    About 35 arrested at rally for Wikileaks suspectBy BEN NUCKOLS Associated Press Updated: Mar 20, 2011 11:07 PM EDT TRIANGLE, Va. (AP) - Wearing T-shirts and carrying signs bearing the smiling image of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, hundreds of people rallied Sunday outside the base where he's being detained on charges of providing classified data to Wikileaks. **SNIP** David House, a friend who has visited Manning about 15 times since September, told the protesters that Manning appreciated their support. "It's stuff like this that gives Bradley hope," House said. "When I go in there, look him in the eyes and...

    Firm Fires Back At Blogger Allegations Over Manning Rally Press ReleaseThis week, a press release was issued (text after the jump) with details about a rally planned for March 20 in support of Pfc. Bradley Manning. Manning is being held on a Marine Corps base in Quantico, V.A. on charges that he’s responsible for turning over classified information to Wikileaks. He’s been held since July, and some have called into question his treatment while in custody, saying that Manning has been abused. State Department spokesperson P.J. Crowley resigned from his post last week over his criticism of the way Manning...
  • The New York Times’ Crocodile Tears For Private Manning

    03/15/2011 12:18:49 PM PDT · by Michael van der Galien · 15 replies
    The New York Times ran an editorial today entitled “the Abuse of Private Manning.” Their crocodile tears for this alleged traitor are sickening. The Times editors complain that Pfc. Bradley Manning is being abused in prison while confined on charges that the editors minimize as simply handing government files to WikiLeaks What the Times editors leave out is that the charges rise to treason. They include “aiding the enemy,” wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on the Internet where it could be accessed by “the enemy,” theft of public records, and transmitting defense information. The charges stem from Manning’s alleged...

  • EDITORIAL: Obama’s Latest Torture--Administration hypocrisy over treatment of WikiLeaks prisoner

    President Obama is feeling the heat over the treatment of WikiLeaks suspect Army Pfc. Bradley E. Manning. During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. Obama took unseemly advantage of the accusation that George W. Bush's administration tortured terrorist detainees. Now even an O Force insider is strongly hinting that the administration’s conduct toward the individual thought to have leaked thousands of classified documents amounts to torture. Pfc. Manning’s attorney, David Coombs, last week released a letter in which Pfc. Manning purportedly described the “ordeal” he suffered in January during a three-day suicide watch at the brig where he is being held...

    Liberals have found another reason to be angry with President Obama: the ouster of P.J. Crowley, the State Department spokesman who announced his resignation Sunday after criticizing the Pentagon for its treatment of the WikiLeaks case suspect Private Bradley Manning. Jane Hamsher, one of Obama’s consistent antagonists at the liberal blog FireDogLake, which probably most epitomizes former White House press secretary Robert Gibbs’s epithet “the professional left,” is leading the charge. She wrote Monday in support of a protest against Manning’s treatment and Crowley’s firing with a march from the State Department to the White House. “With his firing...
  • Is Obama embracing torture? State Dept spokesman out of a job after criticizing treatment of Manning

    A State Department spokesman is out of a job after publicly criticizing the military's treatment of alleged WikiLeaker Bradley Manning. Obama maintains that Manning's treatment is "appropriate". State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned under pressure on Sunday, a few days after telling a small audience at MIT that the Obama administration's treatment of alleged WikiLeaks secret-spiller Pfc. Bradley Manning has been "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid." Asked about the criticism, Obama said the Pentagon had assured him that the conditions of Manning's detention — including, reportedly, some enforced nudity and 23 hours a day of solitary time — are "appropriate...

    State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley has resigned after publicly crossing swords with the Pentagon over the treatment of an Army soldier accused of leaking hundreds of thousands of classified military reports and sensitive diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks. A deputy secretary for public affairs, Crowley had been on the outs with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and rarely accompanied her on her travels abroad. Michael Hammer, President Barack Obama’s NSC spokesman, had been sent to State earlier this year, with the plan for him to succeed Crowley, sources said.

    I wrote a piece at ThurstonHowell.Net this morning titled "It's time to END the Player's Union and REPAIR the NFL" - in which I made the case that in a truly capitalist system, the CONSUMER should be the winner in any business and as a consumer, my main agenda is to advance the cause of there being a full season in 2011 -even if we are watching "scrubs" like they did back in the 80's - or was it early 90's? The cool thing about that year was that some players made the teams after the strike was over and...

    by Thurston Howell The thing that bothers me about professional sports the past few decades is –not- the large salaries athletes are paid. What bothers me is the fact that the teams that supposedly represent the cities in which they play really say nothing about the cities or regions themselves. Most of the players are not FROM the cities in which they play and never lived there until a team paid them millions of dollars to “take their talents there”. For EXAMPLE, no matter how well the Miami Heat may play, Lebron James was born and raised in the Cleveland,...

    It’s hard to believe that the State Department spokesman, P.J. Crowley, not exactly one to shoot from the hip, would come out with a statement like this. But the Guardian is reporting that during a lecture an MIT, Crowley had some surprisingly harsh words about the Pentagon’s treatment of accused WikiLeaks leaker Pfc. Bradley Manning: Hillary Clinton’s spokesman has launched a public attack on the Pentagon for the way it is treating military prisoner Bradley Manning, the US soldier suspected of handing the US embassy cables to WikiLeaks.

    While much of America views Bradley Manning, the private first class who has been accused of leaking secret documents to WikiLeaks, as a traitor, he does have some defenders who consider him nothing less than a patriot. “He was trying to help the country,” said Kevin Zeese, a member of the steering committee of the Bradley Manning Support Network. Zeese tells the story of Manning as a loss of innocence tale. The story of Manning, he says, is about “a guy who believes in America,” enlists in the army, and gets to Iraq only to discover that the country has,...
