Hillary Clinton attacks Bradley Manning at press conference; No wonder: Wikileaked emails showed State Department's shocking collusion with foreign pipeline company

Bradley Manning is in military court for pretrial hearing today.

Yesterday, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton attacked him at a State Department press conference, calling Manning's alleged actions damaging and unfortunate.
"I think that in an age where so much information is flying through cyberspace, we all have to be aware of the fact that some information which is sensitive, which does affect the security of individuals and relationships, deserves to be protected and we will continue to take necessary steps to do so."
It's not surprising that Hillary Clinton wants Manning incarcerated for a long time; released Wikileaks documents he is accused of providing reveal the shocking extent of collusion between the Clinton State Department and TransCanada during its attempts to construct a tar sands oil pipeline across the environmentally vulnerable Ogallala Aquifer in the sandhills of western Nebraska.
The emails released today are a smoking gun that show how oil industry lobbying money has corrupted the State Department’s review of Keystone XL. They come out just after it was revealed that the State Department relied on a major TransCanada contractor to conduct its environmental review and public hearings on Keystone XL, and Wikileaks cables showed that other officials at the department gave the company tips on how to get the pipeline approved.
