Contrast and Compare

The Times has an article on their news blog, The Lede about Private First Class Bradley Manning, he who took a  Wikileak on the Department of State.  At the end of the post is included his current reading list.  I thought you might want to read up:

“Decision Points,” by George W. Bush
“The Critique of Practical Reason” and “The Critique of Pure Reason,” by Immanuel Kant
“Propaganda,” by Edward Bernays
“The Selfish Gene,” by Richard Dawkins
“A People’s History of the United States,” by Howard Zinn
“The Art of War,” by Sun Tzu
“The Good Soldiers,” by David Finkel
“On War,” by Carl von Clausewitz.

In “The Good Soldiers,” Mr. Finkel, a Washington Post reporter who was embedded with an Army unit in Iraq in 2007, described in detail the killing of two Reuters employees by fire from American helicopters. The same episode was shown in graphic video shot from the helicopters posted on YouTube in April by WikiLeaks.
