Glen Greenwald with his usual libertarian-infused take. Thoughts?
Glenn Greenwald: The US does nothing to punish those guilty of war crimes or Wall Street fraud, yet demonises the whistleblower
“Close tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share,” Reagan vowed.
Pretty simple thoughts, actually.
This cocksucker needs to be shot for treason. Plain and simple.
He violated the trust placed in him, he breached national security, and there is NOTHING that excuses that.
I'd volunteer for the firing squad.
Yeah, that about sums it up.
That also sums up my feelings. Whoever wrote this article is an idiot. False equivalencies are rampant throughout.
Someone downvoted that?
Of course, it's also no surprise that whoever did it doesn't have the balls to come out and say it aloud.
Which is appropriate, given the subject.
Yeah, I know. Downvote this too.
The downvote thing is dumb.
I upvoted you to even out things.
I can't believe they are referring to Bradley as a "whistleblower" like he is a low level mail room boy who exposed the CEO of a major corporation. Nope. He is a snivelling little bitch and traitor who deserves life in prison with hard labor.
Haha. Ok I got downvoted for that, which was genuinely funny!
remind me as to what exactly did he leak?
Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Classified documents, including military information and State Department secrets. The specific list is too long to post.
I knew that much, I was asking on more of what was the most damaging info that he leaked? Was it anything that put any of our servicemen in danger?
Bradley Manning aided al-Qaida with WikiLeaks documents, military says
Manning, charged with aiding the enemy, accused of indirectly aiding terrorist group by leaking thousands of documents
Army private Bradley Manning aided al-Qaida by leaking hundreds of thousands of military and other government documents to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks, the military said.
Manning had previously been charged with aiding the enemy among a total of 22 counts, but on Thursday the military identified the enemy Manning's actions aided. Manning and his attorneys are appearing at a hearing at a military courtroom for two days of hearings in the case.
During Thursday morning's hearing the military judge in the case announced military prosecutors' answers to a series of questions about the accusations against Manning. The judge, Colonel Denise Lind, said the government contends Manning indirectly aided al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula by giving information to WikiLeaks.
Military prosecutors say Manning, 24, downloaded and sent to WikiLeaks nearly half a million sensitive battlefield reports from Iraq and Afghanistan, hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables, and a video of a deadly 2007 Army helicopter attack that WikiLeaks shared with the world and dubbed "Collateral Murder".
Defence lawyers say Manning was clearly a troubled young soldier whom the Army should never have deployed to Iraq or given access to classified material while he was stationed there from late 2009 to mid-2010. They say the leaked material did little or no harm to national security.
Manning is expected to learn during the current two days of hearings when his trial will start. During his most recent hearing in late February, no trial date was set, though the timing was discussed. During that hearing, which lasted less than an hour, Manning declined to enter a plea to the counts he faces, including aiding the enemy, which could result in life imprisonment. He also put off choosing whether to be tried by a military jury or judge alone.
