A US military judge has sentenced Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to 35 years in prison. Manning faced up to 90 years behind bars, while prosecutors sought to put the whistleblower away for a minimum of six decades. RT has been covering the event widely with numerous of experts appearing on air. (In a LIVE panel before the sentencing, activist James Kirchick joined RT's discussion on Bradley Manning. But instead of speaking about the matter at hand, he chose to partake in a self-promoting rant that was not at all related to the topic). The lead attorney for Army Private first class Bradley Manning told the media on Wednesday that he'll begin asking US President Barack Obama to pardon his client as early as next week.
