    Bradley Manning ... U.S. Traitor.

    So army Pfc. Bradley Manning the former intelligence analyst who perpetrated the largest leak of classified information in U.S. history, has been acquitted of the most serious charge against him.

    However, Manning was found guilty of other serious offenses including five charges of espionage which could jail him for over 100 years.

    Let us hope that sanity prevails and that he indeed receives life imprisonment.

    He got really lucky, in my opinion. Real people with real families were endangered by his actions. The amount of damage he caused still cannot be measured.

    I get that he thought he had a duty to do what he did. Fine. But all behavior has consequences. You might feel that you have to rob a bank to feed your family...but be prepared to pay the price for it.

    Might have been more interesting with an open trial and a jury of his peers. Quite possibly they would have refused to convict him if they thought it only right the government should not be able to cover up illegal activities. A closed trial with Some of the things he revealed have led to prosecution It does america little credit on the international scene though I don't suppose that matters to most americans.

    It's not justice. All it does is show the hypocrisy and fraud that America has become.

    What this does is create an atmosphere of fear amongst concerned people who see the government doing wrong. Open your mouth and you will swing from a rope. This amounts to a further loss of freedom that as of late is leaving us. Every journalist, every government watch dog out there is subject to the same persecution. That's not freedom of the press which is something we dearly need.

    In Russia if a journalist says the wrong thing about a person they could get beaten on the street or worse, here we just do the same thing in a kangaroo court. So it looks better.

    Manning is a crybaby. Now he's whining he was bullied because he's gay. Some defense. He joined the military, no one forced him, he violated his oath of service that he willingly took.
