Military moves to further isolate Bradley Manning with transfer to Kansas

Bradley Manning Support Network
April 19, 2011,

PFC Mannings transfer from Virginia to Kansas limits his access to his civilian attorney David Coombs of Rhode Island. It also severely limits visitation opportunities by his East Coast family and friends, explains attorney Kevin Zeese, an organizer with the Bradley Manning Support Network.

Congressman Dennis Kucinich declared today, Any move of PFC Manning does not change the underlying fact, which has not been disputed by the Department of Defense, that he has been held under conditions which may in fact constitute cruel and unusual punishment in violation of the 8th amendment.

Ethan McCord, Kansas resident and a former Soldier who appears in the Collateral Murder video that PFC Manning is accused of leaking, declares, Bradley Manning is accused of doing nothing more than heroically telling the truth. I and many others here in Kansas are already planning support actions at Leavenworth.

Im concerned that the military is simply moving to further isolate PFC Manning. The idea that Quantico brig commander CWO2 Denise Barnes, without direction from above, imposed and maintained the current torturous conditions of PFC Mannings detention is ridiculous. However, we will demand that Army officials at Leavenworth finally take responsibility for correcting this ongoing injustice. I know many hold out hope for them to do so, adds Paterson.

2. Glad this is getting a lot more light
Always believed it wasn't about Bradley but the Pentagon. They were really ticked about the release of that video and worried that others might come forward. Bradley is a patriot being used as a pawn to put fear into others. Hope his transfer yields him relief.
