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.

  1. It is my recollection there was quite an uproar nationally when Nixon spoke of Manson as being "guilty".

  2. I, like Nixon, believe that if the President does it, it's legal and it's okay.

  3. How good a lawyer is Coombs. He always have seemed a day late and a dollar short.

  4. "Judge Roy Bean Obama"? That's a good one!
