PayPal Won’t Help Bradley Manning Defend Himself (Against Charges That Haven’t Even Been Brought Yet)

PayPal, the eBay-owned company once controlled by Meg Whitman, has shut down the account of Courage to Resist, which had been raising funds for Bradley Manning’s legal defense. Not that PayPal, which already cut off Wikileaks’ account after pressure for Sen. Joe Lieberman, cites any legal reason for killing Manning’s money movements; it was simply an “internal policy decision.” UPDATE: PayPal has reinstated the account.
