    US State Dept spokesman resigns

    US state department spokesman Philip Crowley has resigned over his comment on the army's treatment of an American soldier suspected of leaking diplomatic cables to whistleblowing website WikiLeaks.

    Crowley reportedly said at a university in Massachusetts that the treatment of jailed former intelligence analyst Bradley Manning was "ridiculous and counter-productive and stupid", Xinhua reported.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a statement Sunday: "It is with regret that I have accepted the resignation of Philip J. Crowley as assistant secretary of state for public affairs."

    If Bradley Manning was a member of any Middle Eastern military, by now he would have been tried (maybe), convicted, and executed for treason.

    Reading comprehension is not your forte. The topic is about spokesman resigns. Here in US it is vey important that you learn to follow instruction. When the topic is about spokesman resigns, you talk about that, and not how it is in some Muslim country or the mating habits of high school graduates working dead end jobs supporting the Tea party.

    Here in the United States it is more important to understand WHY something happened. The spokesman resigned because he said something stupid in support of a traitor.

    As far as "learn[ing] to follow instructions," here in the United States there is a thing called "freedom of speech." Perhaps you thought you were in charge or something. :rofl:
