The Forgotten Man   Leave a comment

Second only to Julian Assange, Bradley Manning is the most important figure in the Wikileaks controversy; his is alleged to have handed over hundreds of thousands of secret US war files and diplomatic cables.
But, while the world watches Assange’s trial with bated breath, Manning is already wasting away in solitary confinement; this is the story of his daring intelligence heist.
We hear the only recording of Bradley Manning’s voice and we listen to the logs of alleged conversations with the man who ultimately betrayed him.
It’s a case that has all the hallmarks of a spy thriller. Bradley Manning was a U.S. soldier serving in Iraq, when he allegedly downloaded classified files onto a disk storing Lady Gaga songs. It’s alleged he then confided what he’d done to a computer hacker. A short time later the authorities arrested Manning and he’s been in a military jail ever since.
