Wikileaks Suspect Bradley Manning Nominated For Nobel Prize

By

The Oklahoma Center for Conscience and Peace Research (OCCPR) announced that it has nominated U.S. Army Private First Class Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier accused of passing secret materials to Wikileaks, for the Nobel Peace Prize, OEN reported.

In its nomination, OCCPR stated that it chose Bradley Manning because of his alleged role in leaking documents and other evidence of war crimes, corruption and lies related to the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, including the notorious “collateral murder” video (downloadable online at http://www.opednews.com/populum/www.collateralmurder.org) which U.S. forces firing on unarmed Iraqi civilians, members of the press and children.

“Bradley Manning should have received full whistle-blower protections for his actions but instead has served 19 months in prison without a trial, including 10 months spent in solitary confinement,” said James M. Branum, OCCPR Legal Director.

“We understand that PFC Manning will be placed on a military show-trial, where his guilt will be determined by a “jury’ hand-picked by the very command that is accusing him. We have no doubt that, absent international pressure, PFC Manning will be found guilty and sentenced to life in prison or possibly even given the death penalty, without a hint of justice applied in his case. We have made this nomination in the hopes that it might lead to renewed attention and concern given to his plight.”

    BLESS YOU ALL!
    We must all defend Bradley- this young man has already served a pre-trial draconian sentence. Torture, solitary confinement already served should be enough of a sentence -IF he is even “guilty” of this heroic deed.
    Thank you for your nomination.

    So sad that a young man who did the right thing for the benefit of all of us is being persecuted simply because our present government does not have the common sense to correct its own mistakes and therefore continues to try to deny citizens the truth about its war-making . FREE BRADLEY MANNING.
