Obama: "So people can have philosophical views [about Bradley Manning] but I can't conduct diplomacy on an open source [basis]... That's not how the world works.   And if you're in the military... And I have to abide by certain rules of classified information.   If I were to release material I weren't allowed to, I'd be breaking the law.   We're a nation of laws!   We don't let individuals make their own decisions about how the laws operate.   He broke the law. " [Emphasis added]

Q: "Didn't he release evidence of war crimes?"

Obama: "What he did was he dumped..."

Q: "Isn't that just the same thing as what Daniel Ellsberg did?"

Obama: "No it wasn't the same thing. Ellsberg's material wasn't classified in the same way."
