By Kathy Kelly, published 31/5/2013

Basir believes that the vast majority of Afghans are among myriads world-wide who have Manning to thank for information they will need in struggles for freedom, security, and peace.

I just don't agree with any of this.
This bloke broke the law just as the occasional graffiti artist does.
Albeit in both cases, the offenders will act as if entirely within their rights.
Bradley Manning through his actions put the real lives of real people at very real risk, and further escalated the conflict.
He knew full-well he was operating outside his country's laws, even as he broke them.
And therefore, there are consequences!
Yes there are drones attacking known activists, who are at war with the US and most of the west.
The west has a right to defend itself.
At least the drones target specific individuals, who can no longer kill maim and destroy with impunity, whereas the UID'S of the activists, target as many innocent non-combatant civilians as possible.
Interestingly, Pakistan is now developing tactical nuclear weapons, some of it in artillery shells and others in land mines.
And these are the people who expect the world to believe they have some kind of moral superiority, instead of a madman's murderous rage, that allows its more radical elements to attack all and sundry!
Exampled by a Muslim miscreant boarding a bus and shooting a school girl, simply because she had the courage to speak her own mind and or, put appropriate labels on those who make war on entirely innocent women and children.
If this marvellous freedom espoused by Basir, does not also include completely liberated women and girls, then it is just words and dogma, designed to radicalise and deliberately mislead!

Rhosty, you need to get a grip. Manning didn't hurt anyone, the US has though.

ARE you so pathetic really that you think sending out actual facts is more dangerous than allowing the world to live like mushrooms being fed bull........... in the dark?

I am ever surprised by the cowardice of the little people in this country.

Marilyn Shepherd,
If it falls into the hands of the likes of you, most definitely yes.

Bradley Manning leaked the video of a drone killing innocent journalists. The war on Iraq was an illegal invasion.

Bradley Manning is one brave young individual who blew the whistle on a corrupt Govt. We need more like him.

Bradley Manning merits a Nobel Peace Prize. Bush and Obama and US Justice Department lawyers merit a place in the dock at The Hague for committing and concealing crimes and hounding whistleblowers. Right and wrong donít have a nationality or a government licence.
