Video - "The Sentencing Of Chelsea Manning"

Alexa O'Brien was one of the few journalists properly to cover the Court Martial of Chelsea (ne้ Bradley) Manning. She kept very extensive and detailed reportage under near-impossible conditions, not only of the open sessions but by piecing together what was dealt with in the innumerable secret sessions.

Here she interviews Manning's lead counsel David Coombs about the shenanigans behind the scenes, the dubious processes which went on, and the prospects for appeals against sentence and for a pardon from Obama.

The interview is an hour long, but worth it to get inside the story in a way which the corporate media totally failed to address.
