Bradley Manning tortured?
Maybe they just woke him up at 5am to take the picture. ; )
Huh. You and I both know that some of the stuff in the UCMJ is NOT constitutional, particularly freedoms of speech. Manning is a PFC, for crying out loud. How on God's green earth he was given access to reams of secret/top secret information ought to be the main issue; and is an indictment of his superiors, every bit just as much as of Manning himself. There are higher-ups in the chain of command who should be taking the fall too, but if they have, it certainly has been far less public than Manning's treatment has been. I tend to agree with P.J. Crowley on this one. "......the Pentagon’s treatment of Manning at the Marine brig at Quantico, Va., was 'ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid'.”Edited to add that IF the earlier post is legit and not sheer hysteria or spin taken out of context, Rand Paul is shamelessly fearmongering.
You ascribe much power to the ACLU.
