Bradley Manning nears 1000 days in US jail with no trial

By Duncan Roden | Tuesday, February 19, 2013

February 23 marks the 1000th day in which alleged WikiLeaks whistleblower, 24-year-old US Army intelligence officer Bradley Manning, has been jailed by US authorities without trial.

A pre-trial hearing in January in the case of Manning, concluded that his defence would be restricted to arguing motive during his trial, scheduled for June 3.

Manning has been accused of leaking thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, which revealed a wide range of US war crimes, as well as evidence of corruption and lying by a range of governments.

BradleyManning.org said Manning is “accused of releasing the Collateral Murder video, that shows the killing of unarmed civilians and two Reuters journalists, by a US Apache helicopter crew in Iraq. He is also accused of sharing the Afghan War Diary, the Iraq War Logs, and a series of embarrassing US diplomatic cables.

“These documents ... illuminated such issues as the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, along with a number of human rights abuses by U.S.-funded contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy.

“Given the war crimes exposed, if PFC Bradley Manning was the source for these documents, he should be given a medal of honor.”

Why don't we ALL contact Rand about this?

My guess is, he will duck this most important issue and remain silent!

I hope I am wrong.

Black is white -- war is peace...

The Status Quo thinks -- we will just kneel down.
Surrender.

And ALL criminals will be judged!

Over 300 million people and why we don't have million man marches?
Why airports are not blocked by hundreds of thousands?

March 23rd is another anniversary of Patrick Henry's speech 'Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death'...can we get patriots in Boston area and others from all across the country to stand tall for Liberty and shut down Boston's Logan airport?

LIBERTY vs TSA?

Because the area is so vast.

Because most are trying to survive, as in feed their families. Because peace marches upon these devils dont bring nothing but violence.

See the "Bonus Army" expecally those active duty and vets. How the coward Paten and McCarther violated the constitution and used active military to attack their very own vetrans some of whom actually saved Pattens life. That was military vets non violent march upon washington to just fofill military pay bonus prommises after world war.

The marching that will be necessary and effictive will only come when everyone feels their family and themselves to have their lives threatened. I fear that time is sooner than later.

This article should be plus 300 NOT plus 3

We are ALL Bradley Manning -- in so many ways abused by the system.

Where is the American fire for being free?
Why YOU YES YOU don't protest on the streets of your towns...

Why you don't protest at your local airports?
TSA is fine with you?
Why you don't block all the major airports?
TEA PARTY?
Boston Logan airport should have been shut down by patriots years ago!!!
