Bradley Manninig is a 23 year old Army Intelligence analyst facing decades in jail for allegedly sharing a video of a U.S. helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and wounded 2 children in Baghdad Iraq with the WikiLeaks website.
The U.S. Army covered up the evidence and declared the war crime "justified". Now they claim that exposing the massacre is criminal.
Ciaron O'Reilly stated,
"The last place Bradley Manning was NOT in jail or in a war zone was Ireland!
Bradley was shipped through Shannon Airport, Ireland to the invasion, occupation and looting of Iraq.
We are responsible for him. It is not enough for us to slap him on the back, sell him some duty free and send him to hell.
We need to bring Bradley back to Ireland, grant him Irish citizenship and sanctuary!"
