Pfc. Bradley Manning is among the world’s most notorious terrorists. He is the man who is responsible for revealing to the world what American diplomats said about host nations and other such dangerous secrets. He was arrested two years ago and sent to prison quarters at Quantico Barracks in Virginia. Manning was confined to a 6 by 8 foot cell for at least 23 hours per day! For several days his clothes were taken away each night to prevent an alleged suicide danger.
UN Special Rapporteur on Torture, Juan Mendez informed the United Nations Human Rights Council that he was denied access to Manning. “I am persuaded that Pfc. Manning was subjected to cruel inhuman and degrading treatment” which was in violation of the UN Convention Against Torture.
I think it is wonderful this all occurred when our president was a former professor on Constitutional law.
