Charles P. Pierce: Manning was treated barbarically for 112 days. This didn't happen by accident. [View all]

From Charles P. Pierce:

Manning was treated barbarically over those 112 days. This didn't happen by accident. This wasn't an oversight. It was a policy decision. He was treated that way deliberately by this government. He was treated that way because that is how this administration wanted him treated. This is an administration that simply does not want the people to know what is being done in its name. The last administration didn't want that either, but C-Plus Augustus wasn't a constitutional law professor promising the most open and transparent administration in history, either.) And that's the part of the story that shouldn't go away with Bradley Manning.
