“Pfc. Manning was not a humanist; he was a hacker. He was not a whistle-blower. He was a traitor, a traitor who understood the value of compromised information in the hands of the enemy and took deliberate steps to ensure that they, along with the world, received it.”

It's a military proceeding, not subject to the same public disclosure laws as a civil or criminal trial.
Typically, there are a panel of judges (thus the name military tribunal) rather than a jury.
I believe the proceeding is held under the rules of the UCMJ rather than "criminal law" processes, but I'm certain to be corrected if this is in error.
@3ristar President Obama perhaps should pardon Bradley Manning.

Btw, a win for @RonPaul is a win for @wikileaks and Bradley Manning.
