Bradley Manning exposed war crimes and should be released. If the prosecution prevails every news outlet and whistle blower in the country is in danger of prosecution by the government.

He's not a hero or a whistleblower, he's a coward and a traitor. Life in prison would be to lenient for this pathetic little boy.

#tmauel: He violated his trust and released information Classified: SECRET. He is not a hero, he is not a whistleblower. He is a CRIMINAL who BETRAYED his NATION on the BATTLEFIELD! Tens of thousands of troop's lives were unnecessarily placed in greater danger due to his willful act of betrayal. As someone who served and was leading soldiers in this same combat zone during the time he committed his crime, I can assure you, his crimes are not trivial. Here's to hearing the judge find him guilty on all counts and sentencing this traitor to the maximum penalties possible under the UCMJ!

The Manning trial is designed to go after the number one target of the U.S. government Wikileaks. If Manning is prosecuted and Assange and Wikileaks effectively closed the first amendment to the constitution is severely compromised. This will prove to be one of the most important trials in U.S. history.
