Bradley Manning's court martial for the Wikileaks leak of military and diplomatic documents is taking place at Fort Meade, only about 30 miles from where I live in Baltimore. The trial is open to the public, and I've attended the trial on two and a half days over the past several weeks, including for the prosecution's closing arguments on Thursday, July 25. I wanted to observe what I think is a historic event in person, and also to show support for Manning, whom I consider a hero.
