WikiLeaks' Julian Assange and Bradley Manning: Hearts Together to Save the World - Yahoo! NewsManning's strongest supporters are on the far left, with avowedly Marxist organizations like Internationalist. But the notion that the U.S. military should function like a gateway to worldwide group therapy has considerable cachet among America's mainstream establishment liberals. Blind to the larger harm, Manning's supporters focus on small truths, trumpeting wide-of-the-mark paens to free speech and constitutional rights. It's all rather dull-witted, but for the anti-war liberals who carry water for the Assange-Manning-WikiLeaks cause, it is dogma.
