  1. He’s exactly right. The American people are the enemy of the murderous psychopaths who have hijacked the U.S. government.

  2. Although I usually look things in different way to Colbert, I still think he sometime makes some nice arguments in certain topics. This time he made a powerful argument about the stupidity about the verdict and the judge, not aiding the enemy but convicted with Espionage charge.

  3. we are in a dangerous time in this USA as

    we have a government of the government and not a government of the people and how can a man be esponage
    and not having a enemy and it appears like the enemy
    is the US government as it can trump up charges better
    than old Russia

  4. Congress never declared war. So how is it constitutionally possible to consider a charge of aiding the enemy? It was thown out for the wrong reason. The resolution authorizing force that Bush passed, did not define “the enemy”. I’m a conservative christian who would never vote democratic, but Manning and Snowden are heroes in my book.

  5. The government is out of control though it has achieved critical mass. It is like overheated nuclear reactor that can’t be cooled. The fed gov. is the enemy.
