Shooting the messenger

They were caught shooting civilians – why should we be surprised that, instead of tightening the rules so such a massacre doesn’t happen again, the US military is instead presently metaphorically shooting the messenger?

A US Army statement says Private First Class Bradley Manning, held in a military jail in Kuwait since last month, faces two charges of misconduct.

If Obama was a principled man, the same one who campaigned as an advocate for whistleblowers, he’d pardon Private Manning. Manning should be lauded, not persecuted.

    Well you don’t get to be the president of the US based on principles. Still not sure why people are surprised by Obama lacking these.
