STARR FORUM: The Passion of Chelsea Manning (Chase Madar, Noam Chomsky)

Starr Forum: The Passion of Chelsea Manning: The Story behind the Wikileaks

October 09, 2013 5:00p–6:30p

The astonishing leaks attributed to Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning are viewed from many angles, from Tunisia to Guantanamo Bay, from Foggy Bottom to Baghdad to small-town Oklahoma. Around the world, the eloquent alleged act of one young soldier forces citizens to ask themselves if they have the right to know what their government is doing.
