Bradley Manning

President Obama says he accepts the Pentagon's assurances that Bradley Manning's treatment in custody is right and appropriate:

No it isn't. Manning, who has yet to stand trial, has been locked up in a cruel insanity machine. He has been accused of helping leak documents that compromised not the security of our people but the dignity of our leaders.

I'll say it again: I was ready for Obama to disappoint me. I was not ready for him to horrify me.

Once a Chicago politician always a Chicago politician. He figures if he keeps his head down and only slightly right reelection is certain. He may be right. I'm hoping for a third party e-revolution. If the Arabs can do it why can't we?
