Bradley Manning meet up at Park Street

Filed under: General Discussion — bobfunke @ 2:26


First and foremost, I’d like to thank all who showed up to support Bradley. I know 35 years seems like a ridiculous sentence, (he should have been exonerated), but in all seriousness, I doubt Bradley will serve out this term.

While we must keep the pressure on those in power over this incident, we must also realize there are options open that can reduce and even pardon Bradley. Law is funny stuff, especially under the UCMJ. On a whim, a commander can exonerate Manning or reduce his sentence. Obama could easily sign a pardon.

Let us not forget that Lt Calley was responsible for the murder of civilians and Nixon placed him on house arrest, then pardoned him. Oliver North lied before congress, committed treason, (I do not use that word lightly because under the Constitution at least two people need to accuse an individual of treason, which did happen). Admiral Poindexter, for his part in the Iran-Contra situation was actually elevated in his position, he also lied before congress, but I cannot prove he committed treason, (he covered his tracks well.)

Our speakers were eloquent, getting out the message, something we must continue to do wherever we can. Plant seeds, nurture them, let people know of the injustice that Manning and others face every day, engage people, befriend them, get them to work with and beside you.

Remember, this is not over.
