SEGMENT #4 – The sentencing phase in the case of U.S. Army Private BRADLEY MANNING reached its climax this week when the 25-year-old whistleblower took the stand. Manning's unsworn statement was prefaced by testimony from family members and expert witnesses. The first of two reports comes from ALICE OLLSTEIN of "Free Speech Radio News" (with comments by Firedoglake reporter KEVIN GOSZTOLA); Manning himself spoke for only about three minutes, saying, "I'm sorry that my actions hurt people and I am sorry that I hurt the United States." He made reference to the fact that he was "dealing with a lot of issues" but said it was no excuse, and that he had not understood the "broader effects" of his actions. He asked the judge to let him have the opportunity to become a better person and eventually return to a productive place in society -- rather than spend all of the 90 years in prison he faces. While some called Manning's apology a reversal, independent journalist ALEXA O'BRIEN had a different view. She spoke with "Democracy Now!'s" NERMEEN SHAIKH and AMY GOODMAN (with brief intro music by THE BEATLES). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 10:55
