    I think they were right to an extent, that some of those who should be holding him to account, aren't doing so. But clearly others are. I'm hearing a lot of opinions over here in Europe that are expressing disappointment that Obama is proving to be such an insipid president. He appears to have little grasp of foreign policy and diplomacy (mind you, more than his predecessor) and other than his health reforms, he doesn't appear to be stamping his mark on domestic US politics either. The Gitmo back-down is disgraceful and in this Manning issue he is being either disingenuous or willfully negligent. "Some of it has to do with his safety." Would that be the shackles he's wearing 24/7?

    Would your country take the Gitmo detainees? Spain has its own problems.....I've been there.

    I believe it has taken four of them. I know the UK has too, and Germany. Every country has its problems, so what?

    Wow, a whole four? How in the world can you manage? And how much did your government over there soak us for the privilage of sending four of them there? What did your country do with them? Do you know where they are?

    Crawley's been fired, Manning is still being hung up by his ankles every night, and all is right with the world.

    Re: PJ Crowley: Bradley Manning's treatment by US 'stupid'

    over the top rhetoric?

    representatives of the "professional left," according to politico today (link above):

    “with his firing of crowley, obama makes a mockery of his own claim to be a constitutional scholar who supports transparency in government"

    “other than obama's tolerance for the same detainee abuse against which he campaigned and his ongoing subservience to the military that he supposedly ‘commands,’ it is the way in which this manning/crowley behavior bolsters the regime of secrecy and the president's obsessive attempts to destroy whistle blowing that makes this episode so important and so telling”

    "i think this is wrong, and it's very hard for me to believe that, circa 2006, senator obama wouldn't say as much”

    obama “owns the treatment of manning now"

    "by firing pj crowley for the offense of protesting against the sadistic military treatment of bradley manning, the president has now put his personal weight behind prisoner abuse"

    "the man who once said that forced nudity was a form of torture now takes the word of those enforcing it over a distinguished public servant”

    Jeez, you could show some gratitude. You captured them, if you resent paying for them to be relocated, keep 'em yourselves. I've no idea where they are, nor do I need to. I'm sure the authorities will be keeping an eye on them if they need keeping an eye on.

    Nothing you said in any way addressed any point made. All you managed to do is prove that people will rally for stupid things, which we already knew following Beck's rally last year.
