Daniel Ellsberg:
I was the Bradley Manning of my day. In 1971 I too faced life (115  years) in prison for exposing classified government lies and crimes.  President Obama says “the Ellsberg material was classified on a  different basis.”  True. The Pentagon Papers were not Secret like the  Wikileaks revelations, they were all marked Top Secret—Sensitive.
 Ultimately all charges in my case were dropped because of criminal  governmental misconduct toward me during my proceedings.  Exactly the  same outcome should occur now, in light of the criminal conditions of  Manning’s confinement for the last six months.

WikiLeaks cables: A guide to Gaddafi’s ‘famously fractious’ family
Muammar Gaddafi: The patriarch, now 68, was described by US ambassador to Tripoli, Gene Cretz, in 2009 as a “mercurial and eccentric figure who suffers from severe phobias, enjoys flamenco dancing and horseracing, acts on whims and irritates friends and enemies alike.” Gaddafi has an intense dislike or fear of staying on upper floors, and prefers not to fly over water, the cables add.
