WikiLeaks Suspect Gets Sleeping Smock

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — The Marine Corps says it has issued a suicide-proof sleeping garment to the imprisoned Army private suspected of giving classified material to WikiLeaks.

Col. Thomas Johnson said Thursday that Pfc. Bradley Manning was given the smock Monday as a substitute for clothing that is removed each night from Manning’s cell at the brig in Quantico, Va.

Manning says in a memo to base commander Col. Daniel Choike that the clothing-removal order on March 2 was punitive. He says the bulky smock is uncomfortable.

Manning’s memo is a rebuttal of Choike’s decision on March 1 to deny Manning’s request for an easing of the maximum-custody order that keeps him locked up alone 23 hours a day.

      Julian Assange was a member of the Anne Hamilton Byrne cult and this private is a scape goat. No private has access to this info that was already pretty much known.

        Anyone that thinks a private was able to divulge the massive amount of information he is charged with doing so, must be more medicated than a Lady Gaga groupie locked in a pharmacy overnight.

        The entire Wikileaks scam/operation is government run from top to bottom. If you can’t digest these complexities maybe you should turn on your TV and tune into Dancing with the Morons. —

    • Steve

      Releasing classified information is a federal offense and he signed a contract acknowledging that fact.

      • Answers Please

        Steve, …what “contract” does American society respect or hold non-negotiable… like it all hinges on what “IS” means. Marriage license/contracts? Adoption contracts (Torry Hansen airmails a 7 yr old boy she adopted back to Russia alone and gets NO jail time, NO questioning, but the US State Dept Rep tells TV reporter they are going to Russia to try to thaw the freeze Russia put on Americans’ adopting their orphans (because Russia called Torry a Child Abuser that has the stamp of approval of the USA), and when the reporter asks if they (State) talked to Torry, he snapped back NO, and we do not intend to talk to her, there is NO NEED to talk to her.) Too many failed contracts easy to get out of in the USA, so why would a product of this society think a military contract is any diff? Where IS that Muslim who hates Americans and killed a bunch of us on our Military base, the guy that the not so smart but very PC chiefs in the US Military promoted in positions to help the “mental health” of other military? Why aren’t those promoters behind bars for aiding and “comforting” the enemy but are quick to put a 23 y/o in solitary for months nude, in the dark, 23 hrs a day? Where are your brains, Americans?

      • bob

        Steve, the copyrighted material and porn on you PC is more than likely Fed felony material, The bottom line is if the govt wants to imprison someone, they can. Just like that. The average working professional commits 3 felonies each day.

      • Charlie

        Manning violated his oath by providing classified military information to our enemies, an act that he not only admitted to, but even bragged about. He does not deserve the relatively honorable execution by a military firing squad, but a humiliating one in which he empties his bowels and bladder while dangling by his neck at the end of a rope.

      • Angry American

        Hey Charlie, did we see your pix not long ago on top of a pile of Abu Graub prisoners of USA Military Experts?

    • Dennis

      They’re going to murder him and call it suicide. They just need news articles about him on suicide watch before the killers can get away with crying suicide.

      Who’s “they”? The state who doesn’t like having their “state” secrets out. If we can’t even name these people we should REALLY be concerned.

      • Answers Please

        Hey Newbern, does that idea make you proud? Do you like what happens to incarcerated human beings who are being punished for crimes by being held in prison away from “civil” society, do you figure those rapes and beatings by crazies part of what you deem punishment… that takes the full responsibility off YOUR hands… i.e., let Mikie do it? Shame and more Shame on what we have let happen to the very best Constitutional Republic ever in the world. Yes. Shame on US, the USA. Where are those who defend freedom, where are those who the world counted on to help them attain freedom by a simple NO FLY zone. We catch them on TV flashing the V sign, and we hear them say Please, we need help. We do not have the equipment to defend against the TYRANT’s MILITARY goons. All we ask for is a NO FLY ZONE. Hey you soldiers on this site, why aren’t you making the Con Artist represent Freedom… THAT is his job, THAT is his CONSTITUTIONAL and MILITARY OATH. What jokes and braggards. Defend yourselves, make the Con fulfill HIS contract with America. Listen Up. We used to love our military personnel and hold them in very high, special regard, and we KNEW they represented freedom, the protection and achievement of freedom. Now most of us are ashamed of the goofs in our Military Leadership, and the poor kids wanting a better “life” and this society only gives them the option of military. We even bring in FOREIGNERS and give them FREE education, etc. for saluting for a short time… and you can bet they ain’t gonna get shot in the process.

