More Wednesday Stupid: Berkeley City Council wants to honor the soldier who sent classified material to WikiLeaks

Via AP:
The Berkeley City Council will consider a resolution that would declare the Army private suspected of leaking classified information to WikiLeaks a hero and call for his release. The council plans a vote Tuesday on the resolution in support of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is being held in a military brig in Virginia. A city commission already has approved it. Bob Meola, who authored the resolution, tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Manning is a patriot who deserves a medal. Federal officials have criticized the leaks, saying they could endanger lives. Leaders of the famously left-leaning city have weighed in on controversial national issues before, including votes to advise that a Marine recruitment office wasn’t welcome downtown and to force local compliance with United Nations human rights treaties.
