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.

      No sense in kiling himelf, when so many would gladly do it for him.

        Police cadets, military cadets and recruits, and others really do need some live target practice. One knee at a time, or elbow…

      4. Patrick Henry says:

        @Harold E Vincent

        And when they’re done with him, they’ll come after slaves like you for being too stupid to recognize how criminal your government has become

      5. Fanny Forbes Franklen says:

        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. — http://911essentials.com

      6. God's Mustache says:

        Distributing vital information IS a dangerous thing. Good thing he only had a Lady Gaga CD. If he had a box cutter or a plastic knife he could have brought down the whole enchilada.

        That’s why I prefer my employees to keep me in the dark. I got me some NASCAR watch. GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    2. Capt Awesome says:

      Except for the whole betrayal of his country and the treason thing, yeah.

      1. Shelly says:

        Yeah, the USSA should keep all its lies and crimes hidden and the people should be kept in the dark and fed sht–like mushrooms, because that’s about how smart the citizenry has become anyway.

      2. Capt Awesome says:

        Yes, you certainly are proof of the slipping collective IQ.

      3. CommonCents says:

        I’m not letting him off the hook, his actions show he was a traitor.

        However, there’s a lot more treason occurring in D.C. EVERY DAY.

      4. Against Capt Awesome says:

        Your words themselves are Treason to this country sir. YOU ARE THE TRAITOR!!!!

      5. Patrick Henry says:

        @Capt Awesome
        I think you mean betrayal of the corrupt political establishment and military industrial complex. As for the country, a lot of us are pleased with his actions and consider him to be a true patriot

      6. Raymond A Wood says:

        Damn where did all the commies come from, go to iran and spout off there and see how long you keep breathing. in most countries this dude would be dead already be thankful where you were born

    3. Ben says:

      Anything wrong? He is a traitor

      1. Against Capt Awesome says:

        YOU ARE THE TRAITOR BEN!!!!

        YOU AND ALL OF YOUR SUBSEQUENT POSTS WITH DIFFERENT NAMES!!!!

      2. God's Mustache says:

        You can’t be a traitor against a tyrannical government.

    4. Nick says:

      Yes, except become a traitor to his country and jeopardize the freedom and safety of all his fellow citizens…

      1. Adam Smith says:

        No, not having this information has jeopardized our freedom!!! The same as the Patriot Act. Who will hold “THEM” accountable???

      2. RULE of Law says:

        Except? Except? Prove it, Nick, Prove it. We have LAWS and PROCEDURES SUPPOSEDLY here, not so sure any more… that protect us from punishment UNTIL we are PROVEN guilty. Nick, read the Constitution. Try to find out what it means to be an American. Hard to do now, but with your audacity, you can do er.

      3. Against Capt Awesome says:

        YOU ARE THE TRAITOR NICK!!!!!
        You and EVERY SINGLE REDNECK THAT THINKS LIKE YOU!!!

      4. ethancase says:

        uhh… he’s only in jail because he was in the military. the rules of laws apply differently to them. idiots. regardless of whether this info was right for joe schmo to have the fact is he swore an oath and took on a responsibility as a member of the intellligence community and as a soldier (not a civilian therefore doesnt have same rights as we do until he is discharged). he broke one of the most seriously laws we have and will suffer the consequences.

      5. Patrick Henry says:

        @ethancase
        And what about the oaths to the Constitution taken by members of the military, intelligence community, AND the political puppets? Why are they not all presently being fitted for “suicide” suits?

        I have no doubt he will suffer for his actions, but you too will suffer for your willful ignorance and self-imposed slavery to establishment hypocracy.

        Uhhh…. huh? Why don’t you scoot off and vote for a war-loving neocon, buy some warbonds, and drink some fluouride – and call it all patriotism

      6. bob says:

        You got to fell sorry for Nick. He has pledged so much allegiance that his brain has slipped into neutral. Nick, It was your govt that just killed 120,000 people. 50,000 were NATO or US.

    5. Steve says:

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

      1. Charlie says:

        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.

      2. Angry American says:

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

      3. bob says:

        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.

      4. Answers Please says:

        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?

    6. Dennis says:

      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.

      1. Patriot Alpha says:

        And your point, is?

      2. RULE of Law says:

        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.

      3. AJ says:

        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!

      4. Newbern W Johnson says:

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

      5. Answers Please says:

        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.

    7. Chad Coulter says:

      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.

      1. Against Chad now says:

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

    8. FromA LongLine of Americans says:

      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.

      1. ThomasJefferson says:

        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.

      2. Angry American says:

        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.

      3. bob says:

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

      4. Jmac5280 says:

        Unions are very unamerican as well but democrats love them

      5. FromA LongLine of Americans says:

        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.

