  1. Manning has been in solitary for a while. The free speech crowd didn't notice until Assange was locked up. I guess that's where an accent and a hair stylist comes in handy.

    Manning picked the wrong guy to release his documents to. The video of the Reuters journalists being murdered along with civilians trying to rescue them was devastating. It was an appropriate visual to the headline, "15.000 dead civilians have not been counted". First of all, the most meaningful truths were lost in an ocean of data about diplomatic gossip and other sundry subjects no one cares about. Second of all, the issue has switched from the truth about American foreign policy to whether being a celebrity gives you the right to sneak up on a woman when she's asleep and fuck her without a condom. Third of all, the actions of the assange cult are alienating a lot of people-such as
    Counterpunch publishing a hatchet piece on the women accusers, along with their names and a link to a video where they can be seen. Also, the threat of a mass attack on the internet is not endearing them to anybody here in America.

    I am really tired of watching people on the left make asses of themselves.

  2. I remember commenting on your comment Joe..Not sure what happened!!
