Bradley Manning apologizes for leaks; Army releases photo of him dressed as a woman

Pfc. Bradly Manning dressed as a woman?

A photo was released to the public today, showing the former Army analyst in a blonde wig and make-up.

Yesterday, his defense used the picture, which Manning had emailed to a superior – to argue that he was mentally unstable when he leaked more than 700,000 documents to Wikileaks.

Manning was convicted of espionage last month, and could be sentenced up to 90 years in prison.

He gave a short statement today, saying "I understood what I was doing was wrong but I didn't appreciate the broader effects of my actions."

Pentagon Correspondent Chris Lawrence was in the courtroom and is OutFront.
