Zoom Today in history: May 27, 2010 - Bradley Manning arrested in Iraq on suspicion of having passed classified material to WikiLeaks, including videos of the July 12, 2007 Baghdad airstrike and the 2009 Granai airstrike in Afghanistan; 250,000 United States diplomatic cables; and 500,000 army reports that came to be known as the Iraq War logs and Afghan War logs. It was the largest set of restricted documents ever leaked to the public, exposing imperialist crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world. 
As an intelligence analyst for the U.S. Army, Bradley Manning saw U.S. war crimes and took the courageous steps necessary to blow the whistle on human rights abuses. Manning was arrested and held in solitary confinement from July 2010 in the Marine Corps Brig, Quantico, Virginia, causing an international outcry. After much pressure, in April 2011 he was transferred to Fort Leavenworth. Already facing up to 20 years in prison, Manning still faces more severe legal charges including ‘aiding the enemy’, which could carry a life sentence; his trial on those charges is scheduled to begin in June.

    The saddest part about it all, is that a large part of this country think he’s a traitor who should be shot.
