Justice for Bradley Manning
To: US Department of Defense; US Department of Justice
We, the Undersigned, call for justice for US Army PFC Bradley Manning, incarcerated without charge (as of 18 June 2010) at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait.
Media accounts state that Mr. Manning was arrested in late May for leaking the video of US Apache helicopter pilots killing innocent people and seriously wounding two children in Baghdad, including those who arrived to help the wounded, as well as potentially other material. The video was released by WikiLeaks under the name "Collateral Murder".
If these allegations are untrue, we call upon the US Department of Defense to release Mr. Manning immediately.
If these allegations ARE true, we ALSO call upon the US Department of Defense to release Mr. Manning immediately.
Simultaneously, we express our support for Mr. Manning in any case, and our admiration for his courage if he is, in fact, the person who disclosed the video. Like in the cases of Daniel Ellsberg, W. Mark Felt, Frank Serpico and countless other whistleblowers before, government demands for secrecy must yield to public knowledge and justice when government crime and corruption are being kept hidden.
Justice for Bradley Manning!
The Undersigned Please sign the petition to release Bradley Manning
We live in a country that is gripped by fear. The politicians have been using it for years so they can have more time to gain more power. Its pathetic how easy it is to make a free country UNFREE just by implying there is something to fear. Whistleblowers (people who make a public disclosure of wrongdoing or corruption) are protectors of freedom that is why the Powers condemn them; less public disclosure of wrongdoing, more infringement on the Rights of the People. Arresting and retaining Bradley Manning has exposed what youve been up to. Its time to end using Bradley Manning as a scapegoat in order to stop anyone else that is brave enough to unveil the wrongdoings in government. Give him back his freedom; he is a hero not a sacrificial lamb. thinkingblue aka thethinkingblue.
PS: Why do we as a species still engage in legalized murder?
To say the below video is disturbing is a great understatement. The horror of war is an understatement. Please be aware, there isnt anything that warrants the mayhem that you will see if you click the Play button.
