Finally, the Left Is Outraged and Ready to Fight… For Bradley Manning
Finally, a cause worth fighting for.
The far left is outraged over the “tortuous” treatment of American traitor Bradley Manning because the young criminal is forced to sleep in a smock so he won’t kill himself.
NBC recently made the young Wikileaker Manning out to be a victim who was abused because he was gay… And, of course, the teasing forced him to steal the 250,000+ security documents on and release them on the internet.
…And, that’s why we need DADT repealed.
Code Pink has held several protests in support of the Wikileaker.
Thanks to Bradley Manning, never before has a superpower lost control of such vast amounts of sensitive information.
The Guardian reported:
Obama professor among 250 experts who have signed letter condemning humiliation of alleged WikiLeaks source.
More than 250 of America’s most eminent legal scholars have signed a letter protesting against the treatment in military prison of the alleged WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning, contesting that his “degrading and inhumane conditions” are illegal, unconstitutional and could even amount to torture.
The list of signatories includes Laurence Tribe, a Harvard professor who is considered to be America’s foremost liberal authority on constitutional law. He taught constitutional law to Barack Obama and was a key backer of his 2008 presidential campaign.
Tribe joined the Obama administration last year as a legal adviser in the justice department, a post he held until three months ago.
He told the Guardian he signed the letter because Manning appeared to have been treated in a way that “is not only shameful but unconstitutional” as he awaits court martial in Quantico marine base in Virginia.
The US soldier has been held in the military brig since last July, charged with multiple counts relating to the leaking of thousands of embassy cables and other secret documents to the WikiLeaks website.
Under the terms of his detention, he is kept in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day, checked every five minutes under a so-called “prevention of injury order” and stripped naked at night apart from a smock.
Tribe said the treatment was objectionable “in the way it violates his person and his liberty without due process of law and in the way it administers cruel and unusual punishment of a sort that cannot be constitutionally inflicted even upon someone convicted of terrible offences, not to mention someone merely accused of such offences”.
You’d think… considering the wacky decisions made by this Obama White House that most legal scholars would want to distance themselves from the loons. Not so with Laurence Tribe, the foremost liberal authority on constitutional law in America. Once again, it shows you the caliber of crackpots who are teaching our children at today’s left-wing universities.
