Deliberations begin in WikiLeaks trial after judge hears final words from both sides

A military judge is deliberating the fate of an Army private accused of aiding the enemy by engineering a high-volume leak of U.S. secrets to WikiLeaks.

Army Col. Denise Lind started deliberating Friday in the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

The 25-year-old soldier has acknowledged he sent hundreds of thousands of classified documents and some battlefield video to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq.

Lind must decide whether Manning knew al-Qaida would see the material, as prosecutors allege, or if he was simply a naive soldier trying to expose wrongdoing by the military and U.S. diplomats.

Lind has said she will give a day's notice before reconvening the court to announce her findings
