    Manning didn't access that information all by himself. I think they should hold his nuts to the fire and see how many of his accomplices he gives up.

    Why? Because Obama got it? Let's call a spade a spade. Just say it.

    nice race baiting.... hopefully such tactics work for you in the future.

    I lost respect for the prize long before Obama came around to win it.

    Obama is just the last undeserving soul to win, certainly not the first.

    The Nobel was a prize long before Obama got it. Hell! Yasser Arafat for the friggin' thing! It became a supreme joke when Le Duc Tho won it back in '73.

    So, no, it doesn't have anything to do with Obama.

    Again, why? And when did I bring up race? Did you just race bait yourself? Wow.

    Who would you have given it to instead that year?

    C'mon, you just like the holding of the nuts part.

    Thoughts?
    Comments?
    Response?
    While I don't buy into the whole "Wikileaks and Manning are villians" thing, I don't think either has earned any sort of "Peace Prize". If there was a "Transparency Prize", they could win that, but they haven't really helped the world become more peaceful.

    I think Manning should be locked away for treason as its clear and unquestionable his actions were.
    I think he leaked a video that shows US troops firing on people that pose no immenent threat. He exposed a warcrime and all who locked him away need to in turn, be locked away.
