Would you have done what Bradley Manning did?

Finally After 3 years the trial of the accused whistle blower Bradley Manning begins. It is not overall a good thing because Manning should be praised and given a medal for his courage and not sentenced to prison. I think this trail is absolutely ridiculous, a complete waste of time. How can people continue to pursue his persecution, I mean, just look at the information he released. Everyone on this planet needs to know what the American military does. Especially because it has at least seven hundred foreign military bases around the world. America has its fingers and whole arm( up-to the shoulders) in everything.

For those of you who do not know Bradley Manning was an intelligence analyst in the American military. He in 2010 released millions of important documents to Wikileaks some included information about how top officials lied and mislead Americans into war. There was also the controversial video of an American Fighter helicopter, “Crazy Horse one-eight,” killing about 12 civilians including two Reuters News Agency  staff members; the video is called, “Collateral Murder.” If you want more on Bradley manning go here: the Bradley Manning Support Website.

Today is Mumia Abu-Jamal’s birthday he is turning 59 years old; Happy Birthday Mumia. Mumia is a political prisoner since 1982, he was sentenced to death row for the killing of Philadelphia police department officer named Daniel Faulkner; Mumia denies the accusation.”I never confessed to anything because I had nothing to confess to. I never said I shot the policeman. I did not shoot the policeman. I never said I hoped he died. I would never say something like that,” quote from Mumia. Mumia since his incarceration has had popular support from all over the world. A big turning point in Mumia’s life came forth, as recently as January 27, 2012, the day Mumia was allowed to join the general population after 29 years in death row.
