[haw-info] HAW Notes 8/2/13: Bradley Manning; links to recent articles of interest

To members and friends of Historians Against the War,

Below are some sources of updates and other information on the Bradley Manning case, now in its sentencing phase.  They are followed by our occasional set of links to recent on-line articles of interest.

-- the frequently updated website of the Bradley Manning Support Network;
-- an annotated "List of whistleblowers" from 1966 to the present, on Wikepedia;
-- press releases from the Center for Constitutional Rights and Amnesty International;
-- the "Collateral Murder" video originally leaded by Private Manning.

Thanks to Jerise Fogel, James Swarts, Rusti Eisenberg, and Rosalyn Baxandall for leads to the above sources.
