The Passion of Bradley Manning

by Chase Madar - £8.99  Verso Books (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781781680698 | ISBN 10: 1781680698

The gripping story of Private Bradley Manning, the soldier who is alleged to have leaked nearly half a million classified documents.
 
Bradley Manning was arrested, imprisoned in solitary confinement for nine months, and court-martialed for leaking nearly half a million classified government documents, including the infamous “Collateral Murder” gunsight video. He was an intelligence analyst in the US Army’s 10th Mountain Division, is twenty-four, and comes from Crescent, Oklahoma.
 
But who is Private First Class Bradley Manning? Why did he commit the largest security breach in American history — and why was it so easy? In this book, the astonishing leaks attributed to Bradley Manning are viewed from many angles, from Tunisia to Guantánamo Bay, from Foggy Bottom to Baghdad to small-town Oklahoma. Around the world, the eloquent act of one young man obliges citizens to ask themselves if they have the right to know what their government is doing.
