Bradley Manning is a 24-year-old Army intelligence analyst accused of leaking a video showing the killing of civilians, including two Reuters journalists, by a US Apache helicopter crew in Iraq. He is also charged with sharing the documents known as the Afghan War Diary, the Iraq War Logs, and embarrassing US diplomatic cables, with the anti-secrecy, free information website WikiLeaks. The video and documents have exposed issues involving the true number and cause of civilian casualties in Iraq, human rights abuses by U.S.-funded private contractors and foreign militaries, and the role that spying and bribes play in international diplomacy.

Although Bradley has not been given due process, Bradley has been unjustly imprisoned for almost two years. He was held in solitary confinement for the first 10 months of his incarceration. During this time he was denied meaningful exercise, social interaction, sunlight, and has occasionally been kept completely naked. These conditions were unique to Bradley and are illegal even under US military law as they amount to extreme pretrial punishment.

Over 300 top legal scholars declared Bradley’s conditions of detention a violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment and the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee against punishment without trial.

Not a single person has been harmed by the information released. Despite the minimal impact of Manning's courageous whistle-blowing, he faces over 20 charges, including “Aiding the enemy by indirect means,” for which a conviction could result in the death penalty or life in prison.
“Is this embarrassing? Yes. Is this awkward? Yes. Consequences for U.S. foreign policy? I think fairly modest.” - Robert Gates, Unites States Secretary of Defense

Manning was one of 241 candidates listed for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011, and was nominated again in 2012 by the Oklahoma Center for Conscience and Peace Research and three members of the Icelandic parliament.

“God knows what happens now. Hopefully worldwide discussion, debates, and reforms… I want people to see the truth… because without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public.“
