Manning branded a 'traitor and anarchist' at court martial

Soldier Bradley Manning betrayed his country by passing secret files to "information anarchists" at WikiLeaks and knew al-Qaeda would see the documents online, a prosecutor said in closing arguments. As Manning's espionage court martial entered its final stage, the prosecution asked the judge to find him guilty of "aiding the enemy", dismissing the defence's portrait of the accused as a naive but well-intentioned truth-teller.
