The Courage of Bradley ManningSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Sun, 03/03/2013 - 21:03
I want to share an article that moved me very deeply on this day. Here is a profound part of it:
Bradley Manning served democracy far better than the generals who want him sent to jail
Soldiers keeping their mouths shut keeps things in the same sorry condition, writes Afghanistan veteran and author Joe Glenton
"....Manning has wrestled back something of enormous value to us. And he’s done it at huge risk. Cowards and traitors, we should recall, are not renowned for facing down decades in prison on points of principle – which he must have known was on the cards. His is the territory of actual heroism. If there has been one episode in the War on Terror which truly represents the idea of a selfless soldier, it is the courage of the Bradley Manning."
