Freedom of the press?

26 07 2010

 

One of the foundations that our country was built on was freedom of the press. Aparrently that doesnt apply if you piss off the military, or the government. Wiki leaks has been shut down in the United states. This was due to the release of the Infamous black hawk video in which US soldiers brutaly murdered innocent civilians in Iraq from a blackhawk while joking and laughing about it. The government said that wikileaks is putting  National security at risk. What? How is that a threat to national  security? The truth is that Military recruit ment was already at an all time low, and this footage would discourage  people from enlisting even more than before it’s release. 

  The soldiers who commited this Atrocity were not repimanded or put on trial. Instead they arrested and court martialed the man who leaked the video. Why? because it was clasified infomation. But why was it clasified? Because it was the truth, Because it made the military look bad. Well, if the shoe fits. President Barrack Obush, and his administration are going after wistle blowers and truth tellers at an alarming rate. McChrystal  was fired after an interview in the rolling stone was published. They claim it was because of insults directed at Obama and his cabinet members. But it was really over the fact that he said that the war in Afghanistan was un-winable, which was a truth that had already been stated by the UN.  Another person in the government had to appologize for her statement in which she said that Israel should get out of Palestine. What Kind of country do we live in where telling the truth is a crime. Iam so dissapointed in Obama because I really believed his lies, I Tought he would change things for the better. I thought the bush administration would end with the bush administration. I was Wrong.
