Response to msanthrope (Reply #164)

169. So once again you make an assertion and when you can't back it up, you

resort once again to not responding.

Talk about laughing.

For the record and for those reading, which doesn't include Treestar who apparently doesn't read my comments, just the handle:

I love DU!

A recap of the actual discussion in this thread: (psst, Treestar this is for you also)

In response to an assertion that Manning did not choose a legal route to report war crimes, I pointed out that he most definitely did do so.

He took his oath of office seriously and after becoming aware of War Crimes he reported them to his Superior Officers. They ignored him. Leading him to the decision he finally made.

With that out of the way, msanthrope apparently wanted us to believe that 'legal' meant using the Whistle Blowers Protection Act. That did make me, and I'm sure many others, laugh considering how Whistle Blowers are treated in this country.

So I requested an example of how many Whistle Blowers had been protected under that Act over the past few decades basically to point out why no intelligent person, such as Manning, would choose that route.

As expected the only example, and a poor one at that, msanthrope could come up with was from decades ago, she named Ellsberg (who I believe would disagree as he has stated that he was persecuted like Manning). That caused me to rest MY case as it demonstrated why Manning did not take msanthrope's 'advice'.

Treestar apparently not having read the thread, in an ironic ad hom attack, 'accused' ME of having claimed that Manning DID use the Whistle Blowers Act proving without a doubt that he did not read even the comment I directed to him. Since I actually argued as to why he DID NOT use it.

So that is where we are other than the mysterious claim by msanthrope above about some assertion she claims I made, aside from the ones I actually I did make I am assuming, but has refused to tell me what it is.

The games people play when the facts are inconvenient. It is always instructive.
