Bradley Manning Verdict
Two articles in the Aug 1, 2013 Nation of Change:

1) “Manning Verdict Risks Freedom of the Press if the People Do Not Act“, by Kevin Zeese.

“The crimes Manning was convicted of mean he is risking 136 years in prison.  For a whistleblower who exposed war crimes and unethical behavior in U.S. foreign policy to be facing a lengthy prison term, while the people exposed by government documents are not even investigated, shows how confused [sic] the United States has become.”

“Let the legacy of Manning’s courage be a rallying cry for all of us. It as an opportunity to push back on the U.S. security state and demand that the First Amendment protecting our rights to Freedom of Speech, Assembly and to a Free Press, be re-invigorated.”

2) “Top Ten Ways Bradley Manning Changed the World“, by Juan Cole.

“. . . that we deserved to know some of what he revealed and that his revelations changed the world are undeniable.”
