What a surprise! And the members of the court-martial board (the jury) will listen to all of the “evidence” and their deductive reasoning will be formed by the following mantra: IF THE GOVERNMENT THOUGHT MANNING WAS INNOCENT THEY WOULD NOT HAVE CHARGED HIM WITH THIS CRIME—AND THEREFORE IT IS OUR DUTY TO CONVICT HIM.
