And do you still have some doubt? Of course they are brainwashing him!

I guess before sending him to Guantánamo, the poor guy is submitted to listen Justin Bieber 24 hs daily and also obliged to watch Hollywood movies in which the U.S tirelessly saves the world of the evil.

The US military officially adds 22 new charges, including 'aiding the enemy' against alleged WikiLeaks leaker Pfc. Bradley Manning.

Manning is accused of illegally downloading tens of thousands of classified US government documents that were later released publicly by WikiLeaks.

New charges filed in the investigation range as high as aiding the enemy, which is a capital offense and carries a potential death sentence.

250 legal experts protest at Manning ‘torture’

What became of Obama, they ask, once an ‘eloquent moral leader’ but now sanctioning ill-treatment?

More than 250 US legal experts have put their names to an open letter decrying the inhumane and illegal treatment of Bradley Manning, the soldier charged with leaking confidential documents to whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks.

The letter, published in the current issue of the New York Review of Books, repeats the widely circulated allegations that Manning is being subjected to enforced nudity, solitary confinement, and sleep deprivation.

The Army justifies this treatment by claiming it is standard for a prisoner under suicide watch. But the claims of inhumane treatment have proved serious enough for the UN to be investigating the US government for torture charges.

The letter, written by two esteemed law professors, Bruce Ackerman of Yale and Yochai Benkler of Harvard, states that Manning's treatment is a violation of the Eighth Amendment’s prohibition of cruel and unusual punishment and the Fifth Amendment’s guarantee against punishment without trial.

Private Manning, who is being held at Quantico marine base in Virginia, has been detained for more than eight months without trial. He has been charged on 34 counts - including "aiding the enemy", which carries a death penalty - for his alleged involvement in the leaking of 250,000 secret US embassy cables to Wikileaks.

The letter is the latest in a series of high-profile calls questioning the point of Manning's prolonged and extraordinary detention. "If Manning is guilty of a crime," the letter says, "let him be tried, convicted, and punished according to law. But his treatment must be consistent with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights."

The letter is also signed by the second most prominent person to speak out about the Manning case, Harvard professor and former legal advisor to President Obama, Laurence Tribe. Echoing former US state spokesperson PJ Crowley's accusation that it is "counterproductive and stupid", Tribe told the Guardian that it is "not only shameful but unconstitutional".

The letter puts the blame squarely on Obama's shoulders, saying that whilst he was once "a professor of constitutional law... an eloquent moral leader", there are now questions over whether his conduct meets "fundamental standards of decency". Obama has continuously denied any mistreatment of Manning, publicly asserting that it is "appropriate and meets our basic standards".

It seems that the facts need to be clarified.

US protesters want Manning released

Sun Jun 5, 2011 1:39PM


About 250 supporters of US Army Pfc. Bradley Manning march through Leavenworth, Kansas to the gates of Fort Leavenworth where Manning is being held, June, 4, 2011.
Hundreds of Americans have gathered in Kansas to voice their support for Bradley Manning, a US army private accused of providing Wikileaks with Defense Department documents, calling for his release.


On Saturday, the demonstrators gathered outside Fort Leavenworth -- where Manning is currently incarcerated -- to make their voices heard, the Huffington Post reported.

Manning, a former US army intelligence analyst, is accused of leaking over 200,000 classified documents, including a video of a 2007 US Apache helicopter attacking civilians in the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, and killing a number of people including a Reuters cameraman and his driver.

"The information Bradley Manning is accused of releasing should have been in the public domain. Whoever revealed it is an American hero," said Jeff Paterson, a Steering Committee member of the Bradley Manning Support Network.

"Our leaders in Washington need to return to American principles of transparent and accountable government. That starts with protecting -- not prosecuting -- whistle-blowers and dropping all charges against Bradley Manning."

"If a fellow soldier is punished for taking his oath to defend the constitution seriously, what does that mean for our military and for our democracy?"

Demonstrators also blasted Manning's inhumane treatment.

Manning was forced to sleep naked in a military cell. He was also ordered to stand naked outside his cell in front of his inmates during the inspection.

The 23-year-old army private was arrested in May 2010 and held at a detention center in Kuwait before being transferred to the US.

He had been imprisoned for nine months in the Quantico Marine Corps Base in Virginia and was then transferred to Fort Leavenworth in April.

The United Nations has blasted Washington for blocking unrestricted access to Private Bradley Manning.
