Bradley Manning is an LGBT person imprisoned for allegedly leaking the trove of U.S. diplomatic communications published by Wikileaks.

Despite vehement protests by Secretary of State Clinton and others that the leaks “threatened lives,” not a single case of injury or death has been linked to the disclosures.
