    Apparently, I’ve been blocked from replying directly to others’ comments. Oh well, have seen enough at FDL to conclude most commenters are reflexively anti-American with little intellectual curiosity. This is an echo chamber, and a juvenile one at that. Yes, America has made mistakes. We should strive to be perfect, yes. But, DANG, folks, how [...]

    Nah, see, up above I was gently rebuked for using Lenin’s line about “useful idiots” in the West who supported communist goals under the guise of “peace” or “unity.” Then, as I read through this blog, I see the adjectives used in front of “Cheney” or “Bush” are, shall we say, not flattering.

It was not young Manning’s place to independently release information he promised to protect. He is (probably) a [...]

    How is it acceptable that Manning (probably) disclosed classified information, and that it will make our nation less safe? Isn’t that the issue?

    Very sorry for the “idiots” comment. I should have used a synonym.

    Much ado about nothing. The boy is being held under conditions typical for his case. Do not recall FDL interest in other prisoners’ conditions, so must conclude it’s really about the politics of the case. Bottom line, this young man is probably guilty of violating his oath to protect secrets. That makes him a criminal, [...]
