Unfortunately, our congress no longer represents us. The states have no representation at all any longer, remember that was the function of the senate. The house was to represent the people, but they only worry about saying and doing what they must to get re-elected. We need term limits. Even better would be a "national draft" to pick members of congress, with terms still limited.

I think the question is, "is this the only way for americans to get the truth??? someone has to provide us with classified info????

CHARGE I: VIOLATION OF THE UCMJ, ARTICLE 92
SPECIFICATION 1: In that Private First Class Bradley E. Manning, U.S. Army, did, between on or about 19 November 2009 and on or about 27 May 2010, at or near Contingency Operating Station Hammer, Iraq, violate a lawful general regulation, to wit: Paragraph 4-6(k), Army Regulation 25-2, dated 24 October 2007, by wrongfully introducing a classified video of a military operation filmed at or near Baghdad, Iraq, on or about 12 July 2007, onto his personal computer, a non-secure information system.
Thanks for the reply. It's starting to look like conspiracy/alternative news sites are the only way this information will be made public -- and sadly I don't see that lasting a whole lot longer. Congress has limited power and are scrutinized if they such as sneeze. Freedom of information seems to grow more scarce by the year.
Nobody on this continent can keep a secret except George Bush 41 and Dick Cheney and they are not talking.
what enemys??? who's cheering??? have you even read any of the releases??? please, do tell, who or what has been compromised??
Everybody is cheering for these enemies of the United States for one simple reason.
if i knew what you were talking about, i'd respond to this one, but i'm lost???
We consistently elect idiots into congress who are then appointed to oversight committees and they have absolutely no idea of what they are doing. I think of the congressman from Georgia (Hank Johnson) who thought another 8000 Marines would cause the island of Guam to capsize. Those are the types of people who get elected. If we had a competent congress with competent oversight committees, we wouldn't even want these traitors to walk around free. Instead of cheering for those who want to see our country fail, how about a little common sense when you walk into the voting booth?
they diagree with it, because it's ILLEGAL"
I am not saying my country right or wrong but I am saying nobody has the right to undermine our policy just because they disagree with it. That puts everyone in danger.
There are other ways to correct the problem instead of breaching our national security. [

Your same government labels innocent US citizens as terrorists because they disagree with the government.
'That puts everyone in danger' Who does it put in danger? What does it put in danger??? Please be specific.
''There are other ways to correct the problem instead of breaching our national security.' How, specifically, has national security been breached? Please tell me.
