Bradley Manning To Be Sentenced Today

This morning at 10 o'clock in Ft. Meade, military Judge Denise Lind is scheduled to pronounce her sentence on Bradley Manning. I'll be there. So will lots of other Manning supporters. I don't have high hopes.

The prosecution is asking for 60 years. Even the defense is asking for 25 years. In our Kafkaesque world, that's considered lenient.

The story is on the front page of the UK newspaper the Guardian. As for the New York Times? Of course not. You have to dig to even find mention of it anywhere.

But we live in the Land of the Free. Yeah. Right.
