I would not mistreat him. Court-martial him and then shoot him for treason yes. Mistreat? No, even a condemned animal should be treated humanely. There was NO EXCUSE for what this turd did and Wiki Leaks is JUST AS GUILTY. Just because you have classified material does not give you the right to release it or do what you choose with it. Wiki should have immediately notified the US government, his government of this information and worked with them to stop the blood-letting. WIKI IS TRASH AND ITS OWNER IS A TREASON TO NATO AS WELL. If were I president of the US WIKI would be classified as an enemy combatant and I would act accordingly.

You know this little Private is the only one going to get burned. Nobody at the upper rungs of the Chain of Command is going to get in trouble for losing track of all that information.

This is another eff'd up attempt by our military do scapegoat a lowly private, who happens to be gay, much as they did to the ones guarding Abu Grahib prison.

The ones at the top get off scot free, while the lower rungs get prison or death.

No, Bradley Manning if he did this IS A HERO. And needs to be released immediately.

Perhaps the courageous UN envoy will be able to shed some light on this.

Manning should NOT be tortured, or held in solitary, and SHOULD have access to an attorney, and either be charged, or released.

Nearly a year in solitary IS TORTURE.

Thanks alot Obama for keepig the Patriot Act in place and using it as warmongering fascists George Tush and Prick Cheney did to damage the United States beyond repair.

Whether or not his superiors get burned is a separate issue. This little worm needs to get a 4' x 6' cell w/bread 'n water until his hair falls out.

Not that I don't support what the private did, but he did seriously break a lot of rules and he is going to have to face the consequences for doing so.

It's kind of like joining the armed forces, doing drugs, then wondering why you're getting kicked out.

My question is,why would a private in the military have unrestricted access to 250,000 pages of diplomatic cables that could "supposedly" damage national security? This was not classified information for the construction of a nuclear weapon or highly secretive weapons system, this was the gossip of diplomats,specifically the backroom chatter of American diplomats that embarrass people, it doesn't endanger any human life.

How about this old adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure

Uhhmm...if the mod squad has got the goods on manning, why hasn't he been charged? I mean it's awful brave that the mod squad has got him locked up, deep in the recesses of Leavenworth, where he can no longer tattle on them, but why wait to court martial him? Seems to me they are loosing face daily. Maybe it's because they don't have anything on him, other than he is gay?

What's with the "gay/nabla" ad hominem, if he doesn't like women why is he being brought up on sexual charges against women? Also I don't blame the government, this entire matter was first disclosed to them by Adrain Lamo the same person who broke into the New York Times internal computer network in 2002.

I'm sorry you are not discussing Assange, you are referring to Bradley Manning, but still i don't understand the relevance of his sexual orientation.

No. They call you momma ditzzy. A private who releases classified information is a hero? Are you still in junior high school?

Perhaps you should be in the brig instead of Manning, for disclosing the alleged evidence of the case (tampering with evidence). Where did you get this information and how?

Clearly, the UN is part of the fake African communist dictator Imam Obama and the radical liberal socialists to revolution of the world to one world order under Obama and the UN which explain why Wikileak’s Assange and his co-conspirators with the NY Times are the heroes of the liberals in America and the Jihadists of the world. The conspiracy of the Obama regime with the UN and the liberal communists of the world against the national security and economy of the American people.
CIA and US Intelligence suffered major blow due to liberal Elite media leaking of US top secrets from the pentagon to the Iranian, Pakistani, Saudi Arabian and Syrian regimes and their Jihadist Islamic terrorist organizations and to the communistic regimes of China, Russia and North Korean, among others. The fact that million of top secrets were available to Wikileak and to the liberal State media of the NY that rushed to publish them about US intelligence, CIA and US troops in Afghanistan and Pakistan about six months ago prove that the Obama anti-American regime and the radical liberal socialists were seeking the irreversible damage to US Military and Intelligence. Obama’s regime had meeting with the NY Times editors time and again during the recent months before every release of top secrets aimed at harming the CIA and US Intelligence and leading to the ousting of CIA top agent from Pakistan after that his name was release. The horses are out of the barn because the doors of the barn were left open intentionally and closing the doors now by CIA is a joke. It will take years to mend the damage to the national security of the American people that was forsaken by liberal agenda and one-world socialistic order under Obama and The UN that Obama trusts to protect the security of America.

When our military filmed the execution of civilians in Iraq from a helicopter, including two reporters from Reuters, Bradley Manning had the foresight to make sure this was exposed, in addition to the thousands of cables collected for this express purpose.

He identified the evil beging done in OUR NAME, and by exposing that, he is a HERO.

Protecting us against domestic enemies is just as patriotic as defending us against foreign ones. Evil is evil. Especially when we commit it.

I guess the founding fathers were all terrorists in your view of the world, eh, Whiningelectron?

I hardly call anyone who downloads secret and private emails, documents etc from their govt and releases them a "hero". Strange society we now live in, strange generation that thinks it's heroic and cool to be a traitor unto their own country. Such a dishonorable character wouldn't even be tolerated back in WW2 and not accpeted by so many in society either.

It is wrong for soldiers to commit such acts, but they are a few among thousands who are honorable.

No need to applaud the actions of a traitor though. People like you like to really jump onto such information when it comes out but remain fairly silent of what the enemy dies.

I'll speak on Afghanistan since my country is there.....

War is a cruel thing. There is no use in reforming it. The crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.---William Tecumseh Sherman--

Our soldiers have to follow rules. Our soldiers have to follow the Geneva convention. Our soldiers are scrutinized. Our soldiers sometimes don't know if they should even shoot. Meanwhile, an enemy can throw acid into the faces of female school children, can suicide bomb indiscrimantly, can terrorize a village, can behead a man they consider a traitor, etc...If our militaries were actually allowed to fight a "war", maybe things would be slightly different than the usual media who report failure all the time. Time for people like you to throw some support behind our militaries.

There were no commercial plane crashes on 9-11. There were no WMD's in Iraq. These US christian soldiers are murderers.
