Crikey says: don’t forget Manning still rots in jail

The ADF has a plan for the mental health of our soldiers -- but we had to ask for it. Why Christopher Pyne is wrong on education funding. Now Marcia Langton is taking on academic peers. The anti-abortion bill in Parliament we don't actually need. And inside Clive Palmer's still-sinkable Titanic.

By any contemporary western standards of justice, the treatment by the US government of alleged WikiLeaks whistleblower Bradley Manning has been outrageous.

    Yes, a bloody disgrace and an eloquent warning.

    A prime example of how justice works in the world’s ‘greatest’ democracy.

    Any statements the US government makes about Assange will be laden with deceit and their usual paranoia. With friends like these…

    The treatment of Manning is abhorrent, however the majority of Americans would believe that he betrayed their country. Their opinion is based on the ranting of a right wing press (lead by the dirty digger), xenophobia and moral judgement to condemn anything perceived to be anti USA.
    But are they wrong? Most people would judge any action that had the potential to place the lives of their sons and daughters at risk as traitorous. In the same circumstances, so would Australia.
