Kevin Zeese, Executive Director of VotersForPeace and Co-Chair of Come Home America, discusses his article “Dismissal Is the Only Option in Bradley Manning Case;” the prosecution’s withholding of government damage-assessment reports, which could help disprove Manning’s “aiding the enemy” charge; statements from President Obama and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey (last paragraph) that bolster an “unlawful command influence” defense; and whether Judge Col. Denise Lind will rule fairly, resisting the government pressure and bribes that accompany cases of this magnitude.

  1. Scott, I'm going to miss your hosting on FDL book salon owing to weekend guest.

    I'm a regular on those book salons, so I am really sorry to miss yours. I may try to get online for just a short time to say hello.

  2. Sole purpose of government — Protect society from war materials industry

    The 25% most wealthy own 90% of everything, giving them 100% control of everything but the ballet box. So, why be so stupid as to allow them any control over government?

  3. Free Bradley Manning!

  4. In a little lady’s hands — The destiny of the world

    So, a lady judge shall have power to decide if Manning gets life in prison and thereby perpetuate the total secrecy of a most criminal and corrupt Empire, the ultimate conclusion of which being a first-strike full-strike of all 5,000 nukes exploding simultaneously.

  6. In the same boat as Bradley Manning, this is our predicament, for we are in the business of changing public opinion and until the change takes place, a slight majority of people have an intense hatred for our guts. For as Hess use to say before they burnt him at the stake,

    “He who speaks the truth breaks his own neck.”

  7. “He who speaks the truth breaks his own neck.” very intelligent! The moral of it; everyone should lie or shut up to save their necks!
    Who was that nigger that said, “there comes a time when a man …….” was it Ben E. King, or Ron King, noooo it was Luther King.
