Whistleblower Maltreatment Under Obama

Issue Bush Obama Change?
Whistleblowers Bad Worse

Without whistleblowers, Iraq probably would have granted Obama's request to keep our troops there. Citation.

Even Obama's former con-law professor condemns Manning's treatment:
More than 250 of America's most eminent legal scholars have signed a letter protesting against the treatment in military prison of the alleged WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning, contesting that his "degrading and inhumane conditions" are illegal, unconstitutional and could even amount to torture.

The list of signatories includes Laurence Tribe, a Harvard professor who is considered to be America's foremost liberal authority on constitutional law. He taught constitutional law to Barack Obama and was a key backer of his 2008 presidential campaign.

Tribe joined the Obama administration last year as a legal adviser in the justice department, a post he held until three months ago.

He told the Guardian he signed the letter because Manning appeared to have been treated in a way that "is not only shameful but unconstitutional" as he awaits court martial in Quantico marine base in Virginia.


Worse because Bush was an idiot, Obama is educated and yet still acts like a Napoleon.
