Blowing Whistles On War Crimes Is Not A Crime


Rallies organized by several groups are being held this week for Bradley Manning, charged with leaking the Wikileaks video of the U.S. Apache attack in Baghdad. Exposing war crimes, his supporters reasonably argue, is not a crime. Rally at the Marine Corps Quantico, where he is being held, here. Facebook page here.

Manning is charged with "such conduct being prejudicial to good order and discipline in the armed forces and being of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces."

We know things are bad. We know it's worth the fight.

You are part of a strong and vibrant community of thinkers and doers who believe another world is possible. Alone we are weak. Together we can make a difference. At Common Dreams, we don't look away from the world—we are not afraid—our mission is to document those doing wrong and galvanize those doing good. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. We have now launched our annual Summer Campaign. Can you pitch in today?
