The inhumane conditions of Bradley Manning's detention

• Glenn Greenwald (Salon)
Bradley Manning, the 22-year-old U.S. Army Private accused of leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, has never been convicted of that crime, nor of any other crime.  Despite that, he has been detained at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia for five months -- and for two months before that in a military jail in Kuwait -- under conditions that constitute cruel and inhumane treatment and, by the standards of many nations, even torture.

"It's one thing to impose such punitive, barbaric measures on convicts who have proven to be violent when around other prisoners; at the Supermax in Florence, inmates convicted of the most heinous crimes and who pose a threat to prison order and the safety of others are subjected to worse treatment than what Manning experiences."

I disagree....

With technology there is no reason whatsoever for ANYONE to have to experience total isolation. I repeat no one for any reason.

Anyone who trusts, or buys into, the American/Military Judicial System has got to be out of his freeking mind.

Manning is still only the 'accused' - but the U.S. Government continues day by day to prove its malicious criminality.
