“A widow is crying for justice,” Kenya’s Nation newspaper said Sunday.


A former British ambassador is delighted that Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning is likely heading for prison for the rest of his life.

Charles Crawford, writing in London’s Telegraph newspaper, dismissed Manning as a “silly, if not mentally ill, squirt” who “abused a position of trust” by leaking vast amounts of classified documents to an Internet site.

The former British envoy to Bosnia, Poland and Serbia said Manning differs from a genuine spy, such as Jonathan Jay Pollard, who has been in a U.S. prison since 1987 for spying for Israel.

Mr. Crawford said he went to the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy with Pollard, whom he described as a “clever bonehead.”
