Scott Horton Interviews Kevin Zeese
This recording is from the KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles broadcast of April 22nd. The KPFK archive is here.
Kevin Zeese, Executive Director and co-founder of VotersForPeace, discusses Obama’s declaration that Bradley Manning “broke the law” – despite awaiting a military trial ostensibly for the purpose of determining guilt or innocence – and how that makes a fair trial impossible; Obama’s bogus reasoning on why Manning is a criminal but Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg is not; Manning’s noble motives for leaking documents to WikiLeaks, if the Wired chat logs are to be believed; the Collateral Murder video and evidence of war crimes in Iraq; and a chronicle of Manning’s torture while in custody at the Quantico Marine brig.
