80-Year-Old ‘Pentagon Papers’ Hero Arrested At White House For Protesting U.S Torture of Bradley Manning

While your country was starting another war and also still losing two other wars and also ignoring some of our closer Arab Dictatorship Allies as they massacred their own people, 80-year-old Daniel Ellsberg peacefully protested outside the White House on the eighth (!) anniversary of America’s occupation of Iraq. And he was handcuffed and hauled away by the federal police, because why not? All he ever did was expose the lies of several U.S. administrations regarding another bloody lost cause (our war against the Vietnamese). Back then, of course, the president specifically ordered Ellsberg’s assassination — and then, on second or third paranoid/drunken thought, decided to just expose Ellsberg as a crazy person, by ordering the White House burglary of Ellsberg’s psychiatrist’s office. Good times!

So don’t go misconstrue this, America’s Enemies in your own Opium/Allah empire-crushing Central Asian Mad Max-land. Be mindful of the intricacies!
