Cracking the code

How did Bradley Manning go from small-town Oklahoman to WikiLeakes’ most notorious contributor and alleged traitor?


Ben Fenwick
In the Logan County town of Crescent, some 30 miles north of Oklahoma City, Mark Radford was mowing his lawn when federal agents from the State Department and the U.S. Army showed up at his door. They asked Radford about a local kid he used to know, Bradley Manning.

Profile of courage

Letters to the Editor

Jackie Schmid
I greatly appreciate Bradley Manning’s courage and efforts to shed light on U.S. government actions (News, “Cracking the code,” Ben Fenwick, June 26, Oklahoma Gazette). Despite his challenging childhood, I believe he was sincerely motivated to bring about positive change for us and the rest of the world.

Irony Man


Gazette staff
It was a “good news, bad news” sort of verdict for Bradley Manning, the former U.S. Army private convicted of multiple charges stemming from his release of 700,000 classified documents to WikiLeaks. While the Crescent native was acquitted of the most serious charge of “aiding the enemy,” a military judge still found him guilty of 20 charges that potentially could mean more than 130 years in prison. Still, an “aiding the enemy” conviction could have meant life in prison, so he’s got that going for him.
