Obama Plans to Imprison Bradley Manning Without a Trial
People were beginning to ask questions. Congressman Kucinich and the UN rapporteur were asking to visit Bradley Manning. He's been locked up and tortured for the better part of a year, but wouldn't it endanger our national security for someone to talk to him about that before he had completely lost his mind?
Yesterday the Pentagon surprised everybody – including Bradley Manning’s lawyer – with news that the accused Wikileaks whistleblower will be moved from the Quantico brig in Virginia to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The Pentagon’s lawyer, Jeh Johnson, announced Manning’s transfer in a snap press conference (video embedded) that revealed the government’s strategy: take Manning to a place “not in the Washington[, DC] area” where he will “likely be in pre-trial confinement for a while.”
