In the Wikileaks scandal Julian Assange became the hero of the world. However the source of that ‘’leak’’ is the US Army Sargent Bradley Manning(22 years old). And now he is in jail. But there’s a debate in the world now: is this ethical or not? has he betrayed his country or has he done the right thing?
In my opinion he did the right thing and the goverment did the wrong thing by arresting him. Everybody has right to know the truth. With that knowledge in the documents, people can know whether they are safe or not. Govermenthas charged Bradley Manning for 52 years. Why? Because he has out-done the censored media? FoxNews.com published an article about the Sargent saying that he mailed Assange a video. The video shows an Apache helicopter killing 12 people including 2 journalists.Nobody would have known that but Manning madethe people know what happened to these 12 people. This video explains everything about media cencorship, shows how media can be led like a herd when not given the real inside story; and can, just the opposite, enlighten people about the reasons for what’s going on.
With a light conscience, I can say that Mannşng did the right thing and he is not a traitor. Fortunately some people think he is even a hero. For example a CNN journalist, Bob Meola. He said that Manning should get a medal because of his actions!
