Manning is a hero that exposed US war crimes that the government and the military tried to hide. The US has been at war for over 10 years for no reason at all!

He knew exactly what he was doing was illegal, for that he needs to be punished! All wars are a crime but sometimes you have no choice but to fight. 9/11 changed everything, I guess you have forgotten that?! I am not surprised by your comment.

What the mainstream media skates over in its coverage of the Rios Montt trial is the hand Ronald Reagan had in getting the genocidal ball rolling.

The early 1980s were particularly violent in the Latin American theater of the Cold War. Smack in the middle of Guatemala's 36-year civil war which claimed 200,000 lives, Rios Montt edged out the winner of a sham election in a bloodless coup and began systematically repressing support for the Marxist opposition,as his forces raped women, burned villages, and murdered indigenous Mayan peasants.

From day one Reagan backed Rios Montt, feeding him millions first in jeeps and trucks, and then helicopter and plane parts, despite clearly articulated reports from both the CIA and international watchdogs that genocide was accumulating bodies in the ditches and gullies of Guatemala

Miss Manning should be rendered to Gitmo and stood in front of a firing squad. His co-conspirator, Julian Assange should be hunted down and dispatched by way of US drones.

Waiting for the prosecution to PROVE that Manning aided the enemy in any way, shape or form.

Manning is a HERO who stood up against the atrocious actions of his own government.

There are military 'secrets' such as manuvers, weaponry, tactics, etc.

Then there are miltary 'secrets' that are just nasty things the government wants kept in the dark.

Manning exposed the nasty ones.

He was not helping the enemy or passing things (like weapons) to the Taliban or al Qaeda.
That is what the CIA does.

Technically.
Then again, America has not clarified where he is required to aid and abet the cover-up and commission of a (war) crime?

Some clear guidance is needed of when to help criminals in America.

any ideas?

Used to be that someone was considered INNOCENT until PROVEN guilty.

Calling a member of the armed services a criminal before the verdict was in is part of what is WRONG with America today.

"9/11" had absolutely nothing to do with Iraq.
I guess YOU have forgotten that.
I never said it did BUT we saw on the day how far they were willing to go. Why take a chance with Saddam AFTER he had violated 17 UN resolutions?
