Colonel Denise Lind, “judge” of the court martial of PFC Bradley Manning, infamously and illegally ruled that the US government could proceed with its show trial despite the fact that it had held Manning for more than four times the absolute legal maximum time prior to arraigning him.
Then she infamously and illegally ruled that the government could change the charges and introduce new witnesses after both prosecution and defense had rested.
Now, she has infamously and illegally overruled the defense’s objections to the use of illegal secret testimony against Manning.
Question: If Manning isn’t allowed to violate the law, why is Lind?
Answer: Because the law doesn’t apply to the political class. The law only applies to its victims.
