Boo Hoo: Israelis decry US refusal to let traitorous Israeli spy see dying father
"Pollard, a former US Navy analyst, passed thousands of secret documents about American spy activities in the Arab world to Israel between May 1984 and his arrest in November 1985.
In early March, Manning was forced to remain naked for hours, supposedly for “suicide prevention.” (New York Times, March 2) “This type of degrading treatment is inexcusable and without justification,” wrote his lawyer, David Coombs. “It is an embarrassment to [the U.S.] military justice system and should not be tolerated.”
A Marine spokesperson claimed the step was “not punitive.” President Barack Obama said that he had been assured that measures such as forcing Pfc. Manning to sleep without clothing were “justified and for his safety,” the Times said. (March 11)
Geoff Morrell, Pentagon press secretary told MSNBC that the conditions of Manning’s confinement are attributed to “the seriousness of the charges he’s facing, the potential length of sentence, the national security implications and to protect him from potential harm.” (March 3)
On March 2, the Pentagon announced the addition of 22 new charges, including “aiding the enemy,” which carries the death penalty."
Yes - America's double standards are telling indeed. There are those above the law - like Israeli spies who cry about being in jail when they should have been hanged - enjoying positive media coverage. And then....there are the rest of us - true American patriots who know that to criticize the Federal Government during this Orwellian nightmare - or to reveal information that demonstrates crime at the highest levels - may carry the death penalty - regardless of the intent of the leaks.
I'd like to add that I don't care much for the Wikileaks show - Julian Assange has been quite vocal about helping to discredit the 911 truth movement. That means he gets a zero for credibility in my book.
Our laws are for everybody - high or low. It isn't supposed to matter. Social status - money - etc... are not supposed to factor in when justice is to be served. All one must do is open their eyes to see that this is hardly the case in America - and we must continue the fight to reverse the trend.
