Whistleblower Blues

Imagine you were a whistleblower. When you went to court, you discovered the judge, the prosecutor and the jury and their bosses were all people you had outed as criminals. You would not expect much of a fair trial. This is roughly what happened to Bradley/Chelsea Manning who has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for exposing widespread criminal activity. The government claims the law demands Manning look the other way. The Nuremberg principles of international law say he is personally responsible. Just following orders is no excuse for letting crimes pass. Thankfully Obama pardoned Chelsea after 8 years.
