Bradley Manning's Christmas Message
We've been reporting extensively here at Alternet about Pvt. Bradley Manning, the accused leaker of videos showing brutal U.S. Army misdeeds who has been truly horrifyingly incarcerated in torture-like conditions. Through his lawyer, Raw Story reports that he released a Christmas Eve message to supporters:
"I greatly appreciate everyone’s support and well wishes during this time. I'm also thankful for everything that has been done to aid in my defense. I ask that everyone takes the time to remember those who are separated from their loved ones at this time due to deployment and important missions."Specifically, I am thinking of those that I deployed with and have not seen for the last seven months, and of the staff here at the Quantico Confinement Facility who will be spending their Christmas without their family."
