Manning's bravery

I was disappointed to read the Post-Gazette editorial supporting the harsh punishment of Bradley Manning ("Sensible Sentence: A Military Judge Is Fair to a Troubled Soldier," Aug. 23). The "crime" for which he was convicted was providing the American public with important facts about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, facts the government wanted to hide. One would have thought that the editors of a newspaper would approve of informing the public.

If the people learn only what the government wants them to know, there can be no true democracy. The future of our democracy depends on brave whistle-blowers like Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden.
