Manning up


Gazette staff March 7th, 2012

This year’s Nobel Peace Prize nominations are in, and at least one native Oklahoman is on the list: Army Pfc. Bradley Manning.

You know the guy. In what’s considered one of the biggest classified information leaks in U.S. history, Manning is accused of sending thousands of classified military documents and information — including the so-called collateral murder video and thousands of diplomatic cables — to the website WikiLeaks.

Manning, who was arrested in Iraq in 2010 and is awaiting a military trial for the alleged leak, lived in Crescent as a child.

He has been praised by some for leaking the info, but heavily criticized by others, including a Nobel Peace Prize winner, President Barack Obama, who said Manning “broke the law.”

So, if Manning wins in October — admittedly a long shot — there will be a Nobel Peace Prize winner in charge of charging a Nobel Peace Prize winner for leaking classified information about unpopular wars and foreign affairs. Welcome to Bizzaro World.
