Commentary from the liberterrain…
Members of the Icelandic Parliamentary group "The Movement" have nominated Private First Class Bradley Manning for the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize for allegedly releasing "hundreds of thousands of documents to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks."
These documents, according to the group's letter to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee, "pointed to a long history of corruption, war crimes, and imperialism by the United States government in international dealings."
For committing the crime of telling Americans the truth about their political thugs' nasty abuses Manning has been locked in a cage since 2010 without trial.
He'll be court-martialed on "all 18 charges" for "aiding" an unspecified "enemy."
One Facebook posting observed the grotesque irony this way: "Nobel Peace Prize Nominee held in prison by Nobel Peace Prize Winner's Administration. If I weren't so sad, I'd laugh about that..."
As for WikiLeaks, founder Julian Assange, who posted the truth online for all the world to see, is still fighting in the UK Supreme Court against extradition to Sweden where he faces what many libertarians suspect are conveniently contrived rape charges designed to discredit him and shut him up.
"In relation to the United States," he responded, "we'll have to wait for the revolution."
Meanwhile, Anonymous, a "loose-knit hacking group" that once involved Julian Assange, recently intercepted a "sensitive" conference call between government secrecy enforcers FBI and Scotland Yard and posted it on YouTube.
Anonymous, unsurprisingly called "a nuisance" by Mainstream media member CNNMoney, joined hacktivist group LulzSec in calling for a boycott of PayPal in July for working with the FBI to block credit card payments supporting WikiLeaks.
And not to be outdone in the cover-up business, the CIA told a judge that they shouldn't be compelled to release the truth about the 1961 Bay of Pigs debacle under a Freedom of Information Act because the truth would "Confuse the Public."
While it may be true that much of "The Public" is just too dumb to understand the truth it's becoming apparent that people are slowly waking up.
After all, more and more of "The Public" are listening to the libertarian message and coming to recognize the perpetual lies of Big Government.
They can't crush the truth forever.
