US Congressman Calls For the Execution of WikiLeaks Whistleblower Bradley Manning

3 Aug, 2010

“Hillary Clinton and several thousand diplomats around the world are going to have a heart attack when they wake up one morning and find an entire repository of classified foreign policy is available, in searchable format, to the public.”

This is what US army intelligence analyst Private Bradley Manning allegedly wrote to the former hacker Adrian Lamo who turned his name to the FBI where some raise  questions about the Wired Magazine hand and ethics in the soldier’s detention.

Manning is alleged of giving the whistleblower website wikileaks a classified video of American troops killing civilians in Baghdad. He is being held in in Virginia, USA after being transferred from his detention in a US army base in Kuwait.

Here is the video:



No one knows for sure if truly Manning did send the 260,000 pages to Wikileaks as the site Twitter account said it “is incorrect.” But the whole world knows now that Wikileaks posted an archive of almost 90,000 secret US military files on the war in Afghanistan.
However, US Republican Congressman Mike Rogers who sits on the House Intellginace Committee said yesterday he supports execution for the soldier Manning. He told US Radio WHMI that Private Bradley Manning appears to be guilty of treason in time of war, which is a capital crime. “He also criticized what he called a “culture of disclosure” for encouraging someone like Manning into thinking that the release of such sensitive information was a good thing.”

Rogers backed his opinion by saying that the leak led to the death many Afghans who “assisted” the United States Army and Intelligence.

On the other hand a website that was setup in support of Bradley Manaing has  the slogan of  ”Exposing war crimes is not a crime!”

While Wikileaks facebook page says it  primary interests  of leaking censored data “are oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to those in the west who wish to reveal unethical behavior in their own governments and corporations” the site which is founded by Julian Assange  says its  has “received over 1.2 million documents so far from dissident communities and anonymous sources.” Wikileaks has leaked recently a document about the US army planes to attack the site’s public trust, its credibility.

Do you think Manning deserves to be executed? or the public needs to know what is hidden?

    Private Bradley Manaing is not just a Hero to millions of Muslims killed by the US army but to all mankind by exposing the criminals in the US government. by exposing the amount of killing the US made in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Please donte for his campaign, to get him out please pray to God to help him, please pray to God that he converts to Islam so the good in his heart will send him to heaven.
