Today I've seen a diary calling Obama for being shameful and for the Libyans to spill their own blood, I've seen diaries arguing over the "new war" in Libya. Frontpage stuff about Democrats not playing hardball, etc.
Why have I not found or seen one diary covering the protests of the treatment of Bradley Manning?
Firedoglake has been covering the events today in which hundreds if not thousands of protesters headed to the Marine base at Quantico where Bradley Manning is being tortured by Obama's DOD.
Reports of hundreds, if not thousands of police forces packing MP5's, Riot Shields, and full body armor to defend against the peaceful protests to give Manning what he deserves: release from the torturous conditions under which he suffers.
Without due process.
This is not only an American Citizen, but he's one of our own Soldiers for cryin' out loud.
Reading this thread at FDL will help you show just what the people we elected to represent us are doing to one of the citizens who elected to serve us in the armed forces.
Obama's not only not protecting whistleblowers like Manning, but he's clearly okay with them being tortured.
If Obama isn't further proving himself to be the 2nd Coming of BushCo, I don't know what else the man has to do.
My support for him is eroding away. Hope and Change apparently means nothing when the Military-Industrial-Corporate-Bankster Complex tells you to jump.
