The government of any country is employed by that country. Please try to imagine that if you were employing me, you would be justified to want to know how I was conducting myself within that employment. This is called ‘transparency’, and this transparency is being withheld from the people of the US and all those citizens of planet earth who wish for themselves and for their children to have a safe future. A future safe from the fear of nuclear war and climate change. This is why we needed Chelsea Manning. The government of the US is deeply corrupt, and does not care about the well-being of the US or anyone else . Please, look at the bigger picture.
