    “Invading and occupying a country that had not attacked you (starting a war of choice). That is punishable under the U.N. convention, my friend…”.Waterboarding was considered torture when the Japanese, etal, did it. When the Bush Administration gave the OK, it wasn’t torture any more, but “enhanced interrogation.” .Imprisonment without due process became “legal”!.That whole bunch should be thrown in prison.

    Sorry, but having signed “loyalty oaths” for several positions, and swearing allegiance to the Constitution (not an administration of military leadership of the day) I DO recognize and admire some “whistle blowers”, but the revelation of secret military or “defense” information IS treason. Now, had it been declassified information, or even outdated as with the “Pentagon Papers” about the START of the Viet Nam war, that also would be different.

    What this ’toon does point to is the fact that Manning was certainly at best “divided” on his loyalties, and mental state, which should have been considered in his sentencing perhaps, but not his guilt. NOTE: the most serious charges dealing with his INTENT, were dropped by the court.

    Darren: pretty obvious neither Manning, nor Snowdon, should ever have had security clearances!

    " Would that justify the action?".That depends on perspective. Certainly, Lee Harvey Oswald thought he was justified. (“Legal” is not the same.)

    Bradley is very lucky that he had a lenient judge.
