Response to Fumesucker (Reply #24)

31. Let's see. Craig Murray thinks Janis Karpinski and Scott Ritter were punished for whistleblowing

There's no indication Janis Karpinski blew a whistle: I posted a link upthread in which she says she had no idea what was going on

I also posted three links about the Ritter prosecution. It was a local prosecution, based on a Pennsylvania sting, and Ritter's defense that he thought he was talking to an adult pretending to be a child was undermined by two sets of 2001 records from stings in New York showing that Ritter had twice traveled to meet someone who had self-identified online as a minor. I might have some issues with the 2010 prosecution of Ritter, but he agreed to the basic material facts, and I can't see any reason to think that the two 2001 New York stings and the 2010 Pennsylvania sting had anything to do with each other or anything to do with targeting Ritter for some activity in 1998 or earlier

So it seems Craig Murray is not being very careful with the facts about Karpinski or Ritter

In response to my posting the factual links regarding Ritter, I was told I didn't care if the Bush thugs ever came to justice. Well, frankly, I don't see how supporting Assange's ridiculous posturing in the embassy does anything to bring the Bush thugs to justice, either
