    Free Bradley Manning!

    Wikileaks video leaker nabbed by creepy snitch

    by Justin Raimondo, June 09, 2010


    No good deed goes unpunished, and that is especially true when it comes to whistleblowers who expose the murderous machinations of the US government: SPC Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old intelligence analyst stationed at Forward Operating Base Hammer in the vicinity of Baghdad, was arrested two weeks ago for having supposedly sent Wikileaks the “Collateral Damage” video of US troops shooting Iraqi civilians. The video, which showed US pilots murdering unarmed Iraqis, including a journalist, in cold blood and laughing about it, was posted to Wikileaks a month ago, and caused an international sensation. On the home front, it focused attention on the war when the issue had gone quiescent, and forced “progressives” to recall one of the major issues that once fueled their movement during the Bush presidency. Now the feds are having their revenge, and just how this came about is ominously murky. Wired, which says Manning “boasted” about his deeds, reports:"

    What happened to the pilots? What has Manning been charged with? Surely there were officially-sanctioned ways for him to report these murders without leaking them on the 'net?

    "Manning – who was locked up two weeks ago, although we’re just finding out now – can’t tell his side of the story, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he never gets to tell it. The government could easily prosecute him with one of their military tribunals, or else limit public access to his trial – if and when they bother to hold one – in the name of “national security.” After all, we wouldn’t want the American public to learn about the incredibly awful things their government routinely does on a global scale, now would we?
