In February this year Private First Class Bradley Manning pleaded guilty to sending restricted documents to WikiLeaks in violation of military regulations, making him the source of the largest intelligence leak in US history. In his statement to the court he talked about "revealing the true costs of war".
Ahead of his trial in June, a panel of media and human rights specialists, including former Guardian investigations editor David Leigh, Al Jazeera's Richard Gizbert, New York-based human rights attorney Chase Madar and London-based activist Naomi Colvin, discuss the questions raised by this case about the fate of whistleblowers and the future of relationships between journalists and their sources.
