Still waiting to see how the release of that info has caused any serious harm to the public..
Clearly, Bradley Manning is causing the internal rift within the political spectrum.. not the administrations belligerence about his treatment...
Cue the dirt people are going to start digging up on Crowley now..
Crowley said that he was taking responsibility for the impact of his remarks about Bradley Manning (external - login to view), which has made the US Army look like a bunch of petty morons who like torturing people for making them look stupid.
Kind of like you saying that you don't think he caused any harm. It doesn't really mean anything.
At any rate... I was trying to add some humor.
"The first guard told me to “turn left.” When I complied, the second guard yelled “don’t turn left.” When I attempted to comply with the demands of the second guard, I was told by the first, “I said turn left.” I responded “yes, Corporal” to the first guard. At this point, the third guard chimed in by telling me that “in the Marines we reply with ‘aye’ and not ‘yes.’” He then asked me if I understood. I made the mistake of replying “yes, Sergeant.” At this point the forth guard yelled, “you mean ‘aye,’ Sergeant.” - Bradley Manning
This actually sounds like my first few minutes of Marine Recruit Training on Parris Island.
Come on Bradley! You're at the Marine Brig in Quantico Virginia... not Club Med!
I think military discipline appears alien and barbaric to anyone who has never gone through it or understands it.
Yes - Major Douchebag:
I think they already can do better. But if these guys are the status quo then we're all in for ****.
America has been violating the national sovereignty of dozens of nations for a hundred years. Why are you guys so special?
If he's been in complete isolation, forced to stand up all day long or walk in circles for over 6 months... And then they pour on this crap just to **** around with him.. All because he released the evil, flying monkeys over our poor nation.. Yea, I'd think that's all crap. This is just icing on the cake.
@eaglesmack - I have read through your posts on here and I will go a lot further than calling you <<snip>>
