Trump announced today he is considering offering pardons to war criminals, this would seem amusing if not for the circumstances. To say this adds insult to injury for Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange would be a understatement and total contempt to those who believe in the old fashion concept of telling the truth. But a question we must all ask ourselves is what part of justice and freedom of the press is significant if criminal actions go unpunished and the messengers get shot and we say nothing and allow it to happen . This announcement today is the shape of things to come or perhaps the shape of things that have already happened. Food for thought, in Germany the Nazies never committed a single crime under German law written by Nazies.
