Today this man Pfc. Bradley Manning will find out if he'll spend the rest of his life behind bars for aiding the enemy. After spending three years in custody on charges of the largest classified leak in U.S. history it's now judgement time.

A verdict from the judge in the court-martial of Manning will be announced at 1 p.m. ET Tuesday, according to a spokeswoman for the military district of Washington.

If found guilty on the aiding the enemy charge, Manning could be sentenced to life in prison. He has pleaded guilty to nearly a dozen lesser charges that carry a sentence of up to 20 years behind bars. Whistle-blower or a traitor who betrayed his country?
