Haywire

The spy who loved me ... and kicked my ass.


Action

Rod Lott
Can Steven Soderbergh do a martial arts-fueled action thriller? That was rhetorical in a bear-crap way; the guy can do anything. Best known for Traffic and the Ocean's Eleven franchise, he's a director par excellence, even when the story goes to snuff in his experimental larks, like casting porn star Sasha Grey as the lead in 2009’s no-budget drama The Girlfriend Experience.

Cracking the code

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


News

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.

Irony Man


CFN

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.
