Bradley Manning Gets Moved to Fort Leavenworth – Cartoon
[UPDATE Below – “President Obama speaks on Manning and the rule of law“]
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.
