I agree. I am all for the truth. They can not prove he did any harm. Should I be arrested also because I said for years the military experimented with agent orange for years before they ever admitted it? Should people go to jail because they exposed the truth that there was never any evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq or no proven ties to al queda?
The army has been using the media for a long time to further its agenda while trying to keep up the illusion that they have integrity, and with lies if necessary. They do a sales job on the public and we are paying them to do it. Hundreds and possibly thousands of appearances were made by people at the Pentagon to sell the people on attacking Iraq. They even stopped any media coverage that showed funerals or men being brought home in coffins. They also do not show all the Iraqi's that got killed. The media is an accesory to their crimes. There is no such the thing as freedom and democracy ,in prcatice any way,when they use their money to wage psycological warfare on the people to control what they think so they can in turn carry out the agenda they already decided is best for us. The military hates free thinkers and trhey hate freedom ,yet they convince people just the opposite. The only freedom they really want you to have is the freedom to believe what they believe.
They even gave Manning a reason to have an axe to grind. The military is a joke. In basic they zeroed in on him and gave him a hard time. That is how bassic works. They have a shitload of guys. They are all not measured by the same criteria. they do not inspect every bed or locker. They set their sights on one or a few guys right away and go after him Gomer Pyle style ,because they do not like they way they look or act.
