Manning “Guilty”—Of Exposing the Truth

Aug 5, 2013

Private Bradley Manning received numerous guilty verdicts in his espionage trial for releasing military documents and videos to WikiLeaks. He was found not guilty on the most serious charge, “aiding the enemy,” which carried an automatic life sentence. But the sentences on the multiple other charges could still add up to 136 years.

Manning simply published the truth about what the U.S. was doing in Afghanistan, Iraq and around the world–in the government’s own words and images.

But that’s exactly what these murderers in the government do not want to get out: the truth about the atrocities and murders they’ve committed around the world. They’ll seek to punish anyone who exposes that truth.