      • Newbern W Johnson

        Dennis, if “they” wanted him dead, “they” would have put him out in the general prison population. He wouldn’t last a week.

      • RULE of Law

        Yes, Dennis, that’s the plan. Can’t let him live after all the perverts jailing him have spent time with him, naked and in a straight jacket. Geesh, somebuddy might have taken some pix of their “soldiering” actions in that windowless tiny cube. Betcha he is murdered. When he is, there will be more h*ll to pay than what they got away with in Iraq. Don’t like them being called perverts? No PC here useful idiots, read on for your fodder.

        Exactly! There are so many sheeples out there who are brainwashed by our evil govt to believe that the military is a bunch of sweet innocent people when they are really a bunch of killers who will do anything our evil govt asks them to do and not think twice about it. I am ex-military myself and I am ashamed of that because I know what the military and our evil govt is really about. Truth hurts, don’t it sheeples? If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen!

      If he would endure his hardships silently like a good soldier instead of acting like a little baby then i might start feeling sorry for him. But I would also bet that the commander might show some compassion for him if he did that as well.

        Get a life Chad, Obviously you haven’t even been in the military because that is NOT how it works.

    • FromA LongLine of Americans

      Paid Goons: You do not qualify as Americans any more than the Con Artist Obama does. The American Military we respect does not isolate a 23 yr old who has not yet been tried or proven guilty (remember those requirements American CITIZENS?) of anything. The Perverts in our Military keep the kid nude and in solitary (wonder who is visiting him, do not trust those “guys and gals” since PROVEN untrustworthy by pix from Iraq jails) and put him in what we know is a STRAIGHT JACKET (maybe to prevent him fighting off the perverts). Americans, where are you… are there any left? Did you hear the Con answer the CBS reporter today who called him on his candidate statements that the USA would come to the defense of those fighting for freedom, against tyrants… the sh**a** repeated the reporter’s statement and covered his a** by adding that we would do so along with other nations… this global freak is no American, and those perverts hurting this 23 y/o are definitely not Americans.

      • Angry American

        Yes, Thomas Jefferson. They are no longer strong minded freedom loving and protective of our country. Some, bless ’em, have that thought, but very few. State of the Military proves it. Our Founders demanded that citizens have the right to bear arms… militia… as free people. Well, to protect ourselves from the swarming tyrants in our country now, seems our Founders meant we have the right to EQUAL arms, not slingshots against nukes, so we need and have the right to some individual upgrading looks like to me. “They” are trying to keep guns away from Americans and are scared poopless that somebody might figure it out that we have the right to ARMS not just shotguns. Semper Fi in the true sense.

      • bob

        Hey TJ, I think “military-worship” is abbreviated as; fascism.

      • FromA LongLine of Americans

        jmac – Unions are like anything else. Started out with good purpose, to level the working field and prevent abuse of workers… and there was plenty of it. Family members did a lot of stuff to get Union in a small town many eons ago… brave, very brave guys with smart strategies – proud of their success and no one hurt. Human beings get lazy and that opens the doors for tyrants and thugs to move in and take command. That’s why we have the warning that Freedom requires constant VIGILANCE. Lazy Americans are what happened to the Unions and that’s what has happened with our government offices. The cheeseheads in WI cheer their great GBPackers Team as do many of us… but clearly they have no idea of what Lombardi taught that organization or they wouldn’t let the Dems skip town, and they would demand negotiation and compromise. Lombardi taught necessity of personal integrity and courage, which is missing in most of our national sports today in exchange for greed that has destroyed any concept of players being role models. Cheeseheads are afraid. I know Union work. I know how the thugs prod and promise the employees (I hate the term Workers, it’s soooo commie.) Can’t let the thugs take over, Americans. Take back the Unions from the “bosses”, take back our government from the “con’s”. Settle the dispute and TELL THE BOSSES how it’s gonna be, don’t trot out for them so that they have more power over you.

