This week’s Sprouts is a discussion with Chase Madar, author of the new book “The Passion of Bradley Manning: The Story of the Suspect Behind the Largest Security Breach in U.S. History.” Speaking with Madar is David Swanson, host of the weekly program Talk Nation Radio, produced in Charllottesville, Va. Madar discusses the voluminous information that Manning is accused of providing to Wikileaks and to us, and some of the startling insights it gives us into what our supposedly representative government has been up to. The show also looks at the official and public responses to Manning, his mistreatment, his legal status, and the fate of whistleblowers under the Obama administration.
