Chelsea Manning

Chelsea Manning has attempted to commit suicide again, unfortunately. She is a brave person who should be granted clemency immediately, for her sacrifice in revealing the massive criminality of the Iraq War to the public. The U.S. government has tried to use her as a disincentive to other dissenters in the Obama administration’s war on whistleblowers, as the Obama administration has used the draconian and unconstitutional 1917 Espionage Act to pursue more whistleblowers that leaked to journalists than all previous presidential administrations combined.

This is a visit to Manning from a friend a few months ago, something not seen often in her restrictive prison life.
