According to the Bradley Manning Support Network, Brad now faces the death penalty for “aiding and abetting the enemy,” and we all must wonder what fucking enemy they're referring to. Read the list of charges added on March 1, 2011: Bradley Manning Facing Death Penalty Under New Charge of “Aiding the Enemy”
The US Army Criminal Investigation Command (USACIDC) has added 22 additional counts in the Manning case. They claim that prosecutors do not intend to recommend the death penalty, but I do not buy it for a NY minute. These people want Brad Manning dead. Even his fellow service members want him dead. At least 50% of Americans have such an unreal level of ignorance that they also want him dead. At the very least, they will accept life in a United States Supermax prison – the prison of all prisons with no contact with the outside world ever.
And what enemy did he allegedly aid IF he is the Wikileaks leaker? No crap here – I read through many of the released documents and they weren't all that important. Can they actually do this because there is a feeling of embarrassment over their fake War on Terror? I am afraid that the answer is yes, they do whatever the hell they want. If you voted for Bush in 2000 or in 2004, you have succeeded in assisting these war happy, money-grubbing kooks ruin this country beyond any possibility of repair.
There is little left to say except if you have not donated to Bradley Manning's defense fund, please do so when possible. If you have donated, please appeal to your colleagues and friends. Don't desert this guy as his fellow soldiers have. The only good place to donate is through the Bradley Manning Support Network – you will see the big DONATE button on the website.
