A military judge has resumed deliberating in the court-martial of an Army private charged with aiding the enemy for giving US secrets to WikiLeaks.

Col Denise Lind is began her third day of deliberations Monday in the trial of Pfc Bradley Manning at Fort Meade. Manning faces a possible life sentence if convicted of the charge.

The 25-year-old also faces 20 other counts, including espionage, computer fraud and theft for admittedly sending hundreds of thousands of classified documents and some battlefield video to the anti-secrecy website while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq.

In closing arguments last week, the defense portrayed Manning as a naive whistleblower who wanted to expose war crimes. Prosecutors call him an anarchist hacker and a traitor.
