Attorneys for Bradley Manning, the soldier found guilty of turning over 700,000 classified U.S. files to WikiLeaks, called on a military judge to sentence him to a term that "doesn't rob him of his youth," rather than the 60 years urged by prosecutors. Manning was working as a low-level intelligence analyst in Baghdad in 2010 when he committed the largest unauthorized release of secret documents in U.S. history.