    “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country” – written by the author of the book “Profiles In Courage”, telling the story of Americans who stood up for the truth even when it was unpopular. 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.

      2. Voice of Sanity says:

        Your words themselves REEK of TREASON. How can you sleep at night even thinking this is how America works. Don’t you even realize that this country was FOUNDED by people like Pvt. Manning? Those not afraid to speak out of the atrocities their so called rulers were asking them to commit. I SALUTE YOU PVT MANNING!! YOU ARE THE TRUE AMERICAN HERO. And not these whiny, redneck, Fox watching, Rush & Hannity loving losers…

      My choice you say? You are right, as selfish treason and giving aid and comfort to the enemy was the choice of this child. He deserves to be judged by God, and it is the duty of the American Military Court to arrange the meeting.

      13. Army - 13A says:

        Hooah.

      14. Respectfully says:

        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.

        @Respectfully

        Kissinger also said “Military men are just dumb stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy .” Unfortunately, this is a sentiment shared by the political theater government, the military industrial complex, and the globalists of Kissinger’s ilk.

      19. bob says:

        W T Sane, I know you mean well. Many weak minded folks get caught up in a “honor” military mindset. Not to burst your bubble, but you are doing absolutely nothing in defending my rights. If you are in Iraq you are in a war with unprovoked people resulting in 120,000 deaths. If you are in Afghanistan you are part of a lost cause of killing people. You are siring up animosity in the entire Muslim World. You are a little tiny expendable piece in a political game. You are endangering yourself. You are causing yourself lifetime mental anguish. When you get back home make sure you stick with in psychiatric help. Stay alive!

    3. thetruthshallsetyoufree says:

      JFK didn’t write “Profiles in Courage” – his lawyer Ted Sorensen did. Sound familiar? Just like Obama didn’t write Dreams from My Father (see “Deconstructing Obama”)..

      Liberals lie, period. And then whine & complain when they get caught.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profiles_in_Courage

      1. Voice of Sanity says:

        No, sorry, what you hear from Liberals is called verifiable truth. The drivel that spills from your self serving lips is the Lie…

    4. Michael says:

      Two things: JFK did not write Profiles In Courage and Manning has threatend suicide. If he managed to commit suicide, you would be the first to protest that the military should have watched him more closely and taken stricter measures to prevent him from committing suicide. You can’t have it both ways.

      1. Patrick Henry says:

        And who says he threatened to commit suicide – the very same people who fitted him for a suicide suit? Does being a sucker ever get tiresome?

AND, thank you Assange, for your service to Freedom. No, the enemies of America didn’t use trumped up charges on JFK. Always thought his diddling of Marilyn along with Bobby incited the crosshairs on both of em. Never thought Courage had anything to do with deceit and cruelty foisted by the “elites” on whatever they saw and wanted. Truth is a floodlight on the roaches.

      1. Dave says:

        What?! Lord knows I hate the Democrats, but DHS and TSA was created under Bush, with its agenda furthered by Bush’s DHS chief – Chertoff. We’ve got the Republicans to blame for creating that agency and the dems to blame for allowing it to continue. They’re all guilty.

      2. Jmac5280 says:

      4. Jmac5280 says:

        The partiot act went after terrorist phonecalls. Obamas new security goes after Americans

      No, you don’t. Should they have told everyone about the Normandy landings in 1944 because ‘everyone has a right to know’? The military has secrets for good reason – to keep Americans alive.

        You mean to keep them willing slaves.

Breathalyzers that will force you to continuously take breath test during your drive to prove that you are not drinkiing regrdless of whether or not you have ever had a dui charge or not. That would be democrats. Who is running the nazi state in this country? Again that would be democrats.

      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.

      1. Harold E Vincent says:

  17. Lee says:

    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.

  18. Jmac5280 says:

    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.

  19. Justin says:

    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.

    1. Jmac5280 says:

      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.

  21. Nate says:

    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.

    1. Answers Please says:

      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.

      1. Jmac5280 says:

        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.

  22. meeester says:

    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.

  23. Ghostsouls says:

    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.

This man did what he felt was right, in spite of the fact that he will probably be executed for it. How many of us can say that??
    True treason is giving information to the enemy. This was giving information to the American people so they can hold their own government accountable. This man should go to jail, but to murder him is barbaric.

    1. John Benjamin says:

  35. matt says:

    Manning is a prisoner of conscience, and if he were held in China instead of the US we’d be cheering his Nobel peace prize.

    H has been convicted of no crime yet is being punished in a way that not even Nazis prisoners were treated.

