The shameful abuse of Bradley Manning - 0 views

    The WikiLeaks suspect's mistreatment amounts to torture. Either President Obama knows this or he should make it his business. The president refused to comment on PJ Crowley's (State department Spokesperson) statement that the treatment of Manning is "ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid". Prolonged isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity - the punishments currently being levied upon Manning - come right out of the manual of the CIA for "enhanced interrogation". Such practices are applied in Guantánamo and Abu Ghraib. It's what the CIA calls "no-touch torture", and its purpose is to demoralise someone to the point of offering a desired confession regardless of whether it is true or false.
