Bradley Manning trial: Leakers Julian Assange and Daniel Ellsberg weigh in

• Christian Science Monitor

Yet Manning, rather than someone interested in aiding America’s enemies, is a patriot responsible for “without a doubt the most influential leak in history,” Mr. Assange argues.

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki cited documents given by Manning to WikiLeaks in his decision not to renew a Status of Forces Agreement with the US military, which in turn led to the formal end of the Iraq War, Assange noted.

According to Amnesty International, the leaks were one of the leading factors in triggering protests that led to the Arab Spring, he added.
