52. Supposedly his detention is not unusual.
Edited on Wed Jan-26-11 02:53 PM by mzmolly
This is abhorrent. However, that doesn't mean the President will have him released from prison or that Democrats should take up the mantle of releasing a potential traitor.

Let me say, I've never understood the notion that Asange is a hero, while Manning is allowed to rot in Prison. I did not understand Michael Moore giving money to Asange for doing what amounts to nothing, while "progressives" - including Asanage, ignored Mr. Manning. But to suggest that Democrats should treat Manning like a hero for leaking classified information is absurd. Should we examine how ALL detainees are treated? ABSOLUTELY.
