Film on Wikileaks' source is new release from Filmakers Library

Filmakers Library, an imprint of Alexander Street Press, today announces the addition of The Forgotten Man: Private Bradley Manning and the Wikileaks Controversy to its catalogue of titles. In The Forgotten Man, reporter Quentin McDermott tells the inside story of Private Bradley Manning, the alleged source of the classified documents published by WikiLeaks, and explores the disputes surrounding the scandal. Like the controversy itself, this film begins with the shocking 2007 U.S. Army video, published by Wikileaks in April 2010, showing a group of mostly unarmed men being gunned down in Bagdad by an American helicopter. This sets the stage for an intense investigation into the reasons and personalities behind the release of the video and many other U.S. war files
