  •  The difficulty is that there are two cases. (5+ / 0-)

    One is that he is obviously guilty.

    I suspect that this is the actual case.

    The other case is that he is being railroaded.

    At this time he is offering a claim of innocence on the worst charges though he has admitted guilt on minor charges.

    I'm willing at this time to see the difference split.

    •  He's "obviously guilty" because someone (3+ / 0-)

      at Wired has chat logs and they claim Manning was one of the participants?

      I'm not sure you know what "obviously" means.

      "the Agency continues to verify the non-diversion of declared material at these facilities and LOFs."

      •  I read more into aoeu's comment than that (1+ / 0-)

        Specifically, I read up to (and then past) where aoeu says "I suspect that is the actual case."  

        This implies to me that Manning's guilt isn't "obvious" to aoeu, but aeou suspects it may be obvious to whomever is investigating, and that's why Manning is where he is.

        Also, aoeu only listed the "obvious" guilt as one possibility, with the other being "he is being railroaded."

        Can't speak for aoeu, though -- but that was my take on it.  

    •   we need some more "obviously guilty" (1+ / 0-)

      people to start exposing war crimes, but what is missing is talk about prosecuting the people committing those exposed war crimes.
