For having the courage to come forward and expose the drone program for the indiscriminate murder that it is, 4 vets are under attack from the government they once served.

Much worse, +Lee Meade​​.

It isn't even as if these characters have leaked sensitive data. Rather they have just made the drone project look bad.

This is the general attitude of the three-letter agencies, and I am sure that the same attitude applies in this case: “any employees and contractors who damage an entity’s reputation, be it government or business, by exposing inside information should be considered insider threats, as they ‘would be in the business world.’”

This might be good for bypassing political censorship, as well as that of the ??AA.

Ants are more effective than pesticides.
Farmers who have harnessed the collective power of the humble ant have proved more successful at controlling the pests that ravage their crops than those using chemicals, according to new research.

Policies, not purchases are what makes the difference.

Brazil shows the way.
Consumer boycotts don't stop sweatshops any more. This might.

Only known photo of Earth taken from an Apollo Lunar Module window
http://i.imgur.com/if5tkUU.jpg
While surviving in their "lifeboat" LM, the Apollo 13 astronauts took this astonishing photograph of the Earth in April 1970, not knowing whether they would ever return home.

‘One senior Pentagon official, who was asked to explain when a journalist might be deemed an “unprivileged belligerent,” pointed to the assassination of the Afghan military commander Ahmad Shah Massoud in September 2001. That example is preposterous because Mr. Massoud was killed by assassins who posed as television journalists and hid explosives in a camera. They were not, in fact, journalists.’
The Defense Department’s new manual on the law of war could severely hinder the work of journalists covering armed conflicts.
