    Bradley Manning hearing: court told of Iraq unit's intelligence security chaos | World news | guardian.co.uk

    I said that when Manning was arrested and I believe his local chain of command should be on trial as well.

    Completely agree with your comment that the chain of command should be questioned as well WG.

    Whilst I agree selective info should be kept "secret", some of what was eventually leaked was...well, I hoped the US military would be more responsible than attempting a cover up ala some of the black ops that occurred during the cold war.

    I think he is simply being made a convenient scapegoat for the whole affair...

    As an american... what do you think of wikileaks WG? A knight in shining armour or just a man with his own agenda?

    Atkins was a Master Sergeant and Manning's supervisor.

    Assange is both. :) AFAIK the Wiki leaks were entirely diplomatic cables, and strictly speaking should not compromised if classified. But the information revealed has been no more that embarrassing and not a national security threat. I could be mistaken.

    Officer testifies on access to secrets – USATODAY.com

    Manning's clearance level did not enable him to view a wide range of classified material. He would have had a NEED TO KNOW. If Captain Fulton was quoted accurately, then her entire organization was out of compliance. It is another indicator that Manning should not be the only one on trial.

    Manning case signals US vulnerability to 'insider' cyberattack

    I am thinking today that Manning (and Assange) may have done little more than embarrassing the State Department, but the Army must make an example of him.

    Army general orders court-martial of US soldier Pfc. Bradley Manning in WikiLeaks case - The Washington Post
    The man was not properly supervised. Life in prison seems too harsh.

    There is support for Wikeleeks in India, i think julian was even prepared to flee to India if they took him to court on the rape case. Thats why he was saying India was a good country to stay. lol..

    It is a court-martial. The President is C-in-C so he could pardon Manning, I suppose.
