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.
