Guardian UK, "Manning plea statement: Americans had a right to know 'true cost of war'":
After admitting guilt in 10 of 22 charges, soldier reveals how he came to share classified documents with WikiLeaks and talks of 'bloodlust' of US helicopter crew.
There was no "bloodlust" of the helicopter crew. No matter what people think about forcing greater transparency from government --- and no doubt that's a worthy objective --- the WikiLeaks video was designed to do one thing: discredit the United States government and delegitimize American military operations in Iraq and around the world. The whole campaign of lies surrounding the release of that video was the epitome of left-wing evil. Screw Bradley Manning and his progressive enablers. Here's hoping he dies in prison.

Manning Bloodlust

Also at the Washington Post, "Bradley Manning pleads guilty to 10 lesser charges, explains motive."

And at Twitchy, "Bradley Manning pleads guilty to 10 charges, Michael Moore hails as hero."
