    Maybe he can leak info about the Kardashians for the next 20 years.

    What? You don’t trust big government? The only solution is probably going to be more and bigger government then. I suppose a global government would at least be free of international espionage. People using power to amend government will usually not think of less government as a cure for too much government.

    After 9/11/’01, the US voters, the Congress, the White House, and the Court system all agreed: the Constitution must be modified during a war, and the War on Terror is permanent, and so the modifications must be permanent.


    For the duration (i.e., forever), whatever the US government does is legal. Anything to which suspected Enemies of the State are subjected is NOT torture, but enhanced interrogation.


    Bush, Jr said he would do whatever it took to stop the terrorists, but he sent those traitors who filmed Abu Ghraib enhanced interrogations on their cellphones to prison for short terms, because they showed the Enemies of the US how the US used enhanced interrogation, so those enemies could be trained to resist, which was clearly treason, and their sentences were far too lenient.


    The same goes for all the others who leak how the US is conducting its War on Terror. Everything the US does is legal. The rack, the bastinado, thumbscrews, the Chinese Water Enhanced Interrogation, electrodes to the genitals, EVERYTHING the US does is perfectly legal, but revealing it just lets the Enemies of the US prepare for it, and reduces the effectiveness of these valuable interrogation techniques, which is clearly treason.


    Bush, Jr, who said he was doing everything necessary to fight terror with no holds barred, was far too lenient on those who leaked some of the details of his War on Terror.


    Obama, however, insists that, under his administration, the US is upholding the highest ideals, while combating Terror even more effectively than Bush, Jr did. Which means Obama absolutely cannot tolerate ANYONE revealing just how he is ensuring that these high ideals are followed while combating Terror.


    And so Obama has rightly prosecuted more whistleblowers, or, as we know them, traitors, and prosecuted them far more severely than any other president, as he must to maintain those high ideals while fighting all the Enemies of the State.

    Manning was a fool. He allowed himself to be swayed by Lasange, and used.

    As a soldier Manning agreed to give up his right to be a whistleblower. Any Vet will tell you, soldiers fall under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, not civil law. Manning accepted access to classified material. Again, when you accept this access you also accept additional limitations on your rights. If you can’t take the heat, don’t go in the kitchen. The boy knew what he was doing.

    There are ways to protest what the government is doing. Yes, they are slow and often unsatisfying. But they do work However, Manning, and Snowden as well, are weasly little pricks. They wanted to be big men. So rather than taking the slow, safe, legal way, they took the fast, sexy way, the one that gets you on TV, where those ignorant to how things work will call you a hero

    Manning and Snowden are right there with the Boston Bombers and the Aurora Shooter. Ignorant, disconnected kids that commit social destructive acts because they don’t live in reality.

    So who gets to decide what’s classified and what isn’t? The gov’t misuses the classification system to hide its failings.

    You forget that conservatives still think that releasing the Pentagon Papers and exposing Nixon’s lies and crimes was a treasonous act. They also think that Senator Joe McCarthy was a misunderstood patriot.

    and its actions that go against American ideals and values… If he is not a patriot, neither were Paul Revere, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, etc., etc., etc.

    Doesn’t it just bring a tear to your eye and a lump to your throat to see how valiantly Obama is upholding the traditions of Bush?

    I find that the answer, “God is dead and you’re not perfect and you’re not the boss of me” pretty much answers all complaints from detractors. Hard to argue logic like with that!

    Considering what he did for us, you are quite the cruel clueless one.

    Not bigger govt, better govt. Overhaul our election system. Take the money out of it.

    Which president hasn’t said they are “upholding the sacred ideals” of our govt?

    @PAJ

    The problem is that it had been shown before that many things have been classified just to cover them up. Manning was just doing us a service.

    Deport him from his own country? So the criminal actions he uncovered should have remained a secret. What a good robot you are. The coming Holy American Empire needs more like you.
