Bradley Manning Trial Discussion: The Verdict Approaches

from ReasonTV :

As the court martial of Bradley Manning nears a verdict, public opinion remains sharply divided over the consequences of his actions. The military’s restraints on media coverage may have reduced overall interest in the trial, but that hasn’t stopped dedicated citizens and journalists from subjecting every syllable of the proceedings to a steady flow of passionate, often partisan, scrutiny.

As well they should. The case centers on some of the most troubling issues of contemporary politics: excessive government secrecy, war crimes, the Arab Spring, encryption technology, and the use of solitary confinement as torture. Manning’s fate may set the precedent for how the United States regards other leakers, like Edward Snowden, as either whistleblowers or traitors.
