One of the first things I saw this morning was a tweet from The Nation’s Greg Mitchell about a leak of the audio of Bradley Manning’s testimony from his pre-trial hearing held a couple of weeks ago.
Just out: Audio of Bradley Manning’s court statement, one hour long, leaked and now published:bit.ly/W57hPk

A leak of the leaker. Perfect.
I followed this link to the Freedom of the Press Foundation page that published the audio, along with the YouTube video (below) I shared on the show this morning, and an explanation of why they posted it all. When I first clicked, the page wouldn’t load. Perhaps it was just slammed by too many people trying to get on… or not. I don’t know, but it seems to be loading just fine.
and watch this film that includes the portion of his testimony in which Manning describes the “Collateral Murder” video and why he felt he had to let everyone see it.
Watch, listen, and decide for yourself…
Howie Klein of DownWithTyranny and the Blue America PAC joined me to talk politics — everything from Bob Ney’s allegations about John Boehner and the fact that a challenger has already stepped up for 2014, to the New Dems and why we should be wary, to Paul Ryan’s fall from being one of the “serious” people and more.
After news from the Talk Radio News Service, it was time for Laffy!
