    Report: Bradley Manning, Alleged WikiLeaks Source, in Solitary Confinement

    His trial is nowhere near beginning, but Bradley Manning is allegedly already being treated like a threat by his military jailers.

    The Army private who told a friend he was responsible for downloading and passing on the government documents that made WikiLeaks famous is being held in solitary confinement 23 hours a day in Quantico, Va., without a pillow or blankets, according to a report from Salon.

    In an interview with CBS News last week, a spokesman for his defense fund said Manning's trial is far from getting underway. The Army has to complete a psychological evaluation before pre-trial hearings can begin, and the defense and prosecutors are still in the process of haggling over who will conduct the evaluation.

    What exactly are they afraid he is going to do if they do not put him in solitary? What is the point of not allowing him to have blankets?

    This isn't good as solitary confinement can have damaging psychological effects, as can be noted here, here, here and here

    Solitary can be because he has caused trouble in the jail, or it could be to protect him from threats of others.

    Yeah, kinda smells like the bogus Newsweek story about "flushing Korans" at Gitmo.

    I'm not saying it is, or is not bogus. I'm simply asking for more than a single source who has not identified it's source.

    That was the problem with Newsweek, too. Was too juicy not to print, but it turned out to be bogus.

    Never mind that millions probably still believe it. I even see it pop up here from time to time.

    I had never heard it was not true, though I never put much thought into it and would have had to work hard to care if it had been true. If it had been true it would have been one of those wrong, but not worth making a big deal about it kinda things.

    For heaven's sake people don't be so lazy that you won't even read the damned article on Salon. It is linked right there in the CBS story. Not a single one of your complaints goes unaddressed.

    He's in a military stockade--not a brig as most MSM sources like to falsely report--and this is the traditional method of confinement.

    And...who gives a **** if his treasonist ass has a blanket, or not? I mean, if this piece-a-**** dies from exposure, I'm not going to shed any tears for his worthless ass.
