Michigan congressman call for death penalty for Bradley Manning…


8/2/10 – Following news that an Army private was accused with leaking thousands of pages of intelligence documents related to the war in Afghanistan, Congressman Mike Rogers says he supports execution for the soldier involved if he is ultimately found guilty. The Brighton Republican sits on the House Intelligence Committee and told WHMI that Private Bradley Manning appears to be guilty of treason in time of war, which is a capital crime. He also criticized what he called a “culture of disclosure” for encouraging someone like Manning into thinking that the release of such sensitive information was a good thing. Rogers says that in contrast, he thinks it has surely condemned to death many Afghans who assisted the United States. Manning is currently being held in solitary confinement in Virginia where he may face a court martial or federal prosecution as the investigation continues.
