My Russia Today television debate with CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin on the subject "Bradley Manning, hero or traitor?"
I was called by Russia Today television yesterday afternoon and asked if I would like to debate with CodePink co-founder Medea Benjamin on the topic of the Berkeley, California vote next week to elevate Pfc. Bradley Manning to the status of hero.
They had found me through an article that I had written titled "Berkeley seeks hero status for suspected Wikileaks traitor." The article clearly expressed my disgust for Berkeley in its attempt to elevate the status of a traitor to anything but traitor.
Russia Today is not a pro-American outlet and Medea Benjamin and CodePink are about as far left as a human can be. Never the less, for my first time doing this I hope that I got my point across (I am on Skype and not in studio).
