From Navy Times, here:
Three Nobel Peace Prize winners say a U.S. Army private being court-martialed for allegedly sending classified information to the secret-busting website Wiki[shhhh] deserves gratitude, not persecution.
The letter signed by Desmond Tutu, Mairead Maguire and Adolfo Perez Esquivel appears in the Dec. 3 issue of The Nation magazine.
They say Pfc. Bradley Manning is a courageous whistleblower whose alleged actions revealed covert crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Much like LCDR Diaz’s prize, here, he’s got that going for him.
