Nice.  A peacenik group has nominated Brianna Bradley Manning for the Nobel Peace Prize.  Nevermind that he might have put other soldier's live's at risk.  He's a hero.  Roll Eyes

Quote
An Oklahoma anti-war group says the Army private accused of leaking classified material to Wikileaks should receive the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Oklahoma Center for Conscience and Peace Research says it nominated Pfc. Bradley Manning for the prize. The group says Manning — who is a native of Crescent — should receive full whistleblower protections for his actions. The group says the information Manning leaked exposed what it calls war crimes in Iraq.
Military prosecutors say Manning gave Wikileaks sensitive battlefield reports and diplomatic cables. Defense lawyers say Manning was a troubled soldier who shouldn't have had access to classified material.
Manning faces a general court-martial on 22 counts, including aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence. He's set to be arraigned Feb. 23.

I don't think okie peaceniks are on the Nobel nomination committee.  The real nominations are private (I think).

We've been there:  http://www.tulsanow.org/forum/index.php?topic=16715.msg213243#msg213243


David Lapan, deputy assistant secretary of defense for media operations, told NBC News on Monday that a review by a Pentagon “assessment” team has not identified any documents whose release could damage national security. Moreover, he said, none of the documents reviewed so far carries a classification level above “secret” — the lowest category of intelligence material in terms of sensitivity.

"Senior ranking U.S. military leaders have so distorted the truth when communicating with the U.S. Congress and American people in regards to conditions on the ground in Afghanistan that the truth has become unrecognizable. This deception has damaged America’s credibility among both our allies and enemies, severely limiting our ability to reach a political solution to the war in Afghanistan."

Having an expired tube of toothpaste is “improper medicine use” in a "correctional institution."

How petty.

Apparently seven years of prison for exposing war crimes was enough.
