Private : Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks, and the Biggest Exposure of Official Secrets in American History
The man at the epicenter of the WikiLeaks controversy
Providing insight into Bradley Manning's background, this biography paints a nuanced portrait that disputes his depiction in the mainstream media. As the alleged source to WikiLeaks for the biggest breach of military security in American history, Bradley Manning has been inaccurately described as a combative outcast, a bullied and embittered homosexual, and a loser grasping for notoriety; however, this exploration into his past depicts a young man haunted by demons and driven by hope, forced into an ethically fraught situation by a dysfunctional military bureaucracy. The Manning this book uncovers is impulsive and cocky, yet idealistic enough to follow his conscience. In leaking a vast collection of American secrets, he thought he was doing the right thing. His story is one of global significance, and yet he remains an enigma. Now, for the first time, the full truth will be told about a man who, at the age of only 22, changed the world.
