MI Rep. Mike Rogers Wants Bradley Manning Dead (If Guilty Of Leaking)

Rep. Mike Rogers, the Michigan Republican who sits on the House Intelligence Committee, wants Bradley Manning, the queer Army private, executed if found guilty of leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks. (He also doesn’t like the idea of anyone thinking leaking such files has any positive benefit.) “We know for a fact that people will likely be killed because of this information being disclosed,” he told radio station WHMI. “That’s pretty serious. If they don’t charge him with treason, they ought to charge him with murder. I argue the death penalty clearly should be considered here,” he said. “He clearly aided the enemy to what may result in the death of U.S. soldiers . . . If that is not a capital offense, I don’t know what is.”
