Bradley Manning has been charged with the greatest military leak in history. Many have condemned him from the get-go.
I was with Manning for 2 months in basic training in the RHC unit. I was his battle buddy 24/7 and spent a lot of time with Bradley. I saw how he was tormented, punished and terrorized by military brass in the RHC unit while waiting to be discharged.
