- Private First Class Bradley Manning faces twenty-two “new” charges, including “aiding the enemy” and probably “complaining too much about being tortured, what a weenie.” (Army people refused to identify the “enemy” Manning is allegedly aiding.

- A freedom-hating Pakistani judge ordered that the trial of Raymond Davis should proceed, even though Davis is “a respectable diplomat” or whatever Barack Obama and The New York Times called him. Davis has yet to be formally charged, and the “immunity” issue is still being considered by the Lahore High Court. [AP]
