END the illegal detention and torture of Bradley Manning NOW!

Obama needs to man up and act like the humane, liberal leader he pretended to be to gain office. If not, he can go in 2012.

End the U.S. military/terror/security state NOW!

When was it proved he did it? He's imprisoned because they need a scapegoat for documents that show just how much the administration f'cked up.

We've got a Bush administration that went into war on false premises (Weapons of mass destruction, al-Qaeda, oil etc.). No one seems to have the balls to imprison those cocks*ckers, do they?

What are you, 12 years old? Scapegoat? He not only admitted doing it, he bragged about it!
And, why aren't you complaining about Obama interfering in Libya? I guess you haven't read the news in the last 3 or 4 years. LOL

They will proven it at his trial!!! There is ebough evidence to lock him up until he is convected. Now take of your own back yard LIMEY!!!

On May 20, 2010, Manning is alleged to have contacted Adrian Lamo, a former "grey hat" hacker convicted in 2004 of having accessed The New York Times computer network without permission. Lamo had been profiled that day by Kevin Poulsen in Wired magazine after being hospitalized and diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome. Poulsen, now a reporter, is himself a former hacker who had used Lamo as a source several times over the years.

Lamo later told Glenn Greenwald that Manning had sent him several encrypted e-mails on May 20 after seeing a tweet from Lamo about WikiLeaks. Lamo said he was unable to decrypt the e-mails but replied to them anyway, not knowing who the e-mails were from or what they said, and invited the e-mailer to chat on AOL IM. Manning sent him some more e-mails, also encrypted. Lamo said he later turned these and the earlier e-mails over to the FBI without having read them. In a series of chats from May 21 until May 25/26—around 20 percent of which were published by Wired and The Washington Post—Manning, using the handle "Bradass87," apparently told Lamo that he had leaked classified material. He introduced himself to Lamo as "an army intelligence analyst, deployed to eastern Baghdad, pending discharge for 'adjustment disorder.'" Just over 10 minutes later he asked Lamo:He said he had been leaking files to a "white-haired Aussie" (The Washington Post): The next day he said he felt isolated:On May 25 he said he hoped the material would lead to "worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms," and if not we're "doomed as a species...(Wired)". He said the reaction to the Baghdad airstrike video had given him hope: "CNN’s iReport was overwhelmed ... Twitter exploded ..." (Wired). He continued: "i want people to see the truth… regardless of who they are ... because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public.

What's the point of a court martial then? He never plead guilty, durrr.

How do you know I'm not complaining about Obama elsewhere on Topix, the 'net or even real life? And why does it even matter whether I do or not? Two wrongs don't make a right.

Smart people know it's illegal to hold people without charge under conditions approaching actual torture.

Being in the military doesn't take away your rights, dummy.

He's a heroic whistleblower and, while he may have technically broken some rules and deserve dishonorable discharge, being held indefinitely without charge under conditions approximating torture is illegal.

He didn't "sell" the documents but provided them to Wikileaks for political purposes.

You're a frothing, far-right idiot. STF U, yourself.

Well it's clear that you have no clue what the hell you are babbling about. He is in the military and falls under the UCMJ which is diffrent from civilian law moron. He can be held with charges pending and dureing an investegation idiot!!! He violated certain contract agreement that he signed because he had access to this type of material and as a result violated several UCMJ articles. Now take your socialist muslim azz and blow yourself up in the desert somewhere jackazz!! You don't what the hell you are talking about!!! BTW I like how you azz holes saying nothing has been provenso let him go, but yet you sit here and claim he is being tortured and kept in inhuman condition!! What facts do you have to support these allegation dumbazz? Wait it's because you are a hipocritical muslim who plays the race card daily. Shut the fck up idiot!!
