  • An article on the London Review of Books discusses how the extradition case against Julian Assange would've been thrown out, were it being held in the 19th century.

On Bradley Manning:
  • Lt. Col. Paul Almanza has given his recommendation that all charges brought against Bradley Manning be referred to a general court martial.
