Welcome to the Daily Molotov, all the news that’s fit to hate the state with.
Chelsea Manning, the whistleblower who was arrested in 2010 for leaking documents about the Iraq and Afghan Wars to Wikileaks, will be released in May after outgoing president Barack Obama commuted the remainder of her sentence.
Excuse us while we celebrate instead of post a normal blog post. Congratulations to all of the activists and supporters who pushed for Manning’s release. We’ll see you tomorrow.
