Bradley Manning and Apologies to Don McLean

In light of an audiotape of Bradley Manning released yesterday, I’m republishing “Apologies to Don McLean.”

Thank you, Free Press Foundation.


Every morning I receive a rundown of news that will never make the mainstream media.

Here’s one story worth noting:

Video LeakUS Attack Helicopter Kills Farmers While Pilot Sings

Under the headline is an apology to singer-songwriter Don Mclean who wrote these words:

“So, bye bye Miss American Pie Drove my Chevy to the levee, but the levee was dry. Them good ol’ boys were drinking whiskey and rye, singing…

This’ll be the day that I die

This’ll be the day that I die?”

In the video you are about to view, the disconnect of these American Soldiers is stunning. The irony cuts deep because “American Pie” is a song about lost innocence.

Here is the video.

How many times a week does this happen? No trial, No Jury. Guilt by association with an area.

“Bye, Bye Miss American  Pie”
