A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

If you think "Hitlery" is ANY better, you are very seriously deluded! She is JUST as evil as ObamaCON is! They are BOTH, as well as "Hitlery's" husband, "BubbaCON Bill", creations of "al-CIA-duh(!)" and the elitist, globalist oligarchy that are intentionally destroying the U.S. and the world, eradicating all True Liberty(ies) and Freedom(s), doing away with all national sovereignty and independence, including the independence and sovereignty of the U.S., and bringing the U.S. and the world under completely unjust, tyrannical and treasonous one-world, global government(ance ) and enslavement!

So, if you vote for ANY such people, you are complicit in their mass-murder and treason! Wake up and completely face the corporate-fasci sm that have completely taken over and are totally destroying the U.S. and the entire world, stop voting for ANY of these sociopaths and psychopaths, and entirely stop being complicit in their most insane of all evil(s) [and/or most evil of all insanity(ies)]! Otherwise, it is just more madness, and you are part of the madness!... (Continued below.)

(Continued from above.) ...[And I'm NOT just talking to you, "MinMouse"; I'm talking to ALL those who think like yourself, and/or who aren't completely facing the corporate-fasci sm and its globalist, evil minions who are seeking to totally subjugate and control the entire world and everyone in it without any True Freedom(s) and/or Liberty(ies) whatsoever!]

Also, if "you" (as in, again, all those who think that way) think "Hitlery" isn't a phony like ObamaCON, which she most definitely is, and just as much so as he is, you are (all) also very seriously deluded!

Let keep remembering that the bulk (all?) of the material leaked by Manning were available to 500,000 people with the appropriate security clearances. This raises two question in my mind:
(1) How smart is it for the government to share supposedly sensitive material with that many people and to expect it never to be leaked?
(2) If something is OK to be seen by half a million Americans, why is it being kept secret from the rest of us?
This WikiLeaks 'crisis' is not about leaks; it is really about how our government handles its diplomatic secrets. Clearly the current methods are out of date.

I should add that it is a relief to know that Manning is being treated more humanely.

Let's just hope that he has been placed with some of the kinder and gentler prisoners.

Aaron, while I feel your statement was meant to be positive, there is no humanity in any prison. The boy should not be there to start with. I love your statement that there were 500.000 opportunities for the data to be leaked.
I too wonder why there are so many secrets. This reminds me of the society of secrets in the old USSR that Americans used to sneer at. Did all those old Bolsheviks just move across the pond?
