Barack Obama is Commander in Chief. The actions of these sick bastards are his responsibility. Instead of fulfilling his campaign promises to close Guantanamo Bay, he has imported their sadistic tactics to American shores so Bank of American can have something to pin on Julian Assange and WikiLeaks. He has turned his Justice Department into corporate America’s consiglieri.

The contrast between the NYT and the Guardian is instructive: the NYT sent over every cable they planned to publish. Whereas the Guardian refused to specify which cables they’d publish.
Under cover of off the record meetings with top national security officials, the NYT collaborated with the government, at the least on damage control, if not their investigation of WikiLeaks. The Guardian, by contrast, was unwilling to do more than warn State what general topics they’d cover on a day to day basis.

Bradley became excited and engaged, however, when David mentioned the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.
