Wikileaks Cable Allegedly Leaked by Bradley Manning Caught Bush Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson Discussing Outsourcing to India That May Have Cost Manning's OWN FATHER His Job
"The afternoon I reached Brian Manning, he was at home in Oklahoma City, in a room in his ranch house that Bradley had briefly used as a bedroom. He’s out of work, his job at Hertz outsourced after 23 years. He’s in the midst of a second divorce ..." – New York Magazine, 'Bradley Manning's Army of One'

Information Week, January 24, 2011
"Two years after winning a contract to provide IT services to Hertz, IBM has moved much of that work from the debt-laden car rental giant's technology center in Oklahoma City to India."

U.S. State Department Cable, November 4, 2007
"Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson met with West Bengal Chief Minister ... Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee to discuss economic development in INDIA and West Bengal ... Bhattacharjee then outlined how he has been seeking to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) ... He said that the state was doing well in attracting information technology (IT) companies like IBM ..."

AND THERE'S MORE:

New York Magazine, 'Bradley Manning's Army of One'
"According to the chat logs, Manning said he leaked Iraq and Afghan war logs, reports on Guantánamo prisoners, and a cache of diplomatic secrets, 'explaining how the first world exploits the third, in detail, from an internal perspective.'"

U.S. State Department Cable, November 4, 2007
"Secretary Paulson commented that one of the obstacles to greater FDI in India was uncertainty over contracts and the legal process. He ... mentioned as examples disputes with [Union Carbide's current owner] Dow Chemical ... [Bhattacharjee] assured the Secretary that if there was any investment problem, he would personally resolve the issue."

What Paulson Meant by 'Uncertainty' Over the 'Legal Process'
Bhopal Disaster killed over 10,000 and injured hundreds of thousands in one of the worst industrial disasters in world history in 1984; ever since, victims have pushed for prosecution of Union Carbide's CEO Warren Anderson, now hiding out in the Hamptons

FLASHBACK:
Before You Head Out to the Fireworks, Read This
"[Conservatives'] younger recruits, having nothing in them of the feeling or principles of '76, now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations ... riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." – Thomas Jefferson, 1825
