Michael Moore, the Oscar-winning filmmaker, will contribute $5,000 to help defend the Army private suspected of leaking classified documents to an Internet whistle-blower from serving time in prison.

A champion of liberal and left-wing causes, Moore told The Associated Press in a telephone interview he also hopes to make the public understand that Pfc. Bradley Manning exposed what Moore called "war crimes."

"He did a courageous thing and he did a patriotic thing," Moore said.

Manning, 22, faces up to 52 years in prison if convicted of downloading classified material and passing it to an unauthorized person while working as an intelligence analyst in Iraq.


Good for you Michael Moore, a truly great guy. I have seen most of his movies and they are excellent.

Yep. I like Michael Moore. He is a straight up common sense fellow. I have seen his films. I'm a fan.

Glad to see he is still active in current affairs.

Getting an endorsement from Michael Moore should add loads of credibility to wikileaks.

Michael Moore? You mean the big guy from the poorly made documentary movies. Only three more hours, sea people. Only three more hours and you can take me away from this terrible god for shaken planet full of hippies.

The wikileaks ppl have done something that Orwell referred to.


In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.


And for exposing yet even more lies from the puppets and puppeteers
who run our current plutocracy I applaud them.

This is like the hacker that exposed climate gate and the lying scientists.

The truth is a thorn in the side of their agendas, and as the past has
show their agendas are rarely good for the common ppl.

How can he call them patriots? The real patriots are the men and woman in combat fighting for his country. The freedom that he should be grateful for!

Am I supposed to be somehow offended by that picture?

Michael Moore is a great man, a little too Liberal for me, but overall a great man. If he was a little bit more Worker oriented he could be a true Democratic spokesman.

Wow! The end of the world must be near.


I finally agreed with Obama concerning something, and now I agree with Michael Moore!

And I can only bear to watch or listen to Michael Moore for a few minutes.

Maybe my high school friends are correct. They say I'm just a disgruntled disabled army vet who has lost his way and is becoming a flaming liberal loonie. As one of the guys said to me, "You have been reading too many newspapers, watching too much MSNBC, should stop watching Michael Moore movies, need to watch Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly. And besides, Muslims don't deserve religious freedom in the U.S. They are foreigners, for God's sake!"

Defense network computers. New... powerful... hooked into everything, trusted to run it all. They say it got smart, a new order of intelligence. Then it saw all people as a threat, not just the ones on the other side. Decided our fate in a microsecond: extermination.

Patriotic !


Please that is what is used to get all those young Americans a one way ticket battlefront. Besides does not patriotic means that you are proud and willing to fight for your country ? ( simplified )

I thought this Jullian Assange guy wa Australian ?

It would be bloody treason for him to be patriotic. To which country should it be directed ?

What he did is respectable and I applaud him and the people he made it possible with.

But... To be called patriotic by a fat guy ( Who has also deserved himself respect by the way ) who mainly contributes by consuming more food then he actually needs. And also makes a mistake on nationality.

Assange is a peace activist and his work benefits all. Not just the US.


@ Neutronavenger
 


Why bother fighting for freedom when it is also paving the way for freedom to be confiscated back home ?

People should think about the source that is continuously motivating more terrorist an insurgents to rise. Not just now, but also how it came this far in the first place. Removal of that source will be the start of a better future.

Edit: for striking out the complete part where I responded to something that was not said at all. Thanks to thov420 that informed me about my stupidity.

Sorry.

This is BS , if he wanted to help manning he only needs to ask his buddies Obama and Emanuel to let him go . Yeah that's right , watch the credits of any of his movies .You'll notice Ramm Emanuels brothers involvement . His pay cheques come from the White House .He is a propaganda agent , Hey Sicko = Obama's health care reform , I could go on and on .People need to see this for what it is .

Sicko was released in 2007. George Bush was president then. Why do you feel so angry at Obama for? Did he ever cause you any wrong? If not then why all the unnecessary angry. He is human like you and me.

lol umm, Michael Moore is referring to the army guy who leaked the docs to Wikileaks in the first place. And I think Moore is a good guy who makes some very eye-opening movies. I also agree $5k isn't much money to donate to that guys defense fund but every little bit helps i guess.
