As a long time member of the military I believe that you are not supposed to follow unlawful orders, just saying.

North was a loose cannon but he did it under orders.Manning did it because he is a idiot,what did he accomplish?What did he think he would get a Good Conduct Medal.

@ Itsnottolate....I was just going to comment on your post. It is right on target, and the truth. It is good to see that there are still some folks out there that can sort out the events of history and know good from evil and right from wrong.

This old Marine says Manning is a Hero with a capital H. Those responsible for the corruption within the military/government that he exposed should be the ones tried and jailed. This is the kind of soldier who will keep us free, not the ones like Oliver North who are criminals hiding behind a military uniform, and justify their criminal behavior under the guise of so called patriotism. Manning is a Hero and Patriot, North is a drug dealer and common criminal, get the two differences straight in your mind.

The lesson, air out the wrong dirty laundry and they will get you. Remember also, there are fusion centers out there that are full of people that sift through internet sites, blogs, social media, etc, looking for just this type of thing. The govt is worried because they continually restrict liberties and rights of people most recently in the name of terrorism and home grown terrorist. The people that are really guilty of betraying our country are easier to find, they are sitting in Washington, both parties, democrat and republican.
