What: Rally in Support of Whistleblower Bradley Manning
When: Sunday, August 8, noon
Where: Quantico Marine Corps Base where Manning is being held in pre-trial confinement; we will meet at the Amtrak station in Quantico (see interactive map below)
Private First Class Bradley Manning, a 22-year-old intelligence analyst stationed in Iraq, stands accused of disclosing a classified video depicting American troops in Iraq shooting civilians from an Apache helicopter in 2007. Eleven people were killed, including two Reuters employees, and two children were critically injured. No charges have been filed against the soldiers who did the killing.
News sources have also speculated about Manning’s involvement in the leak of over 90,000 secret documents (collectively known as the Afghanistan “war logs”) made public by WikiLeaks on July 25.
In this "blog" they say that "no charges have been filed against the soldiers who did the killing" refering to the civilians being killed by the Apache helicopter in 2007. I don't think the helicopter pilots should be charged, because they were just trying to do their job.

Julian Assange reminds me of our founding fathers, serious rebels... WITH A CAUSE!
I have to hear my family say, "We should bomb Iceland if they don't hand them over" "We should hang this traitor in public" "We should send in assassins to Iceland to kill Julian Assange". And they all harass me when I say the guy is a hero in the cause for freedom and peace.
