Sentencing phase continues in Manning trial; State Dept. argues leaks caused damage




caused damage…to our reputation as fine, upstanding world leaders in not torturing and not supporting dictators. Oh wait.


Well, if I remember the news when the leaks first hit, Responsible Journalists and Serious Commentators everywhere were assuring me that absolutely nothing of the slightest importance had happened, nothing to see here, folks, just a peon with delusions of grandeur.

I’m guessing that we’ll see a fair few embarrassing-if-they-were-capable-of-shame reversals, and the sudden appearance of (the until-now stubbornly absent, even from official DoD material) shocking casualties?


Manning murdered our credibility!
