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."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
