Bradley Manning Nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize

While I don't put much stock in the Peace Prize, I take my hat off again to Iceland Parliament member Birgitta Jónsdóttir. According to RT, The Movement of Icelandic Parliament (of which Ms.  Jónsdóttir is a memer) nominated Bradley Manning - whose actions “have helped to fuel a worldwide discussion about America’s overseas engagements, civilian war casualties, imperialistic manipulations, and rules of engagement.” There's a more detailed piece at the International Business Times

The story of Iceland and Birgitta Jónsdóttir and what she did to get her country out of the trouble it was in is inspirational. It seems fitting, to me at least, that such a courageous woman would nominate an American Hero, Bradley Manning, for the Nobel. That is just too perfect.
