Army whistleblower Bradley Manning was acquitted of ‘Aiding the enemy,’ on July 30, 2013, while convicted of 20 other charges. On August 4 Cornel West was joined by former NYT correspondent Chris Hedges and members of the Bradley Manning Support Network for a discussion of the threat to whistleblowers and government transparency posed by Bradley Manning’s trial. Visit www.bradleymanning.org for more information. The event took place at the Friends Meeting of Washington D.C.
Next week at Ft. Meade the defense team will call twenty-four witnesses to the stand for incredible testimony regarding Bradley’s exceptional character. If you can make it to the trial, this is a great time to attend. There should be very little, if any, classified testimony. We can expect to see about three witnesses testifying per day.
