Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg defended Julian Assange and his alleged
source Bradley Manning as "patriots" at a D.C. protest Thursday organized
by Veterans For Peace. Ellsberg, 79, called terrorism charges against
them "absurd and slanderous" before heading to the White House to be
chained to its gate.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
