Michael Whitney: Bradley Manning’s Detention (Video)

More GRITtv

PFC Bradley Manning remains in solitary confinement despite not having been tried or convicted of any crime. The accused leaker of much of the military information that WikiLeaks has so far published turned 23 on Friday and celebrated his birthday without family or friends, in a six foot by twelve foot cell without a pillow and in which he is not allowed to exercise. Michael Whitney of FireDogLake has been following Manning’s case closely, and joins us via Skype to fill us in on the latest reports on Manning’s condition—and why the government feels the need to hold Manning in conditions like those of an enemy combatant.
