Razer Raygun Says: Sharing IS Caring! Bookmark and Share

In The News:
Thanks this morning to ChrisM, my MP3Angel, for supplying the news and commentary audio files.

» NATO announces that they're going to commit a war crime - NATO, who apparently have collectively tossed the UN resolution on the protection of Libyan citizens aside has announced that the civilians in Tripoli who are supporting their government by stationing themselves near military equipment and installations should move or prepare to be bombed.

Meanwhile, the old story about Serbian and Bosnian mercenaries resurfaces with a twist. Apparently there are claims they are being used as minders/police on the streets to maintain order and perhaps force the citizens of Tripoli NOT to move away from about-to-be-bombed areas, much in the way Blackwater patrolled New Orleans after hurricane Katrina and prevented people from leaving the city. The US press has of course failed to make that semantic connection.

» Two war journalists on contract to ABC have been killed by RPG fire. One, Tim Hetherington, was co-director of the blockbuster movie "Restrepo" about our war on Afghanistan. He and his colleague Chris Hondros were killed. Two others were wounded. This happened in the middle of Misrata meaning there IS fighting in the city now, as RPGs are not long range weapons. Slideshow and obituary at the Telegraph UK.

» It is the worst drought since 1917 and one and a half million acres of Texas are on fire. There are ten major fires. Two hundred and fifty two of 254 counties have fires burning... including one about 60 miles from Fort Worth.

Yesterday the breaking news was the removal of Private Bradley Manning from conditions hundreds of experts have confirmed violate Manning's constitutional rights at Quantico Marine Brig
and his surprise relocation to Leavenworth Penitentiary for what appear to be an INDEFINITE PERIOD OF INCARCERATION despite the fact-of-US-military-law that he HAS TO be arraigned within a year... That year is up on May 23 2011.

A senior editor at the New Yorker had a few words for the Pentagon about it...
When P. J. Crowley, a State Department spokesman, called the Pentagon’s treatment of Manning “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid,” he lost his job. There have also been inquiries from the United Nations and Amnesty International. Perhaps that is why Jeh Johnson, the Pentagon’s general counsel, in explaining why Manning was being transferred, said no one should see this as a criticism of Quantico; it was just that Fort Leavenworth was really, really great—wonderful.

He used the word “appropriate” about the move five times in a few minutes. (By coincidence, I wrote about the Supreme Court’s use of that word in a case about Guantánamo yesterday.)

That prompted an obvious question:
Q: Sir, you said that there could be criticism or that there could be interpretations that this—the pre-trial confinement was inappropriate, but that everything was followed by the letter of the law. At any point, do you think—in your judgment, do you think that Private Manning, there was bad judgment used in the way that he was treated at Quantico; despite the fact whether it was by the letter of the law, that people who were running the facility at Quantico used bad judgment in the way he was treated?

JOHNSON: No, I do not believe that.

I also know that I am the lawyer for the Department of Defense. I am not a corrections expert, and so I hesitate to second guess any of the judgments made by the personnel there in dealing with this particular confinee.
An unnamed military official who spoke to NBC did second-guess them, though, saying, “The Marines blew it.”

Later, the Pentagon tweeted
Many will be tempted to interpret today’s action as criticism of facility at Quantico. That is not the case says #DOD General Counsel
He can say it all he wants; that is not a hard temptation to yield to, nor should it be... [Read It All]
So... The Pentagon THINKS they can isolate and disenfranchise Brad Manning from his support and legal counsel by moving him to what is known to most of us as "Bumfuck" and attempt to ILLEGALLY INCARCERATE HIM INDEFINITELY... They are Sooooo wrong.
Rally at Leavenworth for Bradley Manning!

Rally to protest the indefinite detention and unconstitutional torture of Bradley Manning.

» They haven't been the same since they left Ebbetts Field Brooklyn - Major League Baseball INC has attempted to take control of the Los Angeles Dodgers from Frank McCourt after he failed to make payroll in April. McCourt took a loan from Fox Network, the company he purchased it from a while back, but it was insufficient. MLB INC will attempt to appoint a pro-tem 'owner' until the financial details settle down but it appears McCourt WILL fight back.
