I was on MSNBC yesterday with Tamron Hall discussing the sentencing of Bradley Manning (prior to the announcement that henceforth she would like to be called Chelsea).

The military judge in the trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning has released “special findings,” which were requested by the defense, on how she arrived at a guilty verdict for the offenses Manning was convicted of committing.
Manning was convicted of six violations of the Espionage Act. The military prosecutors had to prove that the information he released to WikiLeaks had been classified, that he had reason to believe the information was classified, that disclosure of the material “would be potentially damaging to the United States or might be useful to an enemy of the United States.”
