After a judge ruled yesterday that more than 1,000 days in prison without a trial is not too many, alleged WikiLeak-er Bradley Manning will attempt to plead guilty to "some of the minor charges against him," NBC News reports, although there is no plea bargain on the table. The 25-year-old former Army analyst has also requested permission to read a 35-page statement, taking responsibility for leaking documents, but claiming a "noble motive." His long-delayed court martial is scheduled to start in June. In the meantime, the Pentagon has released 84 documents tied to the case, with many more still classified, after repeated requests from those concerned about transparency.
