If you've not heard, Bradley Manning, the man responsible for leaking the Collateral Murder video, as well as a huge number of diplomatic documents to Wikileaks, has gone to jail for whistleblowing.

Honestly, does anyone in the UK or US really fear terrorists? Because there's only so much a terrorist can do, and if they live to tell about it, they're gonna get hunted down by our governments and brought to justice.
But if a government decides it wants to detain you indefinitely without charge, disallow peaceful protest, or be complicit in obtaining evidence through torture, who brings them to justice? Who's going to put them in jail? And we've already seen that western governments consider their own people to be "the enemy", after all, that's who they're spying on! And one by one, they're going nuts catching anyone who's trying to call them out on it, calling it "a slap in the face" that Russia offered Snowden asylum.

And then we have our own president, selling weapons and tech to terrorists, saying he's just helping them liberate.
Because beheading helpless Catholic priests who did nothing to you is so very liberating.....
Oh, and our government has decided they're going to spy on our internet. Ya know. To keep us "safe".

"It could be worse" doesn't really stop a bad status quo from being bad.
