  1. The case regarding former CIA officer John C Kiriakou seems especially excessive as well. I hope people come to his aid too.

  2. Sergeant First Class, U.S. Army says:

    I will try to approach this topic carefully, Manning upon enlisting in the Army swore to obey the orders of the officers appointed over him, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. If he does not follow the orders he is willfully violating Article 90 of the UCMJ. He violated orders by accessing then transmitting unauthorized information through non-secure means to unauthorized people. This is a valid charge. If he felt the video or files contained a criminal activity taking place then the Army has avenues to report it. And the system DOES work. He has no right or authority to release information pertaining to military maneuvers or missions to ANY outside agents. He committed a crime and will be tried in military court and it is not up to civilians to question or second-guess the legal process he swore to abide by. His actions could have cost service members their lives and I could have been one of his victims. The level of classification has little to do with the case. He doesn’t get to pick and choose what is going to be released. He was an entry level Private.
