Pfc. Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army soldier who became a source for WikiLeaks, was found not guilty of "aiding the enemy" after an eight-week court martial in Fort Meade, Md.

However, the decision, announced earlier Tuesday, determined that Manning violated multiple counts of the Espionage Act. So although Manning avoided the harshest sentence, he still could spend decades in a military prison.

Does he deserve that punishment? Weigh in with your vote in our accompanying poll.
