Bradley Manning’s statements during his guilty plea prove that he is hero who truly deserves the Nobel Peace prize, Icelandic MP Birgitta Jonsdottir told RT, stressing that the mainstream media cannot afford to ignore his case.

Birgitta Jonsdottir nominated Manning for a Nobel Peace prize after he shed light on a long history of “corruption, war crimes, and imperialism by the United States in its international dealings.”

She also helped with producing the notorious Collateral Damage video that Manning admitted to have leaked, even though it was not classified.

In an interview with RT Jonsdottir pointed out that WikiLeaks, the whistleblowing website, was the only media outlet willing to take the files Manning had in his possession, for which he is now being prosecuted. In his guilty plea Manning revealed that he had approached mainstream corporate press outlets like The New York Times and the Washington Post with materials of “enormous value to the American public” – but they ignored his submissions.
