Bradley Manning News:
  • Former New York Times executive editor Bill Keller wrote an op-ed describing what may have happened had Bradley Manning leaked to the New York Times instead of WikiLeaks, something which PFC Manning said he attempted to do so in his plea statement. Mr Keller immediately drew criticism for comments he made.
    • The Nation's Greg Mitchell commented on how Mr Keller blamed PFC Manning for not getting his call through to NYT, as well as his false portrayal of PFC Manning's stated motives for leaking.
    • Firedoglake's Kevin Gosztola commented on how Mr Keller said that PFC Manning's motives in the chatlogs with Adrian Lamo were different from his plea statement, when actually they were nearly identical.
    • Nathan Fuller of the Bradley Manning Support Network wrote on Mr Keller's mischaracterization of PFC Manning. He also posted excerpts from an email conversation he had with Mr Keller.
    • Jesselyn Radack of the Government Accountability Project said Mr Keller paints WikIleaks as a military enemy using phrases such as "internet insurgents" and "antisecrecy guerillas".
  • Bradley Manning's defense has been given permission to publish a redacted version of his plea statement. The only redactions are names and can be found in a pastebin from @AnonyOps, taken from Alexa O'Brien's transcript of the statement.
  • Attorney John W. Whitehead wrote on how the war against Bradley Manning is a war against all who speak out against injustice.
