The National Lawyers Guild (NLG) calls for the dismissal of all charges against Bradley Manning. The Army announced on Friday that Manning will face a general court martial for allegedly leaking classified information about U.S. policy and practices relating to, among other things, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
What is this world coming to when a judge who has been investigating war crimes is bought up on trial by far right critics who say he is exceeding his jurisdiction. Those who want the judge suspended from his job for up to 20 years say that he is breaching the terms of an amnesty agreed to after the Spanish Civil War.
Since when has it been illegal to investigate those who are responsible for tens of thousands of deaths and disappearances? And why should it be?
This article about Bradley Manning, the U.S Army Private being tried in military court for leaking classified information to Wikileaks, questions why so much information is classified, and to what end.
They kill a child for sport & get 7 years in jail less time served & good behaviour……..DISGUSTING. Shame on you US Army yet again you protect the murderers you have created. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/world/news/article.cfm?c_id=2&objectid=10754066
