Prosecutors in the court martial of Bradley Manning have tried to prove he had a "general evil intent" and knew the classified material would be seen by al-Qaida.
- Legal experts say an 'aiding the enemy' conviction could set a precedent as Manning did not give the material directly to al-Qaida.
- In bringing the charge prosecutors cited the Civil War-era court martial of Henry Vanderwater, a Union soldier convicted in 1863 of the offence for giving a newspaper in Virginia a command roster that was then published
- Prosecutors say he is a traitor who leaked information he had sworn to protect
- They argued that Osama bin Laden had obtained some of the documents published by WikiLeaks before he was killed in 2011
- WikiLeaks published the vast majority of the hundreds of thousands of documents leaked online, in many cases without omitting personal or logistically sensitive information
