When Did Telling The Truth Become a Crime?

This video is about Bradley Manning. The embedded video shows a group of unarmed civilians being slaughtered by U.S. aerial forces. About twelve of them. US forces even shot the rescuers.

The original story here. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/apr/05/wikileaks-us-army-iraq-attack

So Manning leaked the truth about this slaughter to Wikileaks (after the Army lied about it) and kept a copy of this video. He faces life in prison. The vid is about 5 mins. I first saw it here: http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2013/03/19/providence-an-incredible-5-minute-film-by-laura-poitras/

The worst part about this? Manning is just a kid. I'm not even sure that morally- he did anything wrong- and now he faces life in prison. The original story. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/apr/05/wikileaks-us-army-iraq-attack

It's the same bullshit up and down the entire system. If your caught with an ounce of cocain you are going away for avery long time. Launder billions & billion of drug cartel money and pay a fine as punnishment. Our system, no make that our entire world is friggen twisted !

I know. Manning is just a fucking kid. He was 23 when he sent his info to wikileaks

The crazy thing here is that the liars and people covering this up- not to mention the actual shooters- face nothing in terms of punishment. The only fucker in trouble is the guy who exposed it.

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?
