78. Doesn't look good -- certainly the military/government behavior is still to be questioned ...
In order to uphold the rights guaranteed to Bradley Manning under international human rights law and the US constitution, it is imperative that the United Nations special rapporteur be allowed to properly investigate evidence of rights abuses. PFC Manning has a right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment. People accused of crimes must not be subjected to any form of punishment before being brought to trial," they wrote.

"We certainly do not understand why an alleged whistleblower is being threatened with the death penalty, or the possibility of life in prison. We also question whether Bradley Manning's right to due process has been upheld, as he has now spent over 17 months in pre-trial confinement."


Not sure the article is telling us all we need to know -- like who is being permitted to visit

him, if anyone?

What is his physical and psychological condition after 23 months of solitary confinement?
