Bradley Manning Verdict Gets The NMA TreatmentBy: Zach Walton - July 31, 2013
Bradley Manning, the whistleblower arrested for handing over classified Army documents to WikiLeaks, was found not guilty of aiding the enemy. He was, however, found guilty of pretty much everything else. While we wait for the sentencing to begin, let’s take a look at what our favorite Taiwanese animators have to say about it.
Unsurprisingly, NMA is spot on with its satirical analysis. The press can breathe a sigh of relief about Manning being found not guilty of aiding the enemy, but being found guilty of espionage will definitely make some investigative journalists and their sources more wary. They’re probably worried that Obama will shove a whistle up their ass.
In all seriousness, the Manning verdict does set some pretty worrisome precedents. It gives Edward Snowden an even better reason to avoid the U.S. and settle down in Russia.