      • ThomasJefferson

        I agree. The military-worship in this country is unbelieveable. It’s like the state religion. Few things could be more unamerican. Our Founders believed a large standing army was a persistent threat to liberty — and they were right.

    “Ask not what your country can do for you.

That author was President John F. Kennedy. The enemies of America did not imprison JFK on trumped up charges and submit him to cruel and unusual punishment. They simply blew his brains out. Thank you, Pfc. Bradley Manning for your service to the U.S.A.

      • Respectfully

        First let me say thank you for your service. I respect you and everyone serving on the ground in our military. You are doing what most wouldn’t and you truly exemplify the best of our country.

        With that said, I can not support the leaders of our military, our politicians (and their aides) who direct our military, and most of the work done by the “intelligence agencies” especially the CIA, and the careless ways they direct men and women like you and sacrifice to meet their ends. Just look to what Henry Kissinger said, ‘you are useless eaters who only deserved to be directed in conflict.’

        A simple non-mythical look at our history, even the last 100 years reveals how insidious these people/groups are. Because of that I can not in clear conscience serve or reccomend anyone to that cause.

        I will end this with some quick items to take note. Did the Pentagon Papers not stay with anyone? Vietnam was a travesty and escalated based on false information (Gulf of Tonkin). It also revealed the government misleading the public as far back as Eisenhower. So if it started then, it is so much worse today. Therefore, wikileaks and others are needed to bring these lies to the forefront.

        Look up Major General Smedley Butler USMC. Arguably the most decorated pre-WW2 serviceman. His conclusion upon retirement, THAT WAR IS A RACKET, and is verified by our Imperial occupation of Iraq and Afganistan, at the cost of soldiers lives and tax money no one has. If we were there to accomplish missions, especially catching Osama Bin Laden (worked with CIA in the 80s fact) or finding WMD ANYWHERE in the Mideast it would have taken a year if fully committed, but we were only committed to the continued racket……. I mean justification of the un-Patriot Acts…..I mean wars.

        yup, you sure are smart aren’t you Capt Awesome… Can type on a keyboard & EVERYTHING!!!! Why, i’ll even bet that you figured out how to tie your shoes all by yourself. KUDOS!

      He was a soldier in the US Army, he took an oath to enlist, he also had a security clearance which required a number of other consents & agreements on his part regarding the secrets he was privy too. And he’s not covered under the same law as a private citizen is, his crime & punishment are covered under the UCMJ.

      He committed an act of treason during a time of war, that is punishable by death. Just because you wish it to be something doesn’t change that fact.

      • bob

        Brokenblade, you have a oath as well, a pledge. So when your government commits crimes you should support them to the fullest. hummm, Germany come to mind. How are you at burying people?

    Pvt. Bradley Manning should be released immediately.

    • Capt Awesome

      No, he should be held and tried. He committed a crime. Is that too much for you to comprehend?

      • patriot19

        If we make whistle blowing a crime we’ve lost our way and are no longer free.

        @ Capt Notsoawesome

        Hey i know!!! All pvt Manning has to do is say that GOD MADE HIM DO IT. And then all of the Redneck Fox loving mindless slaves will nod their heads in agreement and go on with their lives. Yup Yup Derp Derp

      Nope, I’d go for the execution ASAP!

      I agree. He should be released in the middle of Afghanistan.

      I do agree with this poster that Pvt Manning’s crime pales in comparison with what is currently in Washington… however, the proper house to point at is the House of Congress and not the WH…

    He is in a Marine Brig not a cushy white collar fairy palace he committed a treasonable act against this nation. He should be judged by the UCMJ and have a General Court execute sentence on his miserable ass. Receiving the proper and ultimate sentence ( I doubt he will get that) May God have mercy on his soul because this old Marine would not.

