22. This is simply nonsense

"The known treatment of Bradley Manning represents torture under the Obama administration."

The treatment of Manning represent the fucked up prison system. No one seems to give a shit about the hundreds of thousands of prisoners who have been subjected to such treatment forever. This crap predates the horrific Geneva Conventions violations of the Bush Era.

The conflating of those abuses with the treatment of prisoners, and they are abuses, to push the idiotic talking point that the administration condones torture is digusting opportunistic bullshit. It also shows the agenda of those who would ignore other prisoners to focus solely on Manning.

Why isn't anyone focused on all the other prisoners that shared the facility with Manning, the other prisoners locked up in prisons around the country who have been subject to the treatment being highlighted?

Where are the calls for prison reform?
