This morning, a leaked audio recording of Bradley Manning's testimony was published by the Freedom of the Press Foundation. The co-founder of the organization is Daniel Ellsberg, the military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers to nineteen papers including The New York Times, and it should be little surprise that he's staunchly in defense of Manning's acts. "I can think of no one more deserving who is deserving of the [Nobel] peace prize," Ellsberg writes. He explains at Boing Boing why he believes that Manning's actions were right.
