I am Private Manning

Because I believe the public deserves the truth and whistleblowers deserve a fair trial.

My name is Selman and I am a philosophy student from Istanbul, Turkey.
I read the story of Bradley and it hurt me so much. He is only one year younger than me and I felt like it is my brother who is in prison and facing with death penalty.
I believe not being silent in the face of cruelty is a virtue. A virtue that most people do not have. A virtue that I suspect I myself do not have. What Bradley did takes a conscientious heart and lots of courage. It is an honorable act. It should not be punished but rewarded.
