8. Let's be clear. Bradley Manning didn't ask for unmonitored access.
The UN special rapporteur did ask for unmonitored access as the UN does in all cases.
It's impossible to ascertain the treatment and conditions of a prisoner in a governments
custody if the government that is punishing the prisoner monitors that meeting. Governments
tend to use that info to implicate the prisoner further or punish the prisoner. Now can you
explain why the US should be granted special exceptions to UN rules?
