Letter: Real criminals rigged game against Manning

Real criminals rigged game against Manning

Look in the mirror at what we have become. Are we like the Nazis in Germany in 1942? Are we like the Soviets in 1950? Pfc. Bradley Manning reported war crimes, which clearly indicated U.S. criminality, according to three articles of the Geneva Conventions.

According to Nuremberg principles laid down by the United States, Manning was required to report war crimes. Yet the judge will not allow these legal precedents to be used in the trial. This is a “show trial.” We all know what the outcome will be. The real criminals have rigged the game.
