Bradley Manning (right)
Elizabeth Goitein of Liberty and National Security Program stated of the sentencing, "It's more than 17 times the next longest sentence ever served. The Judiciary Report agrees, the sentence is excessive. Manning's actions were not done for profit, but out of concern regarding the government breaking the law. Ironically, he goes to prison, while select members of government who violated the U.S. Code, Constitution and U.N. law, go free. That is not justice.
