Army whistleblower deserves fair trial


Ellsberg says the information Manning leaked also “revealed governmental and corporate corruption and collusion’’ and “contributed to the ending of the Iraq War and to positive people-power movements’’ in the Middle East and North Africa.

Unfortunately, the government is not likely to drop any charges against Manning, let alone free him. Even President Barack Obama, who signed the Whistleblower Protection Act last year, has said that Manning is guilty as charged long before his so-called “fair trial’’ was scheduled to start.
