Bradley Manning: "The Gay Defense"

The American magazine The Week gives a round-up of the (poor) media coverage of Bradley Manning's legal team's unexpected decision to use "a gay defense" - after many of his supporters had argued his sexuality was irrelevant to the case.
My favourite "think" piece in the insanely offensive stakes is Homosexuals Support Gay Soldier In Treason Trial from Far Right Side News.
Subtext: Ya can't trust dem fags.
If you want to cut through the distortion, Kevon Gosztola at has been live blogging from the hearing since it began.

PS The Passion Of Bradley Manning by Chase Madar will be published in February.

  1. This line of defence if extremely worrying, isn't it?
    Can't see how effective it's going to be.
    Still, continue to hope, be positive and campaign...
