Washington,July 31: The successful prosecution of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning gives a boost to the Obama administration's aggressive pursuit of people it believes have leaked national security secrets to the media.




Manning was acquitted of the most serious charge he faced, aiding the enemy, but he was found guilty Tuesday by a military judge of enough charges to send him to prison for many years, and perhaps the rest of his life.

Legal scholars say they expect the government's case against National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden to be similar to the Manning prosecution, although it would take place in a federal trial court, not a military court-martial.

The Obama administration has pursued unauthorized disclosures of secret information much more aggressively than any of its predecessors.
