Bradley Manning deserves Americans' support for military whistleblowing- Desmond Tutu- Guardian UK

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2012/nov/16/bradley-manning-americans-support

Excerpt:

Responsible governance requires fully informed citizens who can question their leadership. For those citizens worldwide who do not have direct, intimate knowledge of war, yet are still affected by rising international tensions and failing economies, WikiLeaks releases attributed to Bradley Manning have provided unparalleled access to important facts.

Revealing covert crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan and corporations' pervasive influence in governance, this window into the realities of modern international relations has changed the world for the better. While some of these documents may demonstrate how much work lies ahead in terms of securing international peace and justice, they also highlight the potential of the internet as a forum for citizens to participate more directly in civic discussion and creative government accountability projects.

2. Also reccing.

Desmond Tutu is a great man and his words carry weight.

It is a shame that some DUers would rather listen to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly on this issue.
