    This ‘incident’ (this is what we call multiple murder these days?) was what first alerted me to the shocking psychotic behaviour of some members of the US forces, and I thanked the heavens for Bradley Manning. There have been many other shocking ‘incidents’ since, but Bradley Manning raised my sensitivities to what was going on in actions that were supposedly to promote ‘democracy’ and ‘freedom’, ha ha. I have watched BBC2’s ‘Wikileaks: the secrets of a superpower’ (Part 1) in which Bradley and Wikileaks were linked, and quite frankly can see no reason to call Bradley a traitor, as one vicious interviewee commented. Bradley enlightened. He showed us the real world, a contrast to the make-believe that is usually foisted upon us minions. If the sanctimonious pestilential jellyfish called The So-Called-Free Press printed the cables that came into their hands, why are they not indicted too? They need not have published any of them. Full marks that they did publish, initially. Zeros for cowardly back-pedalling. Seeing and hearing the ‘incident’ in New Baghdad makes you very conscious of who the real heros are – who you want to cheer and give a medal to. It sure ain’t those who, yellow to the core, shot at sitting ducks, nor to those who supported those cowards after the event by doing, er, precisely nothing. Bradley, if I may so put it, is the Galileo of Intelligence. Yes, a GI First Class.

    Any chance of a showing of Jim Spione’s film in London?

    Incidentally, for a truly vomit-inducing read, try this heap of sh*te, from Obama no less, praising to the skies the US intervention in Iraq: http://warisacrime.org/​content/obama-declares-war-​iraq-honorable-success-2-​weeks-early-april-fools-day

    Yes, the Director Jim Spione will probably be in London in May/June and there should be an opportunity to organise film screenings/speaker events with him. So if you know of an organisation that might be interested in hosting such an event, contact Jim at morninglightfilms@msn.com.

    I don’t know of anywhere definite, but possibilities might include the Frontline Club (events@frontlineclub.com), Stop the War (office@stopwar.org.uk) and Justice Not Vengeance (info@j-n-v.org).
