Is it treason to defend the principles upon which your government was supposedly founded?

As the trial begins for Wikileaks source private Bradley Manning, Laugh to Not Cry asks why in a free and democratic society we persecute the truth tellers and the not war criminals. Why do we ignore murderous pink elephant in the room and instead focus on how it got in?

Manning, like hacktivist Jeremy Hammond who exposed how private corporations are hired to spy on ordinary citizens, might be criminals or they just might be the heroes of our times. For they are trying to tell us that it isn't they who are endangering American lives but rather--from the military to the private sector--a very harmful status quo.
