A reminder that we will gather at the gazebo on the mall in Brunswick on Sunday, March 17 at 3 p.m. to reflect on the U.S. invasion of Iraq 10 years ago and to participate in the national debate on U.S. foreign policy.
Let’s dedicate our gathering to Bradley Manning, a young man who put his life and liberty on the line to give the world a glimpse of US foreign policy. Now, it is our job to pick up the materials Bradley has provided and work to create the better world he sought.
Manning made it clear in court that he leaked the documents to Wikileaks because he saw serious problems in US foreign policy: war crimes, criminal behavior at the highest levels up to Secretary of State Clinton, unethical behavior and bullying of other nations. Manning’s sole purpose was to “spark a domestic debate on the role of the military and our foreign policy in general.” He hoped the debate “might cause society to reevaluate the need or even the desire to engage in counterterrorism and counterinsurgency operations that ignore the complex dynamics of the people living in the affected environment every day.”
Hope to see you there,
Why have the US media shied away from covering the source of the WikiLeaks material yet gouged on his information?
