Is this really how American pursues justice today??
Amnesty International is going after Secretary of Defense Robert Gates for the military’s treatment of Bradley Manning – the man accused of leaking classified documents to Wikileaks. In a letter to Secretary Gates – Amnesty International called for an end to the inhumane conditions under which Manning is being held – conditions that include 23 hours of solitary confinement a day. The organization Psychologists for Social Responsibility has taken up the fight too – calling for and end to the, “inhumane, harmful, and counter-productive treatment” of Manning. On Sunday – two journalists from FireDogLake were detained while trying to visit Manning – and last week Manning was place on suicide watch. This is all an effort by the US military and the Department of Justice to break Manning down – and elicit a confession that could also implicate Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. But according to a military official yesterday, “there is apparently no evidence [Manning] passed the files directly to Assange, or had any direct contact with the controversial WikiLeaks figure”. Yet – the Gitmo-style confinement continues. Is this really how American pursues justice today??
