That’s not generally grounds to have charges dismissed, but it’s causing in internal stir, even if the press coverage has been sparse. Manning is accused of espionage for leaking a trove of electronic documents, including classified material, in the Wikileaks scandal. His court-martial appears to be slated for March, and he’s facing life in prison. He has offered to plead out on the charges for a reduction to a 16-year sentence.
