Part of Bradley Manning's defence is enshrined in the Nuremberg Tribunal trials, which tried NAZI leaders after WW2, but was dismissed by the Court. This makes his trial a travesty of justice. The Chief prosecutor at Nuremberg at the time insisted that the central crime committed by defendants and the source of all crimes was "the preparation and waging wars of aggression". Also obeying orders where clearly war crimes have been committed, as revealed by Manning during the Iraq war, 'shall not be a defence'. They are therefore the instigators planning the Iraq war on what we now know turned out to be pure fabrications ands lies who should be on trial and not Manning. This brave man felt he had the moral duty and courage to reveal what he had witnessed during his tour of duty in Iraq.
