Let’s Take A Peek At Bradley Manning’s New Digs!

Obama already declared alleged WikiLeaker slash Lady Gaga fan PFC Bradley Manning “guilty” despite the fact that he still hasn’t had a grand jury hearing. Nevertheless, a mental evaluation board declared Manning mentally competent to stand trial and The President has since moved the young gay soldier from solitary confinement in Quantico, Virginia to the U.S. Disciplinary Barracks in Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas. What special luxuries can Manning expect in his new accommodations?

There he will receive meals through a narrow slot in his cell door and get shackled and escorted by 2 or 3 “correctional specialists” every time he takes a shower or goes outdoors. He will also have access to pre-trial resources and will hopefully be treated in a less “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid” manner than in Quantico.

      Kiss Obama’s ass, you’re fine. Call the lying sack of shit a war criminal, you’re tortured. Queer brothers and sisters, supporting a man makes jokes about dropping bombs on kids is SOOOO GAY. When you vote for Obama in 2012, you’re sending a loud and clear message: shit on us, we don’t care, your wars and your bank bailouts are more important our rights and our families!

      Looks like the perfect vacation spot for Manning… for the next 30 years or so.

      I shudder for the US when I look at the fiasco of the Bradley Manning case. Imprisonment without trial is fundamentally undemocratic. It is no longer fundamentally unAmerican it would seem.

      Cue the usual ‘different rules apply to the military’ comment.


      Either Manning is charged and tried. Or he is released. Those are the 2 democratic options.

      Although the arguments for and against his continued incarceration are understandable…this individual broke several laws, put at risk the lives of the US Military and the foreign relationships of the US, and is a member of the USMil and therefore subject to the US Code of Military Justice (something he knew when he BROKE the law).

      Lets remember there’s a reason things are kept within government and not solely latch onto the fact that he’s gay. He’s not being incarcerated or charged because he’s gay, he’s being charged because he broke the law.

      The US is again exercising arbitrary, indefinite detention – a human rights violation.

      People, please. Complete fact-checking fail here. Wrong facility. Wrong confinement regime.

      See his attorney’s description, please, and don’t miseducate people: http://www.armycourtmartialdefense.info/2011/05/typical-day-for-pfc-bradley-manning-at.html

      @SteveC: Lets play a little game called reading the UCMJ! It’s both educational and entertaining! When this guy signed his life away to the government, he knew his conduct would no longer be punishable by the same set of laws used against a common civilian criminal. Theres a reason for that, breaking the law when in uniform can have much larger consequences for the rest of the country then some random John Q. Civilian.
