Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI), a member of the House Intelligence Committee, told WHMI, a Michigan radio station, that Pfc. Bradley Manning should be executed if he did, in fact, leak classified documents and video to WikiLeaks.

Bradley Manning found not guilty of aiding the enemy, but:
1:25 PM EST Bradley Manning is found guilty of enough charges to potentially be put in prison for over 100 years.
