Not happy about Bradley Manning verdict. Of course, he wasn't guilty of aiding the enemy. They overcharge & get 19 convictions anyway.

 

@kgosztola are u still outside the media room? Can we interview u now?

 

Manning could face life in prison even though govt. never proved he harmed anybody! #FreeBradleyManning

 

My Nation piece on Manning verdict, more updates and reaction to come. And Democracy Now feed there. http://bit.ly/18La8Av 

 

Relieved that he was acquitted of aiding the enemy, and totally outraged that Bradley Manning was convicted of Espionage.

 

Manning sentence on Tuesday should be -- time served. He's already served enough time and been abused enough. #FreeBradleyManning

 

#BradleyManning found guilty of theft & espionage for exposing war crimes. Trial verdict a travesty of justice. #ThankBradley @SaveBradley

 

Convictions on Espionage Act are absurd. It rewards maniacal Obama admin. overcharging. Who did he do espionage for -- the American people?

 

Bradley #Manning: Found guilty for exposing war crimes. Denied public interest defence. Trial verdict a travesty of justice. @SaveBradley

 

@cenkuygur They want to kill national defence journalism so they're using Bradley Manning as a message to not cross them, it's sickening

 

@cenkuygur It took almost 3 years for his trial, during his detainment it was tortured. Where's the justice? #FreeManning.

 

@cenkuygur They knew they wouldnt get aiding the enemy, so they overloaded on other charges to get the sentence they wanted. #BradleyManning

 

@cenkuygur "Will you pardon Bradley Manning as soon as you take oath of office?" should be a litmus test for 2016 presidential race.

.@cenkuygur After seeing what the Obama admin did to #BradleyManning I'd like to hold a moment of silence to wish #EdwardSnowden godspeed.

 

@cenkuygur Manning's sentencing will become the standard for future heroes. It's so sick. Manning is a hero for god's sake.

 

@cenkuygur The danger behind all these verdicts is that soon we'll have less Bradley Manning's and more George Zimmerman's.

 

@cenkuygur Exposing war crimes is not a crime.

 

@cenkuygur Of course he should be released! He revealed war crimes. Those people should be on trial not him. #FreeBradleyManning

Quick question: How many years did the guy who killed the journalists and citizens in the Apache helicopter video released by Manning get?

@ggreenwald @jeremyscahill I basically agree, but will say this: Jodi Arias had *cameras in the courtroom*, which is no small thing.

 

 

@ggreenwald @jeremyscahill Arias got orders of magnitude more coverage than Whitey Bulger for same reason.

 

@chrislhayes @ggreenwald we filed a lawsuit to challenge the secrecy and closed nature of the trial. We fought months. MSNBC didn't join us

 

@jeremyscahill @ggreenwald good point.

 

@chrislhayes @jeremyscahill I think grievance if usually more about what doesn't get covered than what does - latter is proxy to complain

 

@chrislhayes @ggreenwald if cable news was serious in covering Manning case, they would have challenged the absurd secrecy surrounding trial

 

What's weird about lack of Manning media coverage isn't just that it's newsworthy but prosecution theories affect all journalists & sources

Reminder: what we learned from Bradley Manning http://bit.ly/1cbITTC 

 

Prosecutors did not want #Manning to have access to the original damage assessments to be used at his own trial http://www.alexaobrien.com/secondsight/wikileaks/bradley_manning/us_v_pfc_manning_three_classfied_damage_assessments_to_be_used_in_sentencing_phase.html …

 

My piece last month w/ partial list of vital info Bradley Manning revealed via his leaks: http://bit.ly/11yqXZ4 

 

Bradley Manning is free. It is the US government that is in prison. It cannot see Freedom for what it must be.

 

Why won't the well-fed media lead their Bradley Manning coverage with the Collateral Murder video that he released? He revealed a war crime.

 

Support Bradley Manning, http://www.bradleymanning.org/ .

 

I tried to write something on Bradley Manning but found myself between too angry words and too sad sentences.

