Human beings are social creatures. We are social not just in the trivial sense that we like company, and not just in the obvious sense that we each depend on others. We are social in a more elemental way: simply to exist as a normal human being requires interaction with other people. Children provide the clearest demonstration of this fact, although it was slow to be accepted.
A quick analysis of the present charges against Bradley Manning. I’m not a lawyer, but I can read statutes. Mentions here of WikiLeaks and the identification of the video as “ Collateral Murder ” are my own interpolations. 1 Depending on the application of 18 USC §1030(c)(2)(B)(ii-iii), each of these charges might carry a penalty of up to 1 year instead. In addition to the statues linked above, some information taken from the Military Judges’ Benchbook (PDF), Department of the Army Pamphlet 27-9. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>

PFC Bradley Manning, 22, of Potomac, Maryland, was stationed at Forward Operating Base Hammer, 40 miles east of Baghdad, where he was arrested nearly two weeks ago by the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division.
When online troublemaker Julian Assange co-founded Wikileaks, the net's premiere document-leaking site last year, some were skeptical that the service would produce anything of interest.
Bradley Edward Manning (born December 17, 1987) is a United States Army soldier who was arrested in May 2010 in Iraq on suspicion of having passed classified material to the website WikiLeaks . He was charged with a number of offenses, including communicating national defense information to an unauthorized source and aiding the enemy, a capital offense , though prosecutors said they would not seek the death penalty.

Adrian Lamo is a Colombian-American threat analyst and " grey hat " hacker . He first gained media attention for breaking into several high-profile computer networks, including those of The New York Times , Yahoo! , and Microsoft , culminating in his 2003 arrest. [ 3 ] In 2010, Lamo reported U.S. serviceman Bradley Manning to federal authorities, claiming that Manning had leaked hundreds of thousands of sensitive U.S. government documents to WikiLeaks .
NEW YORK -- Last January, Adrian Lamo awoke in the abandoned building near Philadelphia's Ben Franklin Bridge where he'd been squatting, went to a public computer with an Internet connection, and found a leak in the Excite@Home's supposedly airtight company network. Just another day in the life of a young man who may be the world's most famous homeless hacker.

“I will talk to you on camera under one condition: I won’t give you an address of where I live, and all driving directions must be over the phone, nothing can be written in a computer." These were Adrian Lamo’s words in response to my request for an interview. The 29-year-old Colombian-American ex-hacker gave alleged Wikileaks source Private Bradley Manning over to authorities. Ever since then he has become one of the most hated figures in cyberspace, receiving all types of threats, with “different degrees of credibility” according to him. I meet him in his small studio apartment. The place was a total mess, and he apologised - there were boxes and books on the floor, clothes, food and bottles of alcohol, a small scale (to weigh his pet leopard-gecko) and a poisonous type of cactus from Africa.
