Trump: Americans could be tried in Guantánamo

 

This should disqualify Trump from the race immediately. He has no concept of the Constitution or the rule of law in this nation. The President is supposed to defend the Constitution, but this ass clown doesn’t give a fuck.

Laboratory lied in 95% of cases with so-called DNA matching of hair samples.

Washington Post, no less:

The Justice Department and FBI have formally acknowledged that nearly every examiner in an elite FBI forensic unit gave flawed testimony in almost all trials in which they offered evidence against criminal defendants over more than a two-decade period before 2000.

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’slargest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

Military lawyer resigns in protest of ‘show trial’ of accused 9-11 mastermind

“The U.S. government is trying to call this a fair trial, while stacking the deck so much against the defense and the accused that it can hardly be called a fair trial in any system in the world,” he said, accusing the government of staging a”show trial.”

Already, at the time when he made his discovery, Oceania was no longer at war with Eurasia, and it must have been to the agents of Eastasia that the three dead men had betrayed their country. Since then there had been other changes–two, three, he could not remember how many. Very likely the confessions had been rewritten and rewritten until the original facts and dates no longer had the smallest significance. The past not only changed, but changed continuously. What most afflicted him with the sense of nightmare was that he had never clearly understood why the huge imposture was undertaken. The immediate advantages of falsifying the past were obvious, but the ultimate motive was mysterious.

Bradley-Manning-Guilty-and-not

“The last few years have been a learning experience.”

-Pvt. Bradley Manning

“Before they exposed their victims to public trial, they deliberately set themselves to destroy their dignity. They wore them down by torture and solitude until they were despicable, cringing wretches, confessing whatever was put into their mouths, covering themselves with abuse, accusing and sheltering behind one another, whimpering for mercy. And yet after only a few years the same thing had happened over again.”

The American terror state scores a hollow poltiical PR victory, negating Bradley Manning’s heroic achievements to report WAR CRIMES BY US PERSONNEL, which have gone unpunished to this day.  Subject to harsh abuse including being kept naked in a cell for extented periods, abused, and held without trial many times beyond what is legal and Constitutional according to our own laws, the Manning show trial has culminated in this “confession.”  This political nonsense seems to be in exchange for sparing the soldier from execution.  Welcome to the new Amerika.

Manning tells court he’s ‘sorry’ for U.S. secrets breach to WikiLeaks

“I’m sorry” for giving war logs and diplomatic secrets to the WikiLeaks website three years ago, the biggest breach of classified data in the nation’s history.

Kangaroo court proceedings would not let Manning defend himself by citing International Law violations and the Nuremberg principles, enshrined in the UN Charter, which the US is a signatory to.  This clear double standard where American war criminals, including high officials, are held unaccountable while lower level soldiers are prosecuted for political theater is a stain on this nation that should disgust and outrage every single American, as it does much of the rest of the world.

Collateral Murder: US Helicopter Pilots Murdered Iraqi Civilians – Relaeassed by U.S. Army Private Bradley Manning while the US Government lied about the incident and covered it up:

 

“The great purges involving thousands of people, with public trials of traitors and thought-criminals who made abject confession of their crimes and were afterwards executed, were special show-pieces not occurring oftener than once in a couple of years. More commonly, people who had incurred the displeasure of the Party simply disappeared and were never heard of again. One never had the smallest clue as to what had happened to them.

… Very occasionally some person whom you had believed dead long since would make a ghostly reappearance at some public trial where he would implicate hundreds of others by his testimony before vanishing, this time for ever.

… He would talk with a disagreeable gloating satisfaction of helicopter raids on enemy villages, and trials and confessions of thought-criminals, the executions in the cellars of the Ministry of Love.”
