“Bradley Manning should be regarded as a hero. He is doing what an honest, decent citizen should be doing: letting your population know what the government, the people who rule you are doing. They want to keep it secret of course.”
Noam Chomsky

    As much as I endorse Mannings leaks about human rights abuses, if I look at the law, im afraid I have to conclude that I agree with the judge’s conviction for espionage.
    The law clearly states that you do not need to have the intend to injure the US but it’s enough if the leaks could be used by others to hurt the US.

    The problem is that manning did not just leak human rights abuses, im afraid that some of the diplomatic cables that he leaked indeed contain info that could be used to hurt the US, thus justifying his conviction.
