Perpetrators of War Crimes Should be Imprisoned, Not Manning

Voice of Russia | July 31, 2013

WASHINGTON (VOR) – The trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning is not over yet, but the army private has been convicted of 19 charges that could lead to more than 130 years in prison. Despite his charges, he was acquitted of the most serious charge of aiding and abetting the enemy.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky talked with Debra Sweet, director of The World Can't Wait, to discuss the case and its implications.
