Clinton Spokesman P.J. Crowley Loses His Job For Questioning Bradley Manning’s Detainment

As a reward for speaking openly at a MIT seminar about the U.S. government’s treatment of Bradley Manning, Hillary Clinton‘s spokesman P.J. Crowley has been removed from his position. Officially it was Crowley who resigned, saying in a statement his remarks about Manning’s detainment were merely about how the actions of American security forces affected “our global standing and leadership.” Those remarks, of course, were that Manning’s treatment was “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid on the part of the department of defense,” and it made Barack Obama have to talk to reporters about it.
