Pot calling kettle black: US officials ‘leak’ more than Manning?


Leaking classified data to Wikileaks saw Private Bradley Manning charged with 22 counts including capital offence. Following the spirit of the law, what should be done to Obama administration officials who expose military secrets to Hollywood?

­24-year-old former intelligence analyst Bradley Manning is charged with 22 crimes, including communicating national defense information to an unauthorized source and aiding the enemy, which is a capital offence under American law. The next hearing in his case is due to start in Fort Meade on Wednesday.

The Obama administration has waged an unprecedented war on whistleblowers, prosecuting more of them under espionage laws than all previous administrations combined.

This WHOLE issue is about high Government officials selling a whole lot more top secret info to foreign countries. And why would they do it? For the money, of course. Manning is being persecuted as a scapegoat and more, to take the peoples' focus off what Government has been doing, like, forever.
