August 21, 2013

Bradley Manning is sentenced to thirty five years in prison, why Manning has already faced torture and cruel and unusual punishment, why the Manning trial was about intimidation, how the Obama Administration protects torturers and ruthlessly prosecuted Manning.

On The Better Half: Fukushima power plant still leaking deadly radiation into the global environment, the SEC will now force Wall Street banks to admit wrong doing, Obama pushes regulators to speed up implementation of financial reform, Gay journalist speaks out on the attack on Gay rights on Russian television, Random Rush and your calls and IMs.

And keep the conversation going on our morning thread
