WikiLeaks Finally Throws a Few Shekels Bradley Manning’s Way

With a $1.5 million book contract, WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange should have enough cash on hand to handle his legal bills. But what about those of alleged source Bradley Manning, to whom WikiLeaks promised $50,000 to defend him? And then, in December, a mere $20,000? As of now, the Bradley Manning Support Network has received $15,100 from the group, which, at least publicly, it is acting thankful for. That brings BMSN’s total to about $100k, or $12,500 for every month he’s been locked up without being charged with a crime.
