Army Private Bradley Manning could face life in prison for allegedly leaking government documents to the web site, Wikileaks. This month, Manning was charged with aiding the enemy, among other things. He's being held at a brig in Virginia and his lawyer and supporters say he's being held in isolated conditions; Amnesty International says the conditions are harsh and punitive.
