Bradley Manning should have been Time's 2010 person of the year.

The intelligence analyst has been detained by the U.S military since May of 2010 and has spent the last 5 months at the U.S Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Virginia.

He has been denied the right to exercise, held in solitary confinement for 23 hours of the day, and his mental and physical health have been deteriorating because of this abuse.

Bradley Manning is a homosexual and reportedly felt isolated under the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

Manning is the real hero in this whole Wikileaks scandal. He sacrificed his entire life to expose the criminal acts of the United States Military.

Bradley Manning is an American hero and should be respected as one.
