  1. One down, many, many, many more to go. I’d start on the US war crimes next, then the UK. That will cover the worst of them.

  2. David McBride should become PM of Australia, Julian Assange should be appointed to a position in his cabinet, Edward Snowden should become POTUS and Jeremy Corbyn should become PM of the UK. Chelsea Manning should be given a job in the Snowden Administration. Too bad that won’t happen.