 

European parliamentarians call for release of Manning, http://www.bradleymanning.org/featured/european-parliamentarians-call-on-president-obama-to-free-bradley-manning …. Would like to see some US lawmakers join them. Barbara Lee?

 

Manning down. Now Assange, then Snowden. Imperium has a large appetite.

 

Whatever verdict is handed down by a military judge, Bradley Manning is an inspiring, courageous hero. History will vindicate him.

 

@OwenJones84 History has already vindicated him.

 

Did @chrislhayes really just say that Manning should get 20 years as a deterrent? Deterrent to what? Really?

I already knew that, because our real enemies are the NSA, and the lying scum in the State and Defense Departments... 2/4

 

Our enemy is Bank of America and its home foreclosure operation. 3/4

 

Our enemies are those who arrested Bradley Manning to punish the release of the truth. 4/4

 

@chrislhayes needs to read this essay by @elliot_sperber, http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/06/12/bradley-manning-and-adolf-eichmann/ …. @DougHenwood.

 

I hope Manning knows how @carwinb, @nathanfuller and @kgosztola have dedicated themselves to telling the story of his trial and tribulation.

Here's the CNN debate I did tonight on @AC360 with @JeffreyToobin over the Manning verdict http://www.mediaite.com/tv/greenwald-tears-into-toobin-over-manning-snowden-youre-calling-for-end-of-investigative-journalism/ …

 

Wow the enemy must be pissed about not getting aided, especially after we ditched the freedoms he hated us for.

I was on CNN International discussing the Bradley #Manning verdict w @HalaGorani on #Amanpour: http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/30/investigative-journalist-on-manning-verdict/ …

 

Given that no enemy got aided, who was the espionaging for? It was for *US! RT if you'd prefer more espionage and less CNN.

 

NYTimes wants #BradleyManning to get a "moderate sentence." Is NYTimes volunteering to share a cell?

 

NYT editorial on Manning verdict--they call for only "moderate" sentence. http://bit.ly/158fiYg 

 

Ex-NYTimes editor > Snowden/Manning cases contain message to leakers: "we will track you down and smack you down"> http://nyti.ms/17ffr86 

 

If you are a father please pledge with me now to support your kids better than Manning's or Snowden's fathers. WTF?

 

NYT editorial calls for moderate sentence for Manning and for gov't to "do something about its addiction to secrecy" http://www.nytimes.com/2013/07/31/opinion/a-mixed-verdict-on-manning.html?src=twr …

Obama charges 8 whistleblowers with espionage: Drake, Kim, Hitselberger, Leibowitz, Kiriakou, Sterling, Snowden and of course Manning.

 

Ralph Nader coined the term "whistleblower" in the 1970s, or so I hear.

 

I was on Radio New Zealand earlier today discussing #Manning Verdict (AUDIO) http://podcast.radionz.co.nz/ntn/ntn-20130731-0918-the_bradley_manning_verdict-048.mp3 …

 

The best part of this debate between @ggreenwald and @JeffreyToobin is watching the disgust on Greenwald's face. http://www.mediaite.com/tv/greenwald-tears-into-toobin-over-manning-snowden-youre-calling-for-end-of-investigative-journalism/ …

Good point: Those critical of Snowden/Manning disclosures are never critical of leaks of goverment-glorifying info http://www.mediaite.com/tv/greenwald-tears-into-toobin-over-manning-snowden-youre-calling-for-end-of-investigative-journalism/ …

 

@carwinb @bmaz @kgosztola I would raise multiplicity again ... if gov't smart wouldn't oppose (no upside to creating more appellate issues).

 

@carwinb @kgosztola Yeah, but I think that is diff issue for pre-trial charging mots and sentencing purposes. Least that's case in reg court

 

Pure bloviating punditry on #BradleyManning by @JeffreyToobin. Also incorrectly says released 700,000 cables http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KfOjHpa2lcw …

Susan Collins just referenced the "jury" in the #Manning trial. I wonder if before now she gave it even a moment of her valuable time.

Wow, now Benkler on Charlie Rose re: Manning.

Benkler: Manning's guilty pleas, which might have led to 10 to 20 yrs in prison, were enough, not right for gov't to go for life.
