Bradley Manning Supporters Erect Billboard in DC

Bradley Manning, the gay soldier accused of handing over thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, is facing what could be the trial of the decade. But at least one group is on his side: The Bradley Manning Support Network has put up a billboard in downtown Washington, DC, asking for his release.

The sign, which reads, “Free Bradley Manning:  Blowing the whistle on war crimes is not a crime” is located at near 1240 New York Ave NE, on route to downtown Washington from Fort Meade, where the trial will take place. Similar bilboards have popped up in Kansas City, not far from Fort Leavenworth, where Manning was being held.
