The news plays differently outside US borders

You don't see many American stories that portray Bradley Manning as a hero. But just look outside our borders and it's a different story. Here's an excerpt from an article at Asia Times Online:
Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks' source inside the US Army, has done more to make Americans safer than the Navy SEAL unit that assassinated Osama bin Laden. As his trial proceeds to its foregone conclusion, the greatest threat to the United States is not terrorism but secrecy and the clueless foreign policy that Manning helped expose.
A bit different from what you read in the US, eh? Bradley Manning is a hero, whether Americans realize it or not. And that's truth, so help me dog.
