Everything Is About Something Different

Bradley Manning Gets Moved to Fort Leavenworth – Cartoon

with 4 comments

[UPDATE Below – President Obama speaks on Manning and the rule of law]

MacLeod Cartoons:

Glenn Greenwald details the important role of the blogosphere in getting Manning’s case enough attention. I just hope that Leavenworth, and ‘access to other inmates’, doesn’t lead to a worse situation for PFC Manning.


[UPDATE :: Sunday, April 24, 2011]

Glenn Greenwald has an extremely good article, President Obama speaks on Manning and the rule of law

Here is an excerpt that I think just about says it all:

That Obama has to resort to the most brazen hypocrisy and factually confused claims to defend Manning’s treatment should hardly be surprising (and as Politico‘s quoted experts noted, Obama was also deeply confused when he claimed yesterday that he, too, would be breaking the law if he released unauthorized classified information, since the President has the unfettered right to declassify what he wants). Those engaged in purely unjustifiable conduct can, by definition, find only incoherent and nonsensical rationale to justify what they’re doing. The President’s remarks yesterday (April 22, 2011) provide a classic case of how true that is.

  1. What’s the matter? You puling traitor lovers wanted Manning out of solitary and that’s to some extent happening.

    He gets three hours per day amid the general population.

    I like it. It means that general population has three hours a day in which they have access to him and the means to do the right thing and exterminate Manning.

    • And we wonder what happened to the Rule of Law in this country . . .

      • I and most I know don’t wonder about it at all. We understand two things very well:

        1 – The law cannot be allowed to handle every situation because its use would be corrupted by letting it do so.

        2 – Those who ultimately enforce the law are no longer trustworthy and will enforce it or not for political reasons instead of objectively.

  2. When there is no rule of law there is ONLY anarchy. So, what do you do, accuse someone of some thing you believe is is bad, such as treasonous, and then go exterminate them?
