Manning Up, Online and in the Rain

Away from courtroom--see my live-blog today--NYT's Eric Schmitt's reviews Bradley Manning's support network. Also looks at Saturday rally and Ellsberg etc. speaking on Sunday.  "More than 20,000 supporters have contributed over $1.25 million dollars to his legal fund, according to the group’s Web site. Dozens of them, holding placards defending Private Manning, stood in the rain at Fort Meade’s main entrance on Monday."
“If you think of previous Espionage Act cases, it is quite uncommon for a defendant to have a community of support,” said Steven Aftergood, a government secrecy specialist with the Federation of American Scientists.
