Sen Lindsey Graham & Rep Joe Wilson have no sympathy for Bradley Manning

Sen Lindsey Graham @GrahamBlog & Rep Joe Wilson @CongJoeWilson have no sympathy for #BradleyManning

I recorded this audio with my cell phone, and I asked the question, so turn down the volume at the beginning of the recording and then turn it up when Senator Graham starts speaking. I did not get my question out well, but I think they answered clearly that they will not intervene on Bradley Manning’s behalf.

This is an excerpt from a question and answer session Senator Graham gave at the end of a talk in North Augusta, South Carolina on October 1, 2012. In the entire audio recording, this excerpt begins at 18:29 and ends at 21:11.

P.S. Senator Graham appears in CableGate memos 60 times.

Mistreating @HRW – @PBS mentions #Libya using #ClusterBombs, ignores #USA #Israel @banclusterbombs

United States Public Broadcasting System’s The News Hour highlights Libya’s use of cluster bombs and fails to mention the United States’s and Israel’s use of cluster bombs.

PBS’s The News Hour’s piece Fighting Continues in Misrata as 3 Countries Send Advisers to Assist Rebels, broadcast April 20, 2011, mentions the Human Rights Watch report on Libya’s use of cluster bombs in Misrata April 14, 2011.

Yet The News Hour fails to mention Human Rights Watch’s reports on the United States’s use of cluster bombs in Afghanistan in 2002 and Iraq in 2003 and its reports on Israel’s use of cluster bombs in Lebanon in 2006.

According to the Cluster Munition Coalition, the United States has not signed nor ratified the Convention on Cluster Munitions has not participated in the Oslo Process meetings.

I condemn the Libyan government’s use of these inhumane weapons, and I’m happy that The News Hour used Human Rights Watch as a source of information. But The News Hour should bring to the attention of its viewers that their own government and its allies use these weapons in addition to today’s villain du jour.

US Military’s Real DADT Policy: Don’t ask if they’re civilians, don’t ask if you’ve killed them in cold blood

University of Michigan Campus

On October 20 2010, two IDF soldiers came to the University of Michigan campus as part of a national PR campaign by Stand With Us aimed at justifying Israel’s recent atrocities in the Middle East. Students, staff, and community members collectively engaged in a silent walk-out in memory and in solidarity with all of the silenced Palestinian children that were killed by the IDF during Israel’s most recent offensive on the Gaza Strip who are unable to take a stand and give their account today.
