BTC – We deserve better.  The armed service members in this country deserve better.  However- the sad truth is that Pvt. Bradley Manning is experiencing the US institution of torture and rendition consistent with being classified as a “terrorist”.

This is what the United States military has been reduced to: extorting us towards crushing debt to pay for torture and incarceration of our own citizens when THEY TELL THE TRUTH.

Be reminded, we may demand a different standard than, “shut up, lay down and take it without making any noise”.

Daniel Ellsberg, a pioneer in the art of the leak led a revolution in public awareness.  This was before news organizations were infiltrated by cold war era military plants.

It’s all we can do to to just stay dedicated to blowing the whistle; until The People come down like rain on the worst form of  governance in our name in US history.

Without further ado, Mr. Daniel Ellsberg, says it again.

A newly leaked CIA report prepared earlier this month (.pdf) analyzes how the U.S. Government can best manipulate public opinion in Germany and France — in order to ensure that those countries continue to fight in Afghanistan. The Report celebrates the fact that the governments of those two nations continue to fight the war in defiance of overwhelming public opinion which opposes it — so much for all the recent veneration of “consent of the governed” — and it notes that this is possible due to lack of interest among their citizenry: “Public Apathy Enables Leaders to Ignore Voters,” proclaims the title of one section.

But the Report also cites the “fall of the Dutch Government over its troop commitment to Afghanistan” and worries that — particularly if the “bloody summer in Afghanistan” that many predict takes place — what happened to the Dutch will spread as a result of the “fragility of European support” for the war.
