Call top Pentagon attorney Jeh Johnson. Tell him to let U.N. officials meet with Bradley Manning

Bradley Manning Support Network

On Monday, Juan Mendez, the United Nations' top official on torture, blasted the Obama Administration for its abuses of accused WikiLeaks whistle-blower PFC Bradley Manning.

Speaking at a meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, Mendez stated:

"I believe Bradley Manning was subjected to cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment in the excessive and prolonged isolation he was put in during the eight months he was in Quantico."

Jeh Johnson, in his capacity as General Counsel, has been the Pentagon's main point of contact with Juan Mendez. He has been the official mouthpiece through which the Obama administration has repeatedly denied a private meeting between the U.N. torture investigator and PFC Manning.

Call Jeh Johnson's office: 703-695-3341

If the main line is busy: 703-697-7248

You can also fax his office: 703-693-7278

Tell him:

  1. Let Juan Mendez meet with Bradley Manning in private, to conduct a proper fact-finding mission, according to the terms of his U.N. mandate.
  2. Drop all charges against Bradley Manning. There is no excuse to imprison and subject anyone, let alone a soldier and a whistle-blower, to prolonged cruel and degrading treatment.
  3. If he is unable to stand up for PFC Manning's rights under the Constitution and international humanitarian law, he should resign.
