Who would see KC as the center of a 100-mile circle that's a hotbed of militarism and nuke-production?! Well, KC and sites nearby are home base for:

  • producing non-nuclear, essential parts for nuclear weapons (in KC, Mo.);

  • imprisoning Bradley Manning, whistleblower charged with leaking info to Wikileaks; and

  • teaching Midwest folks how to operate drones and to kill people in Afghanistan and other countries (the teaching occurs at Whiteman AFB, near Warrensburg, Mo.).

Bradley Manning has been imprisoned in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., but is now at Fort Meade in Maryland. He may return to Fort Leavenworth after his court-martial.
