US Army denies clemency for WikiLeaks source Manning

US Army Private First Class Bradley Manning departing a US military court facility during his trial at Fort Meade, Maryland, on August 20, 2013A US Army general has denied clemency to the soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, upholding a 35-year sentence. Major General Jeffrey Buchanan, the convening authority in Manning’s court-martial, approved the August findings and sentence of military Judge Denise Lind last week, but his decision was only made public Monday. Manning, who has requested a name change to Chelsea and publicly announced via her lawyers that she considers herself as female, had filed a request for clemency in March. According to military justice rules, Manning’s case will automatically be appealed to the Army Court of Criminal Appeals.
