U.N. Looking Into Bradley Manning's Confinement

Dec 23rd, 2010

If reports are true that hero/traitor Pfc. Bradley Manning has been kept in solitary confinement for 7 months, this was bound to happen.

"HAGERSTOWN, Md. -- The United Nations' top anti-torture envoy is looking into a complaint that the Army private suspected of giving classified documents to WikiLeaks has been mistreated in custody, a spokesperson said Wednesday. The office of Manfred Nowak, special rapporteur on torture in Geneva, received a complaint from one of Pfc. Bradley Manning's supporters alleging conditions in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., amount to torture, said spokesperson Xabier Celaya. Visitors say he spends at least 23 hours a day alone in a cell. The U.N. could ask the United States to stop any violations it finds. The Pentagon has denied mistreating Manning. A Marine Corps spokesman says the military is keeping Manning safe, secure and ready for trial."

  1. I am so glad this is happening. Of course, the U.S. controls the U.N. put still, this is a good thing, if for no other reason than the bad press, which might (knock on wood) cause the Pentagon to watch what it does.
