The Damage Done To America By Manning … And Obama

January 19, 2017 by

By Andrew C McCarthy ~ I emphatically agree with every word of David’s post on the disgrace that is Obama’s commutation of Bradley Manning’s richly deserved 35-year (a sentence that is in fact lenient under the circumstances, as David explains). I want to add three points. First, it is also disgraceful for the New York […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Labor historian Nick Dyrenfurth on Julia Assange, a “hero” who shames the Left: The pro-Assange cult gripping sections of the Western left has been exposed for the hypocritical sham that it is.

A Dry Bones Cartoon Today’s cartoon asks the question “If an American diplomat speaks in a forest and there’s nobody from Wikileaks to leak us the truth, is there a noise?” So what’s next?

I wasn’t going to comment on the WikiLeaks exposure, because it only adds to the credence given to this release of documents, and anything I add would only be a personal perspective, but that personal opinion is something that is worthwhile adding to this debate.

By Alan Caruba The one thing that the pundicracy—the columnists, former government and other folk who express themselves in print and broadcast media—have missed about the latest WikiLeaks outrage is that, like the earlier one regarding Afghan military operations, both have been directed solely at the United States of America.
