27. What about Bradley Manning,
the guy credited with leaking most of this stuff? He's been charged with "the unauthorized use and disclosure of U.S. classified information" a violation of the UCMJ. Fair enough I suppose, but he has been held in solitary confinement at the Quantico Brigg, supposedly without so much as a pillow or a blanket for five months and is under constant observation. The latest reports state that he has now been placed on involuntary anti-depression medication. And that's very creepy. This is staring to look very much like the same treatment dished out to Jose Padilla, another US citizen held in federal custody at a military base by his country.
