The Army has formally charged Bradley Manning for allegedly releasing the Wikileaks video depicting US Apache pilots gleefully slaughtering Iraqi civilians and a Reuters journalist in 2007.  Among the cornucopia of charges leveled against Manning, most relate to the release of classified information.   The following wording stands out in the official press release, emphasis added:

One specification of violating United States Code Title 18, Section 793, for communicating, transmitting and delivering national defense information to an unauthorized source;

I am hard-pressed to understand how this nation is made safer when documentation of unrepentant, unholy murder is suppressed, but I suppose from the Army’s perspective the video truly is a “national defense” issue.  Look at all the national resources being expended defending the three-year-old, cavalier slaughter of innocents.

    “So I will come near to you for judgment. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive aliens of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty. Malachi 3:5
