The jailed military intelligence analyst's sentence was commuted on Tuesday by outgoing US President Barack Obama
After President Obama commuted the 35-year sentence of US whistleblower Chelsea Manning on Tuesday, bringing her release date forward to 17 May, Middle East Eye looks at the impact of the information she passed on to WikiLeaks. Some have condemned her for risking American security interests, while others have hailed her as a champion of human rights and transparency.
Much of the information released by Manning was focused on the Middle East and US interventions in the region. With that in mind, here are the top seven revelations from the leaked documents pertaining to the region:
1. Collateral murder
Probably the most infamous WikiLeak release of them all, this video footage of a US army attack in Baghdad in which 12 people died - including two Reuters journalists - shocked the world, particularly the mocking dialogue between the two soldiers on the tape.
The lead helicopter opens fire, to which one of the crew exclaims "Hahaha. I hit 'em."
Another responds: "Oh yeah, look at those dead bastards."
