Republican calls on death penalty for Manning


Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) believes the death penalty should be
applied in the case of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning if the accused provider
of nearly 80,000 secret intelligence documents to WikiLeaks is found
guilty by military tribunal.

Rogers made the comments Monday during an interview with the Michigan
radio station WHMI, which later posted an audio file of the interview.

"The death penalty clearly should be considered here," Rogers said.
"[Manning] clearly aided the enemy to what may result in the death of
U.S. soldiers or those cooperating. If that is not a capital offense, I
don’t know what is."
