Bradley Manning got nailed today by a military judge for exposing the truth. The folks who committed war crimes in Afghanistan and Iraq have almost all walked scot-free. The folks who made the policies that led to the abuses have never faced federal charges. Dreamworks has a movie on Wikileaks that will be coming out this Fall. This is as good a day as any to view the trailer….
And this is also a good day to revive the WikiLeaks Know-Nothing Pledge poster from Tom Blanton, the mastermind of The Project for a New American Revolution.
Tom has other top notch libertarian-themed political art work at his Flickr page here.
I have met a number of Washingtonians who have proudly informed me that, because they have a security clearance, they have avoided reading any of the documents that WikiLeaks disclosed. They wear their ignorance like a badge of honor.
UPDATE: Tom Blanton notes: “The Wikileaks Pledge manifested itself in Snowden’s case as the Glenn Greenwald Blockade when the military blocked the Guardian website [where Greenwald reported the leaked documents] from their servers.”
