Leaking Military Secrets to the Public: Bradley Manning, American Hero


Monday, 20 September 2010 07:18



'Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is accused of leaking military secrets to the public. This week, his supporters are holding rallies in 21 cities, seeking Manningís release from military custody. Manning is in the brig for allegedly disclosing a classified video depicting U.S. troops shooting civilians from an Apache helicopter in Iraq in July 2007. The video, available at www.collateralmurder.com , was published by WikiLeaks on April 5, 2010. Manning faces 52 years in prison. No charges have been filed against the soldiers in the video.
In October 1969, the most famous whistleblower, Daniel Ellsberg, smuggled out of his office and made public a 7,000 page top secret study of decision making during the Vietnam War. It became known as the Pentagon Papers. Dan risked his future, knowing that he would likely spend life in prison for his expose.
The release of the Pentagon Papers ultimately helped end not only the Nixon presidency, but also the Vietnam War, in which 58,000 Americans and three million Indochinese were killed. Danís courageous act was essential to holding accountable our leaders who had betrayed American values by starting and perpetuating an illegal and deadly war.'

This guy is no hero, and he will not be released from military custody. I sincerely hope that he gets a minimum of 52 years in Leavenworth, at hard labor.

Ask the families of those Afghans he exposed to Taliban retribution for working with NATO -

He is an accomplice and willing accessory to the deliberate murder & torture, as we know full well how the Taliban exacts revenge.
