Chelsea Manning.

Congratulations to Chelsea Manning, released from prison today after her sentence was commuted by outgoing President Obama.

Chelsea Manning released a large number of State Department cables to Wikileaks which exposed some of the things that had been going on around the world from the war in Iraq onwards.

Manning had access to all kinds of secrets as a result of her job but she ensured that only material with the lower levels of secrecy were released. All the same, she was sentenced to 35 years imprisonment for what she did.

Among the things she revealed was film of US air attacks on civilians and journalists in Iraq.

A person of great courage.
