02/10/11 – Chase Madar – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 10, 2011 | Interviews

Chase Madar, member of the National Lawyers Guild, discusses his mock ‘Opening Statement for the Defense of Bradley Manning, Soldier and Patriot;’ Manning’s disillusionment with US ‘democracy building’ in Iraq, that amounted to repressing free speech and rounding up critics of government for detention and torture; a list of his alleged leaks, from the Collateral Murder video to the State Department ‘Cablegate,’ that Americans have the right to know about; the obligation of soldiers to take action against inhumane treatment; the lack of evidence that Manning and Julian Assange have ‘blood on their hands;’ and the long American tradition of patriotic whistleblowers from within the military.
