Add comment on:Bradley Manning--a victim of U.S. "enhanced intimidation techniques"!
Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, after subject to over 1,000 days of incarceration--including months of solitary confinement bordering on torture--agreed to plead guilty on several counts of "releasing classified material" to Wikileaks. The released documents--the authencity of which was never contested by the U.S. government--clearly revealed the criminal depravity of American Imperial policies in Iraq & elsewhere since 9-11-2001. Manning's statement emphasized that his primary motive was to inform the American public on the true facts--rather than the official and corporate propaganda--of the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq, and that he hoped the released info would enable ordinary citizens to have an informed debate on U.S. foreign policies.
