Collateral Injustice

Manning got 35 years. Those whose crimes he exposed - Bush, Cheney, Rice et al - got book deals, speaking tours, slimy freedom. The Center for Constitutional Rights on this "frontal assault on the First Amendment: "We fear for the future of our country." Here's the original Collateral Murder video as a reminder of Manning's "crime."

"It is a travesty of justice that Manning, who helped bring to light the criminality of U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, is being punished while the alleged perpetrators of the crimes he exposed are not even investigated.  Every aspect of this case sets a dangerous precedent for future prosecutions of whistleblowers – and we fear for the future of our country in the wake of this case."
