David Coombs, Bradley Manning's defense lawyer, gives an informative talk on who Bradley Manning is and why he finds himself in his present predicament. The classified documentation on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars released by Bradley Manning are now the most detailed record we have of any war in history. In particular his release of the 'Collateral Murder' video has revealed to the public in graphic detail what has remaines hidden in most modern wars: the killing of innocent civilians.

This is of significance to Ireland also as the decision to handover Shannon Airport to the war effort has shown. The Irish government's preference for good business contacts with the US Military over the protection of the innocent lives in Iraq has besmirched the name of Ireland. Bradley Manning shows us what humanity with a conscience looks like. The Irish government's continued cooperation with the US Military in Shannon Airport is a shameful picture of humanity without a conscience.
