Whoever in our government leaked that information is guilty of treason, and I think anything less than execution is too kind a penalty.

...Manning is a homosexual who should never have been in the military. ... Using sensational language designed to lure the gullible into believing that Manning is some kind of heroic figure being destroyed by fanatical military types, Greenwald ... speculates that the treatment could be considered torture. ... Manning is being held in isolation because of the fear that he could turn over more sensitive information to possible conspirators. This is why his associates are being closely monitored.

[He] has never been convicted of that crime, nor of any other crime. Despite that, he has been detained at the U.S. Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia for five months -- and for two months before that in a military jail in Kuwait -- under conditions that constitute cruel and inhumane treatment and, by the standards of many nations, even torture.

Over the course of my visits to see Bradley in Quantico, it’s become increasingly clear that the severe, inhumane conditions of his detention are wearing on Manning. The extraordinary restrictions of Manning’s basic rights to sleep, exercise, and communicate under the Prevention of Injury order are unnecessary and should be lifted immediately.

If he is truly guilty, he should be tried with a crime in court. Anything less is unconstitutional.
