Phyllis Bennis: “Wars Needs Secrets!”


By BillyClub - Posted on 08 August 2010

A spirited rally was held in a park, on Sunday afternoon, August 8, 2010, in the town of Quantico, VA, in support of Private Bradley Manning. Currently, he is incarcerated in a prison at the Quantico Marine Base. It surrounds the town, which borders on the Potomac River. Private Manning is charged with a releasing a video which showed, “the killing of civilians and journalist in Iraq,” by U.S. forces, according to a press release of one of the event’s sponsors. One of the speakers was Phyllis Bennis. She is a journalist, and a peace and justice activist. Ms. Bennis said: “Wars Need Secrets. Illegal wars keep illegal secrets...Democracy needs whistleblowers.” Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CODEPINK, served as the moderator for the rally, which was entitled: “Free Bradley Manning. ”For background on the “alleged whistleblower Bradley Manning,” see: BradleyManning.
