Prosecutors to argue Manning case
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Prosecutors will continue to argue their case Tuesday against Army Private First Class Bradley Manning.
In opening statements they say he knew the dangers of the thousands of documents he was leaking.
Supporters gathered across the country to rally for Manning.
Earlier this year he pleaded guilty to 10 of the 22 charges against him.
But, he's fighting the most serious charge, aiding the nation's enemies.
The defense says Manning meant well. They say the thousands of classified documents he leaked revealed a disregard for human life on the part of the U.S. Military and he hoped to end that policy by bringing it to light.
