Well, I'm shocked!
"The Pentagon subsequently concluded that the helicopter crews had acted within their rules of engagement"
Fresh news today in the case of Bradley Manning, the US soldier suspected of leaking classified military material - including video of a controversial attack-helicopter strike in which Iraqi civilians including children were hit - to Wikileaks. According to a statement issued by the 1st Armored Division public-affairs staff in …
so where is the news that the helicopter crew & the commander that gave the order to fire are being charged with murder of innocent civilians and that the pentagon are going to be charged for holding back a video that clearly shows it to be innocent people being murdered while spewing rhetoric claiming they were all insurgents?
so does this mean every insurgent claimed to be killed by the USA or coalition forces has been innocent?
remember kids its only terrorism when they do it!
"political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, & to give the appearance of solidity to pure wind." George Orwell
Manning was looking to expose criminal activity within the highest levels of the US administration. The docs were classified to protect them from prosecution/embarrasement.
Without someone like Manning, this stuff will just keep going on and on.
Thank you Lamo for following your conscience and doing the right thing, tool.
This guy deserves a medal, not punishment. If I had been in his position, I couldn't have lived with myself for not disclosing the material. Why? Like most people, I have a 'conscience'.
I fear for his safety & sanity. Just imagine all those sadistic US military big wigs; i'm sure they want to inflict as much suffering as possible.
I urge everyone who uses Twitter to follow @Wikileaks. The Wikileaks people are doing sterling work - I hope it carries of for generations to come. I admire them.
