    As much as this man disgusts me, only a judge should determine the punishment and sentence of a criminal.

    Horse****. Until doods lawyer brought it up Manning wasnt even a topic for discussion over breakfast. The US is treating him precisely correctly...like any other prisoner accused of misnhandling classified material then making suicidal comments while in custody. He wasnt news yesterday. He isnt news today. And when he is tried and if convicted he wont be news tomorrow.

    Manning is just practicing Democracy, and doing Anderson Cooper's job for him since him and all the scum at Fox are Dick Cheney's errand boys!

    Jesus H. Christ Kane just what the hell are you talking about. When you are a UNITED STATES SOLDIER, you sign a contract with the UNITED STATES ARMY and the DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE. You take an OATH to defend this country. Whether you believe that Private Manning did something disgusting, or that he did something heroic, is irrelevant. He breached the trust of his employers. He broke the rules, and he's a criminal. He violated his contract. Now he is suffering the consequences of his actions. Hell, even Daniel Ellsburg realized that he might be executed for his actions, and he still followed his conscience and fought for a purpose far less ambiguous than what Manning and Wikileaks have done.

    No, not even remotely. Stealing classified documents off US computers while on the job is espionage and a crime.

    He's right, it is stupid. Should be a quick trial, he's guilty, and hang him. End of story.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Most of the cables were not top secret clearance, so you think you're being a bit fascist?

    None of the cables whre cleared for public release, which makes his actions a crime. They ranged in classification from general to top secret, with iirc most being labeled secret. Releasing secret documents is a federal and military crime.
