    Bradley Manning nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    Bradley Manning nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

    Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army private accused of leaking information to WikiLeaks, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by the group The Movement of the Icelandic Parliament.

    Manning is faced with charges that include aiding the enemy, wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on the Internet, theft of public property or records, transmitting defense information and fraud and related activity in connection with computers, CNN reported. Manning could face life in prison if convicted of these charges.

    Despite his long list of charges, the parliamentary group The Movement of the Icelandic Parliament submitted a letter to the Nobel Peace Prize committee for the 2012 prize for his “individual effort to have an impact for peace in our world,” the letter stated.

    Yeah. Manning's contribution to "peace in this world" was to steal a bunch of classified documents and send it to that weasel Assuange, so people in the Middle East could see how their own governments have been behaving behind their backs, who then rioted across the Middle East whereupon tens of thousands were killed.

    This is almost as bright as nominating a guy who'd only been in office for a week... Obama. The Nobel Peace Prize is officially a sick joke.

    I've not seen where what he released ever made a hill of beans of difference to world peace. It's pretty much, mach ado about nothing. Some embarrassing personal correspondence.

    Seems that this organization is opting to be the world's biggest joke.

    It is more than a joke. The Nobel has always been a liberal shill of an organization it's just now they are out in the open about it....

    And people complained that Obama was a bad choice for the peace prize(and he was a bad choice). He is looking pretty good compared to this nomination.

    The only redeming thing about it now seems to be the concert they have the week of, and the occasional group of people who actually deserve to get it.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
