Ira Harritt, KC Program Coordinator, spoke at the “Rally for Bradley” in support of Manning’s human and civil rights and status as whistleblower. Harritt spoke to the larger context of Manning imprisonment stating: "We, not the terrorists, not an enemy out there, have destroyed too much of what we value in America. It has long been recognized that the first casualty of war is the truth and this is being acted out on a daily basis. Too many lies, too many secrets and too much misinformation have been foisted upon the American public in the pursuit of war."

General Peter Chiarell,Vice Chief of Staff of the Army put is this way, " We are often
more dangerous to ourselves than the enemy.”
