World Press Reacts To Bradley Manning Verdict


A day after a U.S. military court convicted Bradley Manning of 20 charges -- including espionage, theft and computer fraud -- the world press reacted Wednesday to the WikiLeaks whistleblower judgment. Some newspapers chose to emphasize the fact that Manning was found not guilty on the most serious charge of aiding the enemy.

Two Italians, in their sixties, got up from the restaurant table and left (without saying goodbye, as the owner points out), when they declared that they didn't want to eat in a restaurant where the chef was what they called: an 'n-word.'

Racists, poor things. And ignorant, in the sense of not knowing basic facts. They don't realize that we are all made of mixtures, come from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. And that food, of course, are blends of different ingredients and recipes.
