    "exposing over 700,000 data files without reviewing them is egregious"

    People keep saying this like it means something.  Manning is just one guy, which is why he went to responsible organizations to actually vet the documents before releasing them.  First he went to the mainstream press like the New York Times and the Washington Post.  After they ignored him, he went to Wikileaks, who did review and redact the files.

    And Manning was revealing war crimes.  Where's the prosecution of Dick Cheney for leaking Valerie Plame's covert status "indiscriminately"?  And Manning leaked files classified Secret.  Where are the indictments of high level officials from the Obama Administration and New York Times staff for publication of Top Secret information?
