    1. Ok, I know I'm a broken record, but

    I’d love to have a list of those crimes, but why do I have to sit through a 30 min. video to get it?

    I realize these people need to make a living, but different people take in info in different ways . . . .

      3. I think you missed it.

      30 seconds in, it shows the article he gets the information from. Here is a link.

      http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/08/21/what-bradley-manning-revealed/

      I think this has everything he talked about. Hope you like it.

        5. get this:

        Secretary General’s DNA.

        According to the “National Humint Collection Directive,” a secret document that was signed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and published by WikiLeaks, US diplomats were authorized to collect “biometric” and other sensitive information from top UN officials as well as UN representatives from other nations. The leaked documents show that “biometric data” specifically included samples of the officials’ DNA, among other forms of personally identifying information. They also ordered diplomats to collect credit card information and secure passwords. These activities contravene the 1946 UN Convention (9).

      4. I agree with you. I don't have time to sit through a video. Here's an article

      Somehow, I don’t think this is anywhere close to a complete account, but here’s an analysis with footnotes of source articles for further reading:  http://www.counterpunch.org/2013/08/21/what-bradley-manning-revealed/

      Official policy to ignore coalition and contractor child trafficking and torture, and murders of journalists in Iraq and Afghanistan

      Hillary’s State Dept rehired Blackwater despite contractor convictions for multiple crimes

      Hillary’s State Dept scuttled minimum wage law in Haiti opposed by US corporations such as Nike – $5/day.

      US intel systematically bugged the UN, State Dept personnel enlisted as spies on UN delegations

      Guantanamo prison has held mostly innocent people and low-level operatives

      US drones killed dozens of civilians in Yemen – US pressured Yemen’s President to lie that casualties were caused by his own Air Force.

      Japanese and US gov’ts warned in advance about vulnerabilities of Fukushima to seismic/tsunamis – both hid the information.

      Known Egyptian torturers received training from the FBI in Quantico, Virginia.

    7. I took the time to watch the whole vid & believe me, it's worth it!

    And you know why?  Because Jimmy Dore has a CONSCIENCE and speaks of these horrors that our government has committed – and that Chelsea Manning revealed – with appropriate emotion, anger and outrage.  Just reading this stuff is one thing.  But having a person of Jimmy Dore’s humanity chronicle these revelations helps to break through our numbness.  And who among us has not felt numbness – disempowerment, depression, the need for escape, the need to forget and “get on with our lives,” if not nausea and vomiting – when confronted with the realities of our government and the horrors COMMITTED IN OUR NAME?

    The wonder of Jimmy Dore is that he keeps the flame burning!  He focuses on what’s important and re-awakens us from the sickness of it all, from the despair of it all and from our self-involvement, which is perhaps necessary, given the load we have to bear, but cannot be permitted to dull our consciences and put us back to sleep.  Yeah, do get some sleep, friends.  Do take care of yourselves, especially if you are involved in actively opposing war, torture and massive theft.  It’s not all up to you!  We need to deal with this collectively – as Bernie Sanders so often said.  You can’t do it alone.  If you freak out or go numb, take a break.  And then listen to this great human being, Jimmy Dore, speak the truth – that beautiful rare thing.

      8. I wish we could rec posts

      And you’re right, it’s easy to get numb to absurd level of evil we are seeing…but I think for some of us the numbness comes from trying to stop this at the time and having been stabbed in the back by the people who were supposed to be representing us.

      11. I appreciate that.

      It’s just that for me, the emotions can be overwhelming, so I prefer to take in the facts in in as succinct and cut-and-dried a form as possible (and focus my energy on trying to deploy them somehow).
