Manning Testimony: An Overdue Sliver of Sunlight
Citing the wish that "the voice of this generation's most prolific whistleblower can be heard—literally—by the world," the Freedom of the Press Foundation has leaked and published the full audio recording of Bradley Manning’s testimony to a military court about his motivations for leaking over 700,000 government documents to WikiLeaks.
