"If Bradley Manning had committed war crimes, not exposed them, he would be a free man today." - Marjorie Cohn
Saturday, December 17, 2011 - San Diego, CA - Activists marched and held a rally in support of the release of "Wikileaker" Bradley Manning on his 24th birthday.
Professor of Law Marjorie Cohn addressed the crowd at Civic Center Plaza. She explained the charges and possible life sentence Bradley faces, the impartiality of the judge and limiting of witnesses for the defense. She also discusses the treatment & torture of Bradley Manning in solitary confinement, U.S. war crimes exposed by the leaks, and Obama's public pronouncement of guilt.
"By exposing some of the worst atrocities committed by the U.S. Forces in Iraq, the documents prevented the Iraqi Government from agreeing to give our soldiers immunity, which is what Obama wanted, to continue the war rather than end the war, and therefore... If Bradley Manning is guilty of what he is accused of, he is also guilty of helping to end the Iraq War." - Marjorie Cohn
