One year in jail, Bradley Manning is a hero

"Even many Americans agree that Bradley Manning is a true patriot, not a traitor. He reveres the founding ideals of the US – an open, honest government accountable to the people, which pursues its policies by lawful means that respect human rights. At great personal risk, he sought to expose grave crimes that were perpetrated and then hidden by the US government and military.

These are the characteristics of a man of conscience, motivated by altruism. Any misjudgements he made in his alleged release of certain documents are far outweighed by the positive good overall. Thanks to Manning, we, the people, know the truth."

Quiltingsando my wise friend

We have talked many times of such things like bring them all home.Mannings problem stems from the word "Responsibility" and oath of contract.He did a good favor to the American people but he is still bound by a pledge,oath and verbal contract.He knew this when he committed the act and had decided that within himself it was more important than even himself or his personal life.Let's compare it to a marriage contract,I am toast if I stray from this contract and in honesty if I was looked down on for doing so it would be correct.Now here lies the problem,Is there an effort to save cheating husbands in the name of compassion?Thank god some of us understand why it happens and do forgive?

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

I don't have an opinion

I'm just trying to figure out what is going on. Is the off topic trying to say he doesn't exist and there is no one in prison or is there a real person in prison?

If Manning is a real person and he did what he did to help the American people that is fine, but if he is a creation to get the a particular emotion from us then we need to know this also. Maybe, I need a nap.

this is garbage. Brads real

this is garbage. Brads real and being treated horribly. How many people know who Bradley is? Not that many, i bet you could walk down the street and ask 50 people who he is and maybe 1 will know. I wear bradley manning shirts atleast twice a week. Ive literally had maybe 3 people know who he is. He is by no means a creation to get an emotion from us or to try and get a formed opinion from the public. If that were the case you would see it on the news all the time trying to spin the story somehow and youd here a bunch of idiots talking about bradley spouting off talking points, but instead the government and the news are trying to keep as quiet as possible. I dont care what alex jones maybe said about the subject he's an idiot and always has been. Dont get caught up in the phoney stories of it being a government creation thats just more distraction for people to not help bradley.

"Q"?

He really is there,But he is there of his own decisions and free will knowing he was breaking his oath to his officers.See this is the problem,No one ever displays the whole "oath" taken when a person takes a hitch in the service.There is more to this story than is being presented.At sometime personal responsibility and personal choices come into play.He is a hero for breaking the "oath".

It is just that I only

see that one picture all the time. I have not kept up on this but it would seem like there would be some pictures of him by now, like being transferred from one prison to the next or with a lawyer or something. Are you aware of any other pictures of him?

Manning is a hero to me.

The only people afraid of the truth, are those who have something to hide, and in this case, they are hiding a seriously flawed foreign policy.

Disagree

I believe in classified information. That kind of information is necessary to get a real understanding of foreign relations. What he did was wrong, he didn't help anyone, he just hurt foreign relationships with the rest of the world.

haha oh man. The reason the

haha oh man. The reason the government has any information at all is because i loaned them money to get information, thats my money and my information.
