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

    PJ Crowley - Bradley Manning - BBC

    Is the treatment of him reasonable? Clearly the White House doesn't believe so. Is it intended to be punitive, preventive or aimed at ensuring he is totally isolated from the outside world? Is it overkill given the absence of threat he now constitutes.

    He's hasn't been executed, so I don't think his treatment has risen to the level of, "reasonable". They need to come in, in the middle of the night, wake him up and put a couple rounds in his ****ing grape. That would be reasonable treatment for a traitor.

    He's no threat to anyone for any reason, I don't see why they have to guantanamize him. He may leak in your face though and shatter whatever little nationalistic political reality you believe in. Which is probably a threat to national security.

    Once again, U.S. policy is decided by a bunch of idiots. Manning was obviously going to be in the media spotlight and should have been treated with kid gloves. He is only a threat if given access to pathetic security system filled with secret documents and there is no practical reason for abusing him. We have sacrificed yet more credibility when we criticize other regimes for mistreating prisoners and have gained nothing in return.

    He's being treated like any other prisoner on suicide watch. That treasonous little weasle does not require or deserve "special treatment."

    The sissy ought to get the Abner Louima treatment (that would be a final act of mercy, like a last meal), then hammer his face into pulp and hang him from his achilles tendons in front of the pentagon. Don't really know where the front of a five sided building would be, but you get the point.

    Some answers are right in the linked article:

    Mr Obama added that some aspects of Pte Manning's treatment "has to do with his safety as well".
    Military officials have said this is standard procedure for people deemed a suicide risk.
    What you have is a guy who worked against his own country, being held in a military prison(which is where he belongs as military personnel), and people can't figure out why he is in solitary? Right or wrong, he would not survive 2 days in general population. Add in the suicide watch and, well, that pretty much explains things.

    What is it about his treatment that you find objectionable? As I understand it, their reasonong for stripping him at night is solely based on his repeated smart ass comments about hanging killing himself with his underwear.

    Heres a simple reality. When you join the military there are certain things you can do and certain things you cant. He did one of those things you really a lot CANT do. No one is beating him or torturing him.

    Oh...and heres the funny part...this guy doesnt have to worry about getting raped in prison (not that I am advocating violence towards him in any way). The reality is that Julian Asange as been riding him for a few years...and he will likely spend the rest of his life in prison for his actions and Asange's cheap thrills. Knowing you get to spend the rest of your life in a little cell for releasing a bunch of classified documents that hasnt exactly shocked the world...priceless.

    You'd figure he'd get along with the rest of the 'traitors'...
