Wikileakes and Manning revealed atrocities and murder by US governments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Iraq is in a terrible situation as a result. Recently a Khmer Rouge leader from Cambodia has been indicted for similar atrocities in that country. Pol Pot has gone down in history as a genocidal maniac. Why not the US government officials who gave Iraq similar treatment with shock and awe? Some will claim the extent of the carnage and motivation is different. How so?
As a result Assange and Manning has been prosecuted along with whistle blower, Edward Snowden, and journalist, Glenn Greenwald.
