It’s time to stop the war on whistle-blowers.
Bradley’s actions have helped motivate democratic movements around the world, including the Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street.

As of yet, the Obama administration and the military court have failed to produce any evidence whatsoever that Bradley’s leaks put the lives of service members of government officials at risk.
After his arrest Bradley suffered nearly a year of solitary confinement, resulting in protests by the UN, the ACLU, and Amnesty International.