  • Lee

    This is sad, idiots attack a man that joined in service to defend his country so the poeple in his country can call him a killer and a theif. They attack an individual and yet vote continously to keep the man in a situation they do not want him to be in. They voice their opinions that he is the evil, this man that comits no sin but has taken upon him all of thier country’s sins. You name throwing idiots, and harlets, you have no justification for your judgement, but you still cast judgement. Thank god that we have an all volunteer military, and none of these name calling nuts every have to get their hands dirty.
    Now, this Bradley Manning is being kept safe from the other military prisoners of the which are more than likely still loyal to their country. This man is not a whistleblower, but a lost disallusioned little boy who thought he was in the right when he was in a very wrong place, and could not see the fact he was being used.

  • Jmac5280

    Like most democrats, PFC Manning is a traitor to his own country. Not only is Manning willing put the lives of his fellow soldiers in jeopardy for his own political beliefs, just as the democrats did with our soldiers in Iraq, but he is also willing to endanger the lives of his family and friends that live in this country. Personally if he’s going to commit suicide let him do it, it will save us the price of a bullet. Having served in the Marine Corps myself I have no pity for this man.

  • Justin

    Silly why would he kill himself? Write a book!

  • Jake

    A traitor in our time, a hero in the history books. Too much lack of transparency, too much manipulation and gatekeeping. Iraq was a farce with the WMD claims. Saddam had nothing to do with 911 directly.
    To the soliders who serve our country, thank you and god bless you. Biut I don’t understand the connection to Iraq or Afghanistan deployments protecting our freedom of speech. To me the radicals will never win on our soil.

    The kid certainly deserves to be publicly banished. But death by firing squad? I mean come on. Can we be that hasty with a topic as evolving and sensitive as the internet and wikileaks? It is his life.

    • Jmac5280

      The radicals are already winning on our soil. Ever heard of the TSA and the molestation of americans at our airports as a show of “security.” All of this while they know that a terrorist can walk right through tsa security with explosives undetected. But it’s for our own safety…. Don’t you feel safer knowing everybody and their children are being groped at the airport? Americans asked to report their nieghbors if they think they are doing anything suspicious. Dont you dare mention the word Islam and terrorist because you will encourage more terrorism. The Radicals have already won.

  • Nate

    He understood the duties of his job when he took the oath. His alleged crime has nothing to do with whether or not it was moral or right to supply cables to wikileaks, it has to do with violation of the law he willingly volunteered for and agreed to obey in order to wear that uniform.

    • Answers Please

      Nate, get the Con Artist to obey the Presidental Oath of Office. What will you have done to him when proven he is not qualified by birth to be sitting in the Oval Office. Public Gallows? Solitary Naked in windowless Cube 23 hrs/day? General Population? I believe this guy is a fraud and has been placed in office by Chicago powerful on Wacker Drive… just like they placed their buddy Emanuel in Daley’s chair and shoved him off stage. Now there’s some big boys who “willingly and knowingly” lied to us to get control… the freaks. Wake up and smell the coffee. This kid is a hero, and is being punished by the big ol I Will Close Gitmo Promiser with the title Commander In Chief.

      • Jmac5280

        the kid took an oath which he violated. He commited treason in a time of war. He purposely put the lives of his fellow soldiers at risk. This kid is no different than Timothy McViegh. He hated the govt and didn’t care how many americans got hurt or killed because of his actions; just like McViegh. He is subject to military law, he will betried under the UCMJ. Hopefully he will get the death penalty just like McViegh did.

  • meeester

    I sure don’t want him to die from suicide.
    However, if a trial finds him guilty of treason I would be satisfied if his life was terminated.

    What impact on our deficit might we expect from selling chances to pull the trigger?
    I guess that may be premature to consider, and not very senistive to his feelings. my bad.

  • Ghostsouls

    Manning should press to get to trial as soon as possible before obama and holder gets out of office. His best bet is socialist obama and eric holder who refuse to do anything about terrorism. If he waits too long and election takes place and obama is ousted, he’s done for.
