    So you found one thing that counterbalances all the negative to convince you he's not a traitor.

    I have no idea if he is truly a traitor or not because I have no idea the full spectrum of what he did. The military is in full control of his situation. For all I know he is a scape goat for greater processes. Or perhaps he's an inside man and this was all a ploy to sell more info to others that we really know about and hes not even actually locked up. I have no way to truly know one way or another. But I do know about that 1 video...

    He was broke before also. Thier website went down a couple of times before they released anything about the US due to lack of money.
    An estimated net worth of 1.3 mil is hardly broke.

    And yet in the two years since this happened there is still no proof that anyone was killed due to the leaks. Surely in two years they could have dug up a name by now and killed that person.
    Who says they didn't? Out of 750,000 classified military documents, you're telling me that none of it aids the enemy in any way?

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    No sir, he betrayed his GOVERNMENT'S secrets.

    This country and its government are two separate entities. Indeed, the country existed first, if you will, and by way of the founding document CREATED the government so that Justice might be established, a more perfect union formed, and the common defence might be improved.

    And as Ike predicted in 1961, the government is way out of control.

    He exposed the crimes--murder--of his government, just as Daniel Ellsberg revealed the crimes of the government.

    Manning was motivated by conscience--the ability to know right from wrong--and for that he should be commended.

    But instead the vengeful government kept him in torturous conditions in violation of still more laws, including the UCMJ.

    Yeh. Lots o' these Republican pseudo-patriots, especially. Draft evaders, champagne soldiers, too valuable for war. But and it's a but that would do the circus fat lady a favor. We are discussing starting wars and killing lots of people for business. Energy, military contracts, intelligence, transportation, etc. and the argument is that we should find another way to make a living. Just because we like war doesn't make it right, nor is it what we want to leave our children. That's my opinion.

    Re: Assange Speaks to UN

    And we're talking starting wars and killing lots of people for national interest. So you can enjoy the life you enjoy. Is providing for your children right?

    Right and wrong are just subjective, let's not get hung up and what our personal moral beliefs are.

    It's whatever you want it to be, I guess.
