    She'll be freed on May 17th.

    It's good news: she didn't deserve to be in prison, and hopefully it'll show the way to go to the next democratic nominees.

    Can you pardon someone who didn't have the balls to stand trial and accept their punishment in a court of law?

    That should have read "didn't". They haven't been convicted of anything yet. Personally I'd prefer they spend the rest of their lives in hiding with the thought of "I could be taken" as the turn every corner.

    Why is it good to release people who expose and leak military secrets?

    Manning doesn't have the balls anymore either.

    Well, Assange never retreived info, he just published it.
    Exactly as the New York Times did during the Iraqi war Wikileaks report, when the NYT published exactly what Wikileaks published. So, is the NYT going to trial?

    Does this mean that Wiki-Leaks is back on the approved list?
