We petition the Obama Administration to:
Horrendous acts related to the Iraq War have damaged America. In comparison, this young man Manning supported our very American views of civilization.
We are a democracy. We cannot skip responsibility.
Our most barbaric crimes remain broadly unpunished. We killed 24 children and unarmed civilians at Haditha. We ran Abu Ghraib’s torture chambers. We rushed into that war and had no idea what was happening.
Bradley Manning’s theft of the Crazy Horse One-Eight video led to ending this American ignorance. Formal “Rules of Engagement” cannot replace moral commitment.
Bradley Manning changed America. We are stronger.
Prosecution now has Manning at risk of his life, charged with Aiding The Enemy. Please, a full pardon. Then, as well, please support Manning for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize.
