Civil liberties writer Kevin Gosztola of Firedoglake.com discusses with “Democracy Now!” on Tuesday the pending decision by the judge in the Bradley Manning case whether to dismiss a number of charges against the Army private, including that he aided the enemy when he passed hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Manning’s defense says the prosecution has failed to provide sufficient evidence to show Manning had knowledge that the leak would aid al-Qaida and other enemies of the United States. Lawyers for the government have said that, based on his training, Manning knew that al-Qaida and other groups could have access to the documents.

Gosztola is one of only a handful of journalists reporting from the Manning trial on a daily basis. “It really is only being covered when the outlets in the U.S. media feel they have an obligation to cover something,” Gosztola told “Democracy Now!”
