HBGary Exposes Wikileaks/Manning FUD operatives?

A twitter war erupted last month regarding the treatment of Bradley Manning at Quantico, with his advocates @ggreenwald and @janehamsher accused of being publicity-seekers, and @Shoq accused of being a political operative. This war has a new dimension given the exposure of the #hbgary #boa contract to sow dissent amongst #wikileaks supporters by attacking @ggreenwald. Hmm...

@emptywheel Yeah - clearly I place professional preservation before cause: that's why I'm a WL defender - & media critic. So good for career

@boloboffin @Shoq @janehamsher RT: But he's not above the tactic.| the tendency to want to add the innuendo is tempting but shld be avoided.
Joseph Nobles @BoloBoffin
.@Shoq was right to point out @janehamsher smearing him because she had no evidence to counter his claims. But he's not above the tactic.

@aigeanta If anything, the @Shoq @janehamsher war drives more traffic #fdl's way. But try telling him he's helping solidify Jane's base.
Joseph Nobles @BoloBoffin
@aigeanta Same here. They have a point, but to belabor it the way they do... And none of them can take what they dish out.

RT @aigeanta: @Shoq i agree w/ reader who thinks ur @janehamsher CT post is the "dumbest piece of shit writin… (cont) http://deck.ly/~f0nhi
@HeferDust
RT @aigeanta: @Shoq u're the railing one. i was just questioning ur motives/srcs, as u ask of others. u can dish it out but u can't take it?
Joseph Nobles @BoloBoffin
@vdaze If you and @Shoq hate @janehamsher, fine. Hate on. But minimizing prisoner abuse issues to do it is pretty damned low.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta Manning will have this trial, and you will move on to the next government conspiracy you canrail at. Enjoy!
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta Are persuaded of the facts as a defense attorney and two bloggers presented them. You have no interest in challeging them.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta You've been "told" there is injustice, and admit to believing it's there to be found anyway. So why have this discussion?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta Their motive is to follow the rules as can be read in navy manuals for past 30 years. Mine is call out hack reporting, anywhere.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta So since you feel government is always looking to fool you, is it possible you've risen to a chance to be right?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta So feel that all those engaged in POI policy and application, used throughout our miliary, are all guilty of torture?
Aigeanta @aigeanta
@boloboffin yeah, i'm in no way a @janehamsher acolyte. i don't even read #fdl. just saw this spat btwn @shoq and her + @ggreenwald. hmm.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta We also now know that Manning has a history of mental instability. They will ensure he gets to his trial.
Joseph Nobles @BoloBoffin
@Shoq Do You. Have. Any Evidence. That Manning's Lawyer. Is Lying?@aigeanta
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@aigeanta Everything you are citing comes from his attorney. It's all spin that makes you feel empathy for contexts unfamiliar to you.
Joseph Nobles @BoloBoffin
@Shoq Do you have any actual evidence that Manning's lawyer is lying? @aigeanta
