    ...and of course he can say what he likes about this case, just as the diarist can, including calling someone a traitor.

    Just as I could said, if I were to have been less polite about it, that somebody who argues for incarcerating a person without a trial is unAmerican (even though certain categories of people have been treated unjustly from the time of nation's founding right up until now so perhaps "unAmerican" isn't an accurate descriptor).

        •  Okay. (0+ / 0-)

          But you are talking about some very rare occurrences. Probably nonexistent in the military justice system that Manning is subject to.

          •  There's no such thing as military justice. (0+ / 0-)

            The concept is oxymoronic.
