Free Bradley Manning: An American Hero

Bradley Manning has served three years in prison for informing the US public about war crimes the US government is committing in our name. We owe him a debt of gratitude for having the courage it took to do this. The White House and the few thousand unelected people that make the decisions that affect all our lives, including those outside our borders, are moving to impose further restrictions on our civil rights including making investigative journalism a crime. Their treatment of Manning is directed at the rest of us: "keep your mouths shut" is the message. Don't wait until your back is against the wall before you fight back.
