Soldier Bradley Manning Found Guilty Of Violating Espionage Act

July 30. 2013

Bradley Manning

Private Bradley Manning, the soldier responsible for bravely leaking government documents and footage to website Wikileaks.org, showing among other things, civilians being murdered in the Middle East, has been found guilty on six counts of violating the Espionage Act of 1917. The 25-year-old American born solider, who spent some of his formative years in Wales (United Kingdom), was acquitted of the most serious charge of "Aiding the Enemy."

Edward Snowden

Manning has been kept under terrible prison conditions, meant to punish and break him physically and mentally, before trial. His conviction comes as a disappointment to many, who view it as a blow to free speech and free press. Manning exposed government wrongdoing and like NSA leaker, Edward Snowden, should be commended for that. It's ironic and hypocritical that select members of government egregiously break the law, yet those that expose it should be sentenced to prison.  There's something very wrong with that.
