My letter to the man who now has the power to reduce Bradley’s sentence: Major General Buchanan,
The persecution of Bradley Manning, who honored his duty by reporting war crimes, is a dishonor to the U.S. military and government. The abuse he has suffered in prison is a crime, prohibited both by Geneva Convention and the U.S. Constitution.
The most significant crimes in this case were perpetrated by the U.S. military and the U.S. government. I am outraged and shamed by the violations of our constitution, international treaty and the abuse of the rights of U.S. citizens. Our country and the U.S military must be held to higher standards than this!
Please reduce Bradley Manning’s sentence to time served.
Thank you, Linda Boyd
