VS martelen eigen soldaat

Bradley Manning, een 23-jarige Amerikaanse soldaat, wordt gemarteld door de Verenigde Staten. Hij wordt ervan beschuldigd geheime dossiers te hebben gelekt naar de klokkenluiders-site WikiLeaks. Hij zit inmiddels bijna 300 dagen in voorarrest, eerst twee maanden in Koeweit en sindsdien in een gevangenis van de Amerikaanse marine in Quantico, Virginia.  (en lees verder bij socialisme.nu – VS martelen eigen soldaat)

9 gedachten over “VS martelen eigen soldaat”

  1. De VS verworden zijn een fascistische politiestaat. Iedereen, die zich daarin enigszins verdiept en niet afgaat op de napraterij die onze media verkondigen, weet dat. War=Peace en Truth=Treason. We zijn hier in Europa en NL. trouwens ook hard op weg.

  2. Ja, want dit is uiteraard veel erger en gênanter dan die doodseskaders die in Afghanistan voor de lol op burgers joegen.

    Wat mij betreft kunnen er niet genoeg misstanden openbaar worden gemaakt.

  3. Een passage in de laatste e-mail die ik ontving.

    “‘Editorial note: Why is Obama echoing Bradley’s chat logs?
    On May 19th, Obama gave a “moment of opportunity” speech in which he praised the democratic protests in the Middle East. He also said:

    “Through our efforts we must support those basic rights to speak your mind and access information. We will support open access to the Internet, and the right of journalists to be heard – whether it’s a big news organization or a blogger. In the 21st century, information is power; the truth cannot be hidden; and the legitimacy of governments will ultimately depend on active and informed citizens. Such open discourse is important even if what is said does not square with our worldview.”

    Ironically, that sounds a lot like Bradley’s alleged chat logs, which are being held by the Pentagon as evidence that Bradley was ‘Aiding The Enemy.’

    “I want people to see the truth, regardless of who they are, because without the truth you can’t make informed decisions as a public.”
    Doubly ironic is that the cables Manning is alleged to have leaked have been hailed as a catalyst of the growing democracy in the Arab world. So why the gap between Obama’s encouraging words and his intent on prosecuting both Manning and Assange?”‘

  5. Four Reasons Why Bradley Manning Deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom

    By Chase Madar, Huffington Post.

    We still don’t know if he did it or not, but if Bradley Manning, the 24-year-old Army private from Oklahoma, actually supplied WikiLeaks with its choicest material — the Iraq War logs, the Afghan War logs, and the State Department cables — which startled and riveted the world, then he deserves the Presidential Medal of Freedom instead of a jail cell at Fort Leavenworth.

    Knowledge is powerful. The WikiLeaks disclosures have helped spark what Operation Iraqi Freedom never could.

    Wasn’t it American policy to spread democracy in the Middle East, to extend our freedom to others, as both recent American presidents have insisted?

    No single American has done more to help further this goal than Pfc. Bradley Manning. The chain reaction of democratic protests and uprisings that has swept Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Syria, Yemen, and even in a modest way Iraq, all began in Tunisia, where leaked U.S. State Department cables about the staggering corruption of the ruling Ben Ali dynasty helped trigger the rebellion. In all cases, these societies were smoldering with longstanding grievances against oppressive, incompetent governments and economies stifled by cronyism. The revelations from the WikiLeaks State Department documents played a widely acknowledged role in sparking these pro-democracy uprisings.

    Wie in de gelegenheid is kan President Obama er over bellen op dit nummer: at the White House switchboard: 202-456-1414

    of Secretary of the Army op dit nummer: Public Affairs Officer Lt. Anne Edgecomb: 703-697-3491

    Zie: http://ymlp.com/zsLDjv Will you take a few minutes to make two important phone calls for Bradley today?

    We want to put pressure on the Obama Administration and the Secretary of the Army to comply with the United Nations’ demand. Juan Mendez, the UN’s top official on torture, has requested unmonitored meetings with Bradley. Mr. Mendez wants to insure that international protocol for prisoner treatment and justice are followed.