    If this is how the US military treats itself then I truly worry about the future. If you think his action was illegal then accuse, arrest and convict him in the courts. Treat him like a human being.

    There is absolutely no excuse for the TORTURE being inflicted on a prisoner – serial killers of children are treated better than this. Forced solitary for months, denial of physical activity, sleep deprivation, forced nudity…. there’s a word for it, and it’s TORTURE. Plain and simple.

    Convict him or don’t, but this kind of treatment is un-American. I’d expect it from Egypt or China not the US.

    1. Angry American says:

      “american” – you are missing a very important fundamental here. We are NOT subjects, WE are rulers of our own destiny. That means WE must take responsibility and demand the information and tools to accomplish that responsibiltiy; to be accountable to each other; to use our Freedom of Speech, and bravely exhibit the understanding that We ARE the government.
      Government BY the people OF the people and FOR the people. You must realize that you are responsible like every American for ensuring we have an OPEN TRANSPARENT government… something that Davis-Obama conned us about as a candidate. That con and his deceit about his birthcertificate will prevent him from a second term regardless of positioning Emanuel in authority in ChiTown or his deals with union bosses. “Home of the Brave” is a title and has a meaning. Good sense protects our strategies, plans, achievements, defense from all non-citizens. Citizens must be aware. For those who do not respect that protection, we have Fed Pens and Ol’ Sparky and Dripsters for TRAITORS… like Pollard, the Rosenburgs, etc. It is OUR responsibility that they do not get an Executive Skip Outta Jail Card from a Prez leaving office – a card we must take away from that office. If the TRAITOR greatly annoys us, we can rig the ol’ Firing Squad back into existence. National Security Agency originated from a group called Arlington Hall and is information gathering tool, decoders, translators, etc. CIA was originally Coordinator of Information setup by Roosevelt then split into Strategic Services Office (spies) and War Information Office (war propaganda) then dissolved and agents filtered into Joint Chiefs of Staff and State Dept. then later pulled and became agents in new CIA. Americans know (or should know) about these services/agencies and want their activities kept confidential… but when they willfully make moves that cause us trouble, we EXPECT whistleblowers to tell us. THAT is the point at which the truther rock is expected to be picked up, not crawled under.

        jmac5280— that’s the prob. Not a lot of Americans understand English and the meaning of words today… how COULD we, having been dumbed down by the controllers like the NEA and the sneaks in our Universities, grade and other schools. Concerted effort and it worked. Privacy of an individual citizen is not the same as Secrecy. Secrecy has its place and purpose… but not as a method to hoodwink citizens, and when good, brave, redblooded Americans trip over lies that Americans are being told by their government agencies… it is the DUTY of the discoverers as citizens, to BLOW THE WHISTLE. Did you guys ever figure out the scrabble game Clinton was playing with you on “is”? None of our political parties are to be trusted, they are to be used and investigated by citizens to make sure they represent those citizens’ directions and it is the responsibility of those citizens who adhere to any party to make sure the party reps aren’t liars and that they keep promises. This kid was revealing truths and unfortunately thought Americans would value truth… like that lawyer who spilled the beans on the chief of the Dept at the DOJ who told the lawyer crew there would be no suits filed against The Black Panthers… no filings against blacks if the victims are white. He told you that on national TV. He had resigned a good paying secure job to tell you the truth. Like it has been said, you don’t want the truth because you can’t handle the truth.

  44. SSG Sam says:

    It seems that being a soldier doesn’t efford young Mr Manning the same right to his day in court as we would give even the evilest maniac, I believe that in light of his service, we should withold judgement until a duly appointed Cout Martial hears his case.
    Much less that a soldier is being held in a Marine “Brig”. The only competant jury will be selected by a miltary judge. Not you channel 13 people, who speak in red and blue, black and white, redneck and commie-pinko-vegitarian. KSM gets more due process and that’s beev 9.5 years!!

    Nearly destroyed the world’s financial system with Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac leading Goldman JPM and MSC

    Collateralized citizens SS and Medicare trusts into public debt

    Has morphed into such a plutocracy that it doesn’t even try to hide it anymore.

    Just invaded a country, unprovoked, and is responsible 120,000 deaths and has stealth wars going on in 4 other countries

    Has ordered executions of its own citizens without hearings or trial

    Has declared war on domestic civil liberties and is fully winning

    Has successfully structured debt/deficits so the it need to borrow almost half of what is spends from the foreign entities

    Has blindly subsidized the world knowing that it was moving towards a deflationary spiral

    Is foolishly engaging in costly/risky domestic Keynesian policies when it is the world’s rules that are changing.

