After more than three years in military confinement, Wikileaks whistleblower, Private Bradley Manning is finally due to go on trial in June. A criminal to the US military but hero to many, the 25 year old has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize three years in a row. He now faces court-martial for the largest security breach in US history.
We will discuss the issues raised by this case. Two years on, what have the WikiLeaks disclosures really told us about journalism, diplomacy and warfare? And what are the ramifications of the legal case itself?
Panel discussion With Chase Madar (US Attorney and author of The Passion of Bradley Manning)
Ben Griffin ( Former SAS soldier. Spokesperson for Veterans for Peace UK)
Andy worthington (Historian, investigative journalist and author of The Guantanamo Files.)
HOSTED BY JOLYON RUBINSTEIN (BBC’s The Revolution Will be Televised)
