The Bradley Manning Trial: A Charade


By War Criminals Watch - Posted on 08 August 2013

by Terri Suess           Under the Geneva Conventions and the Nuremberg Principles, a soldier's responsibility is to do exactly what Bradley Manning did – expose any and all war crimes. NurembergPrinciple VII states, "Complicity in the commission of a crime against peace, a war crime, or a crime against humanity as set forth in Principle VI is a crime under international law."

Watch the video of "Collateral Murder" – the Army's own videotape of soldiers shooting unarmed reporters and civilians and laughing about it. Then tell me if Bradley Manning –who released this information to the public – is the war criminal.

Bradley Manning was held for three years without being charged, including 10 months in Solitary Confinement. That alone should secure his freedom.He could sue the United States for violation of basic protections to be accorded any prisoner. This whole charade of a military trial should be an embarrassment to any American who believes in our constitution, our role in the global community and as signatory to international treaties.

The conviction of Bradley Manning for releasing information about war crimes and abysmal war planning and engagement – not to the enemy, but to the American public! –is a travesty of the highest order. He has provided the truth, precisely the information needed in a democracy to direct policy.
