Anyone read the information that got leaked?
The diplomatic cables were super interesting. Embarrassing, but they showed that our diplomats are doing their jobs and doing them well. He caused problems with our allies, but there was some benefit in seeing that our people are indeed quite competent at sizing up who they're dealing with.
The war logs and video showed that the American People were being lied to about the course of the wars. The release of actual names was bad though. That should have been redacted before Manning or anyone else released it.
Manning did some damage, but I feel overall, it's exaggerated. He did violate this oath though.
Snowden I feel is going to do more damage. Way more damage.
