U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning has been acquitted of aiding the enemy for giving classified secrets to WikiLeaks.  The military judge hearing the case, Army Col. Denise Lind, announced the verdict Tuesday. The charge was the most serious of 21 counts. It carried a possible life sentence without parole. Manning was convicted of five espionage counts, five theft charges, a computer fraud charge and other military infractions.  Manning's sentencing hearing is set to begin tomorrow.   Now Manning is by no means out of the woods yet.   If the possible sentences for all the charges of which he WAS convicted are added up,  Private Manning could be looking at over 100 years in prison.
