Headlined to None 9/30/12

It's no secret. Obama officials want blood. They want Assange, Manning and other whistleblowers hung out to dry. They want no interference in imperial plans abroad or repressive homeland ones.

Doing so makes perpetrators vulnerable. Hegemons show no mercy. US ruthlessness is well known. It's longstanding. It's worse now than ever. Millions of corpses and the largest prison gulag in the world attest to is viciousness.

Aiding or communicating with the enemy charges are fraudulent. Nonetheless, Bradley Manning faces one count under UCMJ's Article 104. He's also charged with numerous other UCMJ violations.

Washington wants him imprisoned for life or perhaps dead. Assange is likely targeted the same way. Habeas, due process, and  overall judicial fairness are dead letters. Hanging military and right-wing court judges show no mercy.

Kangaroo justice is policy. That's how police states work. Whatever Washington says goes. It doesn't matter what's true or false, right or wrong. 

Fairness isn't in America's vocabulary. Victims are guilty by accusation. Manning, Assange, other whistleblowers, and targeted supporters haven't a chance. America's framers created the ways and means. 

Modern-day scoundrels could teach them a thing or two. America was never beautiful. Now it's unsafe to live in.
