America honors its worst. It persecutes its best. Manning is heroic. He risked great personal harm. He did so to reveal vital truths. Washington has no right to conceal them. People have a right to know.
Secrecy, lawlessness, and contempt for humanity define US policy. Evidence vital to Manning’s defense is prohibited. Information refuting charges of “aiding the enemy” is barred from trial proceedings.
Claiming it’s not relevant or harmful to national security doesn’t wash. Excluding it reflects police state justice.
