Update: Military Judge circles for the kill
http://tinyurl.com/c63v3kg

Bradley Manning (whose grandfather comes from Dublin and who was shipped through Shannon Airport) faces life in prison for exposing the nature of the war millions marched against.

The bureaucrats who ran the anti-war movement (into the ground) in Ireland and England failed to lift a finger in his defence. Too busy embezzling donations and using the war as a marketing opportunity to springboard into parliament, I guess.

If you marched against the war, you implicitly incited people like Manning to nonviolently act against the war. One would think you would be morally obliged to express some kind of solidarity as he has been tortured and gang banged by the state. Or am I missing something here?

Manning is 5'1"/ 105 lb. He is a giant of a man for this timid, housebroken generation

Bradley Manning trial: US government to call 141 witnesses for prosecution
Sensitive witnesses to testify behind closed doors about harm to US from WikiLeaks as Manning denied right to present evidence

The US government is planning to call 141 witnesses to the trial of Bradley Manning, including 15 people who would testify that the information he passed to WikiLeaks caused harm to US national interests.

The gigantic scale of the prosecution plans were revealed during pre-trial legal argument over how sensitive secret information would be handled. The trial, scheduled to start on 3 June and pencilled in for 12 weeks, is the most prominent prosecution of the source of an official leak for at least a generation.

Ashden Fein, the leading prosecution counsel, told the court that four witnesses would be called whose testimony would have to be given anonymously and entirely behind closed doors, with only the judge, case lawyers and the accused present. One of the four would be "John Doe", the probable US Navy Seal involved in the killing of Osama bin Laden.

In addition, 33 witnesses would have sensitive or secret information to impart to the court, Fein said, and should therefore be heard partially in closed session. Fein said that the witnesses would discuss matters such as "injury and death to individuals" accruing from the WikiLeaks disclosures, and how "capability of the enemy increased in certain countries".

This Thursday, Feb. 28, from 9:30am in the courtroom at Ft. Meade, MD, Army Private First Class Bradley Manning will publicly explain his reasons for releasing classified information through WikiLeaks. This will be only the second time that Manning has testified in open court since his arrest, the first being at the Article 13 hearing in December 2012, when military Judge Lind ruled staff at the Quantico marine brig where Manning was held committed unlawful pretrial punishment.

Manning’s testimony this Thursday will speak to larger issues affecting his case as a whole, and expands upon a partially guilty plea proffering responsibility for releasing information with noble motive. Spectators in the courtroom earlier this week got a brief preview of Manning’s statement, which included reference to a pivotal incident in Iraq that caused Manning to question the military’s methods there, in addition to a general statement that he’d hoped releasing information would ‘spark a domestic debate on the role of our military and foreign policy in general.’ His testimony will consist partially of reading from a written statement, in addition to taking questions from the Judge.

This momentous week in court follows the largest worldwide day of activism supporting the WikiLeaks soldier thus far. On February 23, more than 70 cities demonstrated for Manning’s 1,000th day in prison, across the U.S. and on five continents altogether.

While transcripts from the proceedings are not made immediately public, the proceedings on Thursday are open for the public and journalists to attend. Contact us for more information about attending the proceedings, or if you wish to schedule an interview with a Support Network spokesperson.

The Bradley Manning Support Network is a 501(c)3 that funds 100% of PFC Manning's legal fees and educates the public about his case.

Bradley Manning is doing right by his country and trying to salvage what's left of America if that's even possible at this stage. He's a patriot to the original American ideals that existed before the experiment was infiltrated and corrupted by the cabal. In the next few years the information he released will seem like a drop in the ocean compared to what's going to come to light in relation to global finance and the military industrial complex.
