WikiLeaks delivers contribution to Bradley Manning defence fund


www.guardian.co.uk

WikiLeaks' slow response in coming to the financial aid of its alleged source, who now faces up to 52 years in prison for having passed information to the website, has long been a cause of frustration for his supporters, although they have been hesitant to go public.

In the past the Bradley Manning Support Network has indicated that WikiLeaks had promised to pay up to $50,000 in legal fees, although that offer was reduced to $20,000 in December and the payment ended up being $15,000.

Wikileaks has finally come through with their promise, albeit with less than promised.

Alot of Wikileaks detractors have used this arguement to discredit them, however it has now come to fruition. It makes sense that they are struggling financially, especially with the seized funds, and the book deal Assange seemed less than enthusiastic to write.

The credit card company misunderstanding is about to come to an end, by which point I'm positive Wikileaks will more than deliver on what they promised.

Edit: It might be worth mentioning that Wikileaks have never claimed to know who was behind the leak. Officially, Julian heard the name Bradley Manning for the first time when it was reported on the news. Then again, it might not be worth mentioning.
