Re: “An Oakland Man's Fight to Save Bradley Manning

Following World War II Nazi party members claimed that as Germans they were merely following German law when they murdered, enslaved, deported and persecuted other German Jews, communists, gay people and Roma during the war.

However the United Nations and Allied governments came up with a set of principles for determining what constitutes a war crime, The Nuremberg Principles. Principle 5 can be summed up as: "It is not an acceptable excuse to say 'I was just following my superior's orders.'" Principle 2 says: "The fact that internal law [i.e. American] does not impose a penalty for an act which constitutes a crime under international law does not relieve the person who committed the act from responsibility under international law."

Bradley Manning is a hero who refused to obey outrageous American law and stay silent about the war crimes of civilian murder, "wanton destruction ... not justified by military necessity," and "and other inhumane acts done against any civilian population" he observed.

WWJD? What should we all do? Free Bradley!
