"Democracy is when both privates and generals are put on trial for breaching the law" - Russian MP

**Manning’s sentence shows that American democracy goes wrong - Russian MP -

A 35-year prison sentence for WikiLeaks informer Bradley Banning shows that in the United States it’s “privates” and not their superiors that stand trial for breaching the law, which is a glaring sign that something is going wrong in the American democracy, Alexei Pushkov, head of the foreign affairs committee of Russia’s lower house of parliament, said on Wednesday.

“A private has stood trial for breaching the US laws, but none of the generals, who lied to the American nation and who claimed that the system for tapping phone calls and intercepting Internet mail had not been used against Americans, appeared before court,” he said.

Check Out The story of the 2 Russian brothers suspected in the Boston bombings

Two Russians bothers, 26 year old Tamerlan and 19 year old Dzhokhar, a second-year medical student in the U.S, are suspected to be behind the Boston Marathon bombings. Tamerlan was killed in a shootout with police last night, Dzhokhar is being intensely pursued. Below is their story...

From Boston Associated Press 
In May of 2011, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev (pictured above and below right), then a senior at a prestigious high school, was awarded a $2,500 scholarship from the city of Cambridge, Mass., to pursue higher education. Now, Tsarnaev is on the run, described as "armed and dangerous" and suspected of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Two brothers, one now dead, one alive and at large. After hours of only grainy images of two men in baseball caps to go on, a portrait gradually started emerging Friday of the men suspected in the attack.
Tsarnaev, 19, and his older brother, Tamerlan, who was killed during a violent night in Cambridge, had been living together on Norfolk Street in Cambridge. An uncle, Ruslan Tsarni of Montgomery Village, Md., told The Associated Press that the men lived together near Boston and have been in the United States for about a decade. They came from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars.
