Bradley Manning Pleads Guilty to Some Charges

Accused of leaking classified files to Wikileaks


Washington. A US soldier accused of leaking a trove of secret files to WikiLeaks has offered to plead guilty to some but not all of the charges he faces in a pending court-martial, his defense lawyer said.

Bradley Manning, 24, "is not pleading guilty to the specifications as charged by the government," his attorney, David Coombs wrote on his blog on Wednesday.
