Message from Anonymous: Operation Manning

"March 23 2010, Private Bradley Manning, a 23-year-old Army intelligence analyst, was arrested and incarcerated on suspicion of leaking classified United States documents about Iraq and Afghanistan wars, as well as diplomatic cables of the United States embassies. There was also a video in the leaked documents now known to the world as Collateral Murder. This video shows two American airmen in an AH-64 Apache helicopter lying to their ground controller about the presence of armed insurgents on the ground in Baghdad. The ground controller then gives them permission to fire on the Iraqi civilians. 12 civilians are killed, two of which were Reuters journalists. Arrested in Baghdad and jailed in Kuwait, Bradley Manning was then moved to the military brig at Quantico Virginia and while kept in complete isolation allegedly awaiting trial, he was subject to treatment described by hundreds of legal experts as torture. Bradley Manning still waits for a pre-trial hearing one year later. Locked in a 10 by 6 foot cell for 23 hours a day without sheets, a pillow, personal effects or his glasses, and forced to sleep naked during the mandatory 7 hour sleep cycle. All of this abuse was committed under the pretense of Manning?s alleged suicide risk. Bradley Manning?s lawyer David Coombs, had said that it was a violation of the military rules, because Quantico?s psychologist denied that ?"
