Last night I discussed a variety of whistleblower issues currently in the news:
Over the weekend, I attended a TRUTHCON event presented by the Bradley Manning Support Network and the Georgetown Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild. (Go here to support Bradley Manning now). In the coming weeks Manning's attorneys are set to argue Manning's motion to dismiss the charges based on a failure to provide Manning with a speedy trial and a motion to dismiss the charges based on unlawful pre-trial punishment, specifically allegations of Manning's torture.
