Article Reprintts 92

The judge presiding over Bradley Manning’s sentencing hearing has rejected  government testimony claiming that Manning’s disclosures to WikiLeaks clearly  resulted in a “chilling effect” on US foreign relations.

The military judge decided that the evidence in question would have only been  admissible had the so-called “chilling effect” come directly after the  information disclosed by Manning was published.
