11. He provided video footage

of a helicopter gunship slaughtering people on the ground who were clearly NOT combatants. That is a war crime.

The files disclosed operations in Iraq that could also be construed as war crimes, child prostitution services provided to military contractors, the death of Canadian soldiers by US fire that was blamed on the Taliban, the cavalier disregard for civilian casualties (definitely war crimes), and the shell games the US was playing with prisoners who were tortured in "black prison sites".

Also, we learned that Pakistan, a country we were pouring billions of dollars into, was completely in bed with the Taliban and were providing them with military intelligence about US Military operations.

The Guantanamo files proved that the U.S. KNEW most of the people kept there were not terrorists.

The sum of what he revealed had it been revealed about any other country except the US, would have led to a new round of war crimes trials for all involved. Manning would have been a hero, not a "spy".
