The court-martial trial begins today (Monday) for Bradley Manning who is the Army Private accused in the largest leak of classified documents in U.S. history.

Manning says he gave documents to the website "Wikileaks" to start a public debate about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Back in February, he pleaded guilty to ten of the 22 charges against him, but not to the most serious charge.

If convicted of aiding the enemy, he could face life in prison.
