Some people think he's a patriot, others believe he is a traitor to the country he served.
Whatever your opinion of him may be, today, Army private Bradley Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Manning was convicted last month of leaking classified, military documents to WikiLeaks, a well-known anti-secrecy group, a violation of the Espionage Act.
Manning had faced more than 90 years.
This case, which has retained national attention for several years now, has at times divided the country. Some have condemned Manning as nothing but a traitor to the country, but others have hailed him as a hero, for trying to make public information the government would not likely have wanted citizens to know.
Manning was first arrested in 2010.
What do you think of the sentence?
