After nearly ten months pretty much in the dark -- often literally, in near-solitary confinement in the Quantico brig -- Pvt. Bradley Manning finally received massive mainstream media attention last week. It's about time people knew his story.
I interviewed Rosentha on his assessment of Obama's foreign policy, the Middle East and North Africa protests, the WikiLeaks revelations, and more.
Many are questioning why the Obama administration is covertly pushing for Bangladesh to reverse course and acquiesce to an internationally condemned open-pit mine that will displace an estimated 100,000-200,000 villagers.
Preble and I spoke about the implications of the WikiLeaks revelations, U.S. leadership in the age of globalization, excess defense spending and international development, and the future of U.S. diplomatic engagement.
The Obama administration must back up its promises with concrete steps to investigate all senior civilian and military government officials who authorized and facilitated torture.

The truth can be painful. P.J. Crowley spoke the truth, and now he is out of a job. And the President, well, he says he will look into Manning's treatment.
I think I've finally put my finger on what exactly bothers me so much about the forced resignation of P.J. Crowley from his position as State Department spokesman.
When we heard that P.J. Crowley had resigned as spokesman for the State Department after criticizing the Pentagon's treatment of suspected whistleblower Army private Bradley Manning, my CODEPINK colleagues and I knew we had to respond.
While Crowley may have already lost the admiration of the administration before his comments, his accelerated ouster certainly sends a message to other government officials who may disagree with the Obama administration.
For a country that relies so heavily on the power of a strong central leader, Indonesia is showing worrying signs of a retreat from democracy.
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley was forced to resign for his frank comments about the treatment of Bradley Manning. The question is, why would the administration do something so "ridiculous, counterproductive, and stupid"?
It's ironic that PJ Crowley went to MIT to talk about the power of new media on foreign policy issues only to find that a blog posting of his remarks ended his career as America's top foreign policy spokesman.
We wait and we watch as the U.S. government defends itself from whistle blowers by torturing them in plain view. What stronger evidence that there is much to blow the whistle on?
Cyberspace is "not a war zone." Scripting a cinematic showdown, where a digital Wyatt Earp loads his pistol with ones and zeroes and blows away the bad guys at the Cyber OK Corral, is terribly misleading.
