United States Harvard University kowtows to Trump’s CIA against Chelsea Manning

This video says about itself:

Collateral MurderWikiLeaks – Iraq

3 April 2010

WikiLeaks has obtained and decrypted this previously unreleased video footage from a US Apache helicopter in 2007. It shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and several others as the Apache shoots and kills them in a public square in Eastern Baghdad. They are apparently assumed to be insurgents.

After the initial shooting, an unarmed group of adults and children in a minivan arrives on the scene and attempts to transport the wounded. They are fired upon as well. The official statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed the US military did not know how the deaths occurred. WikiLeaks released this video with transcripts and a package of supporting documents on April 5th 2010 on http://collateralmurder.com.

This video material on war crimes in Iraq was given to WikiLeaks by whistleblower Chelsea Manning. People worldwide celebrated after Ms Manning was freed from torture imprisonment early this year.

Then, Harvard University offered Chelsea Manning a visiting fellowship.

However, then Donald Trump’s CIA boss Mike Pompeo and other CIA top bureaucrats went hysterical.

HARVARD RESCINDS OFFER OF VISITING FELLOWSHIP TO CHELSEA MANNING Douglas Elmendorf, dean of Harvard’s Kennedy School, called Manning’s fellowship designation a “mistake.” [HuffPost]

From the New York Times in the USA on Twitter:

Facing criticism, a Harvard dean said that he was revoking his invitation to Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow

After current and former C.I.A. officials pulled out of commitments at the Kennedy School, its dean said he regretted naming Ms. Manning a fellow.

Meanwhile, Harvard University’s invitation to become a visiting fellow to Sean Spicer, Donald Trump‘s ex-press secretary, notorious for, eg, his whitewashing of Hitler’s Holocaust, still stands. So is the invitation for Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager who was arrested and charged with assaulting a journalist.

This broken promise to Ms Manning by Harvard bigwigs fits in ‘nicely’ with Donald Trump’s war on transgender people in the military.

Chelsea Manning reacted to this on Twitter:

This is what a military/police/intel state looks like 🕵️🕵️‍♀️ The CIA determines what is and is not taught at Harvard

Is Harvard University becoming Trump University?

Harvard University’s decision to revoke whistleblower Chelsea Manning’s visiting fellowship at the Kennedy School of Government under pressure from the Central Intelligence Agency is a contemptible act of political cowardice: here.
