The current administration is time and time again revealing
to the world that they have no back bone. That they are not the type of
government that will go after foreigners for their attacks on the United
States. That you can bomb us and release our top secret documents for all the
world to see and we will not move against them to serve justice. All they have
to worry about is a mild prison sentence and then they are out back to doing
the same things they were before, attacking America.
The latest example is Julian Assange and his website
Wikileaks. They obtained hundreds of thousands of top secret government
documents from an Army private (more on him later) and released them on his
website (in conjunction with the New York Times). And this wasn’t even the
first time he did this. AND he even warned us that he was going to do it and
nothing was done to attempt to stop him. The first time he released these type
of documents was in October, and nothing was done. His website wasn’t shut
down, no noise was made about pursuing him as a terrorist guilty of espionage.
Nothing. This time he releases documents that damage the reputation of people
in power and now we want to try and pursue him. But are we standing up strong enough
against him, absolutely not! We are still being weak and showing a lack of
conviction. AG Holder said they would investigate if he broke any laws and if
he did that they would then move on arresting him. That’s it? You don’t know
without investigating that this is an act of terror against the United States?
Embarrassing. Julian Assange is putting American lives and the lives of many of
our informants in the Middle East at risk, major risk, and this is the best we
can come up with. He should move to the top of the list of people that need to
be brought down, we should be moving swiftly and firmly to make his arrest and
putting him on trial for everything possible. And as for Pvt. Bradley Manning,
he needs to put on trial and the government needs to seek the death penalty.
What he did cannot be perceived as a small offense, people around the world
have to see and understand that America will not tolerate these acts of terror
against our country. Pvt. Manning would most likely not have done what he did
if he knew he would be facing the death penalty.
Until we take a firm stand against the people who commit
acts of terror against our country then they will continue to do so. We need
our government to bring our country back to a place of respect in the world. The
world no longer respects us and they certainly do not even fear us. Our
countries leadership continues to make it more and more difficult to feel proud
to be an American because they apologize for everything that other
people/countries do to us. Personally I look forward to the day when I can say
“I am proud to be an American” and have it mean exactly that instead of it
meaning that I have no compassion for the plight of the rest of the world and
the struggles of those discriminated against. Because that’s what our current
administration has made it into meaning.
