Jeff Paterson discusses the progress of Bradley Manning’s pretrial hearing; the military judge’s ruling that the defense can’t present evidence showing Manning didn’t hurt US national security; holding the government accountable for Manning’s tortuous detention in the Quantico brig; and the prosecution’s trumped-up “aiding the enemy” charge against Manning for leaking information to the press about government misdeeds.

Jeff Paterson, Project Director of Courage to Resist, discusses whistleblower Bradley Manning’s December 16th court hearing, his first after a year and a half long pretrial detention; Manning’s lawyer’s complaints about the government’s refusal to disclose evidence; the life-sentence facing Manning for allegedly leaking information embarrassing – but not harmful – to the government and military; how Manning’s treatment at the Quantico Marine brig clearly violated the UCMJ; and how you can donate to Manning’s legal defense and/or participate in a demonstration supporting him at Fort Meade on December 16th and 17th.

Jeff Paterson, Project Director of Courage to Resist, discusses the work being done by the Bradley Manning Support Network, Ehren Watada‘s successful war refusal based on the Iraq War’s illegality (and the Pentagon’s fear of bad press), pending Canadian legislation that would force the government to accept American Iraq War resisters and how the Pentagon repeatedly deploys soldiers who are physically or mentally damaged and unfit to fight.
