Socialist Worker | Persecuted by the national security state

This morning on SocialistWorker:

AFTER MORE than a year and a half behind bars, Bradley Manning, the 23-year-old U.S. soldier accused of leaking classified information to the muckraking website WikiLeaks, will face a court date on December 16 in Fort Meade, Md. The Article 32 hearing is the military equivalent of a grand jury hearing, where a military judge will determine if there is enough evidence to proceed with a court-martial.

I don’t have much hope that Manning will be treated impartially, given the hysteria around the entire WikiLeaks incident; reports of his having been tortured psychologically bode for a very public kangaroo trial, I think.
