Submission + - WikiLeaks Gives $15k to Bradley Manning Defense (

wiredmikey writes: The Web site supporting Bradley Manning, the Army soldier charged with leaking a massive number of U.S. classified information to WikiLeaks, posted an announcement on its site today, saying that WikiLeaks had transferred $15,100 to the legal trust account of Manning’s attorney. WikiLeaks has been publicly soliciting donations specifically for the expenses of Manning’s legal defense following his arrest in May 2010.

The contribution by WikiLeaks brings the total funds raised and transferred to Bradley’s civilian legal defense team, led by attorney David Coombs, to over $100,000. Supporters say that a "vigorous defense" for Manning is estimated to cost $115,000.
