FORT MEADE, Md. – The defense could begin their case Monday in the Court-martial of Oklahoma Army Private Bradley Manning.

He faces nearly two-dozen charges, including aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence.

He is accused of providing hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. documents to Wikileaks.

Prosecutors wrapped up their case last week, pointing out Al-Qaeda used the leaked information to plan attacks against the U.S.

Earlier this year Manning told a military judge he leaked war documents to show the true costs of the Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
