Starr Forum- The Passion of Chelsea Manning: The Story behind the Wikileaks

October 09, 2013 5:00p–6:30p

Book talk with Chase Madar
The astonishing leaks attributed to Chelsea (formerly Bradley) Manning 
are viewed from many angles, from Tunisia to Guantanamo Bay, from Foggy 
Bottom to Baghdad to small-town Oklahoma. Around the world, the eloquent 
alleged act of one young soldier forces citizens to ask themselves if 
they have the right to know what their government is doing.
