Letter to President Obama from a Loyal Supporter

At this point in your presidency, the situation may seem far too similar to the events that led to President Bush's misguided responses to September 11 and disastrously illogical decision to also invade Iraq.

(CHICAGO) - Barack Obama Dear President Obama,

I supported you in both elections, with my vote and financial giving. When you were elected, I was overjoyed that the US had a leader in the White House who was bright, articulate and honest. After the Bush years, many of us were very discouraged about our country, but you brought hope.

Prosecuted for Embarrassing Obama

Knowing his obligation to report war crimes, Manning went to his superior officers to report war crimes and other atrocities he discovered. His superiors refused to act. Eventually he gave the information to Wikileaks.

(RICHMOND, RI) - Bradley Manning If you or I do something bad, we would prefer that others not learn of it. Criminals go so far as to bribe, beat or kill witnesses to prevent them from testifying.

But presidents have another option. A president anxious to keep secret an illegal action or an embarrassing memo simply classifies it “secret.” Then if a whistleblower reveals something, prosecute him for “aiding the enemy.”

Not Impeaching Bush Is Sure Paying Off!

Refusal to impeach pulls the foundation out from under representative government.

(CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA) - GW Bush and torture Many loyal Republicans opposed impeaching George W. Bush.

So did most liberal and progressive activist groups, labor unions, peace organizations, churches, media outlets, journalists, pundits, organizers, and bloggers, not to mention most Democratic members of Congress, most Democrats dreaming of someday being in Congress, and -- toward the end of the Bush presidency -- most supporters of candidate Barack Obama or candidate Hillary Clinton.

An Example of Manning`s Whistleblowing

This is an example of the important information the US tries to keep secret from the public...

(PORTLAND, OR) - Bradley Manning If you follow the story of the IAEA and Iranian nukes, you may have noticed a pro-US bias in the IAEA’s bureaucracy in Vienna.

That was precisely the result the US expected when it pushed Yukiya Amano of Japan, a nation with a military alliance with the US, to be secretary general. The US mission to the IAEA reported that Amano is “solidly in the US court on every key strategic decision, from high-level personnel appointments to the handling of Iran’s alleged nuclear weapons program”.
