Bradley Manning, WikiLeaks Movie, & the WikiLeaks Pledge

James Bovard, July 30, 2013

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.”

  1. I was expecting the Wikileaks movie to be a complete pro-US govt propaganda piece. The trailer looks decent.

  2. Simply understanding the OPs article I accept it as it’s valid and it’s good to see a guy that is blogging this publically to see

  4. Spot on with this write-up, I really assume this web site wants rather more consideration. I’ll in all probability be once more to learn much more, thanks for that info.

  5. It's going in that direction for a long time.
