Glenn Greenwald Tears Into Toobin Over Bradley Manning (VIDEO)

Guardian journalist Glenn Greenwald faced off against CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin over the sentencing of ex-Army private Bradley Manning and his acquittal on the charge of "aiding the enemy." Greenwald pushed back on Toobin's assertions that there are ways to expose government secrets without doing what Manning (or for that matter, Edward Snowden) did, charging that Toobin and other people who supposedly love transparency find every excuse they can to attack whistleblowers.

CNN 'Legal Analyst' Toobin: Kissinger?

Has anybody else noticed the similarity between Toobin and a younger Kissinger? Glasses, the 'um, um' um' stalling, the 'Toe The Party Line' thing? That cross-eyed look? That NOSE (for God sakes)?

Except for hie Yiddish accent, he could be Kissinger's son!

Hmmm. You are right.

Probably his offspring clone.

Toobin is just awful. Spin spin spin. Even Anderson sensed it.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Glenn Greenwald and Ben Swann

Glenn Greenwald and Ben Swann should be best friends.

Yes, Sir!

And have a weekly segment together.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

No!

Keep them separate. Decentralization is key. We need multiple providers of real news.

Calm down, high-speed:

Once a week is "centralized"?

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Greenwald..

kicks ass.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Glen Does a great job of

remaining calm and not telling Tobin to go fcuk himself. When I talk with people that are so clearly in error or defend such an undefendable position as Tobin...the hardest thing for me is to do is remain focused and continue to speak as if I'm not talking to a complete and total idiot!

Meditation

Meditation helps for those situations.

Just last week, I had to deal with a brainwashed stooge repeating MSM propaganda after propaganda about NSA, Monsanto, 9/11, Iraq war, Prozac in healthcare, Boston Marathon martial law etc. And I suspected he was doing it intentionally to provoke me. Best reaction I could come up with was ignore him, but it took ENORMOUS deep breaths & patience.

Immoral funding of Military Industrial Complex by Federal Reserve and US taxation system must stop!!!! End illegal/unconstitutional wars! Preserve US currency!

I can't do it.

2 minutes in, if I'm lucky, before I have to tell someone off. Greenwald is the real deal. Hats off to him. This interview was particularly good.

This was excellent....

Cooper was an excellent mediator... by not spinning or ambushing either speaker...
he 'moved on' with the debate without 'thinking for the viewer' and by allowing equal speaking time for both.
Contrast THIS...
with how Dr. Ron Paul was treated, ambushed and belittled by the 'host' when confronting and debating with his detractors from 2008 onward.
Good job Anderson.

gotta agree

Anderson was fair and balanced here.

Thank you, Jeffrey Toobin

For playing the role of the stupid d-i-c-k.

Without that toe-to-toe this would have been a flat, uninteresting debate.

However you brought out the absurdity and utter hypocrisy that the U.S. government has devolved into... while allowing Glenn Greenwald to shine, once again -- and publicly make a complete a-s-s out of you.

Thank you, Jeffrey Toobin.

Greenwald really burned him.

Greenwald really burned him. I really have been enjoying watching Greenwald making the rounds on the various television programs in the last month or so. He really runs circles around everyone and is able to debate his points marvelously.

Toobin's egregious lie

"Daniel Ellsberg also wrote the Pentagon Papers. He disclosed what he wrote. Which is very different than Bradley Manning." - Toobin

Ellsberg did not write the Pentagon Papers in the context claimed, he "briefly" joined the project as an analyst and contributed to a small part of it. Thrity-six analysts, half active duty military officers, wrote 3,000 pages of historical summaries and the rest were 4,000 pages of government documents.

Shredded by Glenn Greenwald.

Blatant legal double standard exposed by Greenwald. This journalist knows the truth and knows how to convey it.

Greenwald is a

stud.

and a gay one! I think he is

and a gay one! I think he is one hot nerd! Hilarious how his detractors have tried to ruin his rep by revealing that he (phony outrage) once owned a gay porn site! Suddenly, sex is a sin!

I don't know who this Toobin goober is,

Glenn Greenwald deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.

And good for Andersen cooper...for all his illuminati media ties...for allowing the argument.

Greenwald won hands down.

Agreed

.

Toobin

Toobin = senior analyst (pundit) which means he is nothing but a mouth that spits his opinions that He thinks represents the general public when really their his own.

Greenwald = columnist which means his mouth spits researched objective evidence toward stories that scum like Toobin can comment on.

In other words, without Greenwald; Toobin would be without a job

His name is Edward Snowden

What is Capitalism?

what ever happened to the junior analysts?

We never hear from them anymore.
