Bradley Manning: Profile in Courage Above and Beyond the Call of Duty


Uncommon courage.

by Stephen Lendman

He's one of America's best. He risked great personal harm. He did so to expose vital truths. 

He's a true American hero. He deserves praise, not prosecution. In February 2012, Movement of the Icelandic Parliament (MIP) members nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize. 

They felt compelled to recognize his important contribution to world peace. They called nominating him a "great honor." They're indebted for what he did.

He deserves Washington's Presidential Medal of Freedom.

It's awarded "for especially meritorious contributions to (1) the security or national interests of the United States, or (2) world peace, or (3) cultural or other significant public or private endeavors."

War criminals often get it. Peacemakers are spurned. 

British MP George Galloway said Manning should "be getting a Nobel Prize instead of being tortured, and what is the British government doing about this torture of the Welshman, Bradley Manning?" 

"What they're doing is intriguing and plotting with the Swedish government and the US government to send Julian Assange to join him on the torture tables and in solitary confinement for the next 50 years." 

"And we call ourselves the land of the free."

Paul Craig Roberts called Manning "a window into the American soul." It reveals "total evil. The US government constitutes Satan's Chosen People. Nothing else can be said for those who rule and oppress us."

Manning's a latter day Daniel Ellsberg. "I was Bradley Manning of my day," he said. "I too faced life in prison for exposing classified government lies and crimes."
