Bradley Manning

While not found guilty of “aiding the enemy”, Mr Manning has been found guilty of 19 of the 21 charges he faced. Expect this to be a huge beatup by the federal Government, in an attempt to intimidate whistle blowers into silence. The White House released a statement today regarding Mr Snowden, explicitly stating that he was not by definition a whistle blower, but a treasonous snitch. While he has been assured he will not face the death penalty (and God only knows there are plenty in the House that claim he deserves it. I wonder how many of those that claim this also have their election campaigns paid for by the defense industry?), he will be looking at a very long stretch, and Manning is looking at now, once sentencing has been passed. Manning’s sentence will be the litmus test.
