8:05 AP story on Quantico rally today. Press release from organizers on Quantico action: "Daniel Ellsberg, the man who blew the whistle by leaking the Pentagon Papers, and Retired Colonel Ann Wright, were arrested today with at least thirty-one others outside the gates of the Quantico Marine base in Triangle, Virginia. More than three hundred veterans and supporters rallied across the street from the base to protest the treatment of PFC Bradley Manning. Ellsberg and Wright were arrested as they approached the gates of the base in an attempt to deliver a letter to Base Commander Daniel J Choike. They, along with a military mother and three other veterans had just laid flowers at the Iwo Jima Memorial in front of the gates.
8:00 More on worldwide Manning protests today. Video of angry speech at The Hague
7:35 In usual crowd-sourcing mode: I am finishing my new book on the Manning case and detention tonight (to be published as e-book later this week and then in print couple weeks later), and haven’t quite decided on a title. Vote for your favorite or suggest another (remember, it’s about both the alleged leaks, reactions, and his incarceration). Email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