    The young soldier that stated he is commenting from one of two war zones…I agree with you. I am a civilian serving in a combat zone, served 12 years in the Marine Corps in the I.T. sector. What people don’t seem to understand here is this isn’t an attack on the Privates rights, nor is it an attack on the entire WikiLeaks organization. What this young Private did was violate the Uniform Code of Military Justice. That is a standard that ALL military must uphold and abide by. He obviously had malicious intent with his actions. He was a troubled young soldier, who should have never deployed to a war zone. His immediately commanders recommended he be non-deployable, however higher powers decided he would be ‘treated in country’. These sorts of mistakes by young officers today need to be dealt with as well. I work in the Information Assurance field, and I can attest first hand that incidents like this do cause millions of dollars worth of damage. You may not realize it, but every procedure, code and encryption device must be re-done when a breach of this nature occurs. Fortunately for those of you who sit back and let others do the dirty work, there are highly trained soldiers and civilians to do the work. No need to thank us, or even support us…we don’t do it to get a pat on the back from all of you. As a reminder….you can denounce your citizenship at any time and move to another country….they’ll be more than happy to take you I’m sure.

  51. wymck says:

    It looks like this forum has degenerated into “Manning is innocent/guilty or hero/traitor,” or “who is behind a plot to do him in,” or “the WikiLeaks thing was bad/good.”

    I’m very, very angry about the WikiLeaks scandal, and I very much suspect Manning because I am given no reason to suspect anyone else. Someone a little farther up the ladder should, I think, be answering some very, very tough questions about how a Private can do this sort of thing. Perhaps someone wearing an eagle or a star should be on the hot seat along with Manning.

    As to the “sleeping smock,” all I can think of right now is that actor Charlie Sheen could probably use a smock.

  52. The Engineer says:

    I personally don’t care one way or the other about the boy’s fate. However as a society of laws, he still has a right to a fair and speedy trial. Manning has been held in maximum security isolation for over half a year now, without ever seeing a court room. Love or hate Manning, no one has EVER been subject to this level of treatment without first being tried and convicted. God help you if you find that you are now an enemy of the state.

    Manning is being used right now to stack allegations against wikileaks. The US State and Justice departments are bidding their time before they can extradite Assange from Sweeden to try him for espionage. Manning’s testimony is a lynch pin for their case. This treatment is a clear attempt at physiologically trying to break Manning and coercing him into testifying.

    However I believe the State and Justice departments are ignorant to the psychological damage they are doing to Manning and the effect that will have on their case. Extended isolation results in permanent brain deformities and often insanity. If Manning is not medically competent, he will be unable to stand trial, or testify.

    Some of these comments are quite interesting and reflect the paranoia and hate from isolation via XBOX and Twitterophiles. I understand how you relate to PVT Manning.
    Those of you that contend they were in the military (as I was for 30 years) know of the CYA mentality. NOBODY wants Bradley Manning to kill himself on their watch. Look at his actions and read his story and the Private is clearly a self destructive whack-job and a grade A suicide risk. He’s lucky he doesn’t spend his days in a straight jacket.

    He knew the consequences of doing something stupid before hand. Now, he understands the military really meant business. He is a fool and will soon be a dead fool.

    Interesting .. i heard somewhere that the reason Manning did this was because the Army wouldnt let him see his boyfriend … hmmmmmm

  59. Annie says:

    I’m sorry. I must have missed the trial finding him guilty that all these other commenters must have followed closely.

    Last time I checked, American citizens are still guaranteed a presumption of innocence until the trial by jury of his peers – not a trial by government-controlled BigMedia.Personally, I think people who are so willing to violate Constitutional guarantees are the real traitors — much more so than whoever released embarrassing “secrets”

    this private did nothing but tell the truth about his corrupt government.he was sworn to tell the truth

    2 words……Firing Squad……….but with cross eyed shooters to make it last a lot longer and not so procise:)

    This guy probably sleeps better than the troops risking life and limb he betrayed. He should have been hanged for treason.

    Our government has become so corrupt that this incident could be a government operation to sway public opinion. One thing I know for certain is the release of the Pentagon Papers saved thousands if not millions of lives. Manning was and is governed by a different set of rules because he is regular Army. That being said, what he did was a good thing if it gets us out of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. If this whole thing is a set up from the get go, that would not surprise me either.

    What they are doing to this young man is wrong. iT IS CRUEL & UNUSUAL PUNISHMENT. He has been conviced of no crime & he has a right to a fair & speedy trial by a jury of his peers. Believe everything your government tells you & we all would be speaking a foreign language. Disgusting lies of the U.S. Government & shame on all of you out there who are sheep & just follow because you never had an original idea of your own. Dumb ass ignorant M…..F’rs
