(Newser) – There's been much ado about Bradley Manning's state of mind and imprisonment over the course of pre-trial hearings this past week, but the Army private and accused WikiLeaker now won't get his day in court until March, reports the AP. A military judge announced the change today, saying that longer-than-expected pretrial proceedings meant Manning's trial would be delayed by six weeks to March 16 or 18. He faces life in prison.

I'd like to wipe that smile off his face. What is never talked about (I've read it once) is the people that were imprisoned or murdered because of his actions. However, one of the leaked documents confirmed that Saddam Hussein did indeed have some WMDs. I only read that once also.

The government can pile all the charges they want on Manning, but at the end of the day all they need is for one charge to stick and he should be good to go in prison for at least twenty.
