"I Hereby Resign in Protest Effective Immediately"
An Army vet and former worker in the war industry has "thrown down his rifle," as it were, and in a very public way. Brandon Toy submitted his resignation to General Dynamics and published the reason why in a manifesto that has gone viral. He said he was inspired by Edward Snowden. And that he knows a lot of people in the war industry share his feelings.
Toy follows in the tradition of other recent American heroes -- not only Edward Snowden, but Bradley Manning, Thomas Drake, John Kiriakou, Barrett Brown, Jesselyn Radack, and so many others.
As activist Kevin Zeese likes to say, courage is contagious.
Bravo, Brandon Toy!
