Bradley Manning is now said to be in a catatonic state, after having been submitted to continuous torture and inhumane treatment by his own gouvernment. Further down you can all see for yourselves the methods being used. How can anyone, even if they don't agree with what Bradley Manning has done, support this?
In 2005, General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said: "It is absolutely the responsibility of every U.S. service member, if they see inhumane treatment being conducted, to try to stop it."
Apparently those rules do not apply and never did, when it comes to their own US soldiers who dare to tell the truth about warcrimes committed by their own gouvernment. The torture of Bradley Manning continues. Probably they are pressuring him to try to reveal the connection between him and Julian Assange so they can fry him too.
That's probably also why the Swedish prosecutors were in no hurry to arrest or question Julian Assange after the sexcrime accusations last year. The US allies needed more time to work on Manning. Well they seem to have done a pretty good job of it.
The whole world is laughing at Sweden and it's ridiculous justice system, but what do the Swedish media do? They laugh right back at the rest of the world, for being so dumb that they don't realize that Sweden is the most superior country in the world. That is, sadly a common Swedish trait.
Do you remeber the scandal in Abu Ghiraib? Do you remember who took the fall for it? Eleven soldiers were convicted in courts martial, sentenced to military prison, and dishonorably discharged from service. Two soldiers, Specialist Charles Graner, and his former fiancée, Specialist Lynndie England, were sentenced to ten years and three years in prison, respectively, in trials ending on January 14, 2005 and September 26, 2005. But the big guys walked as usual. Rumsfeldt, Bush, Chaney, all innocent little lambs.
Americans are told it's unpatriotic not to support the war in Iraq and Afganisthan. It's unpatriotic to reveal secrets about gross warcrimes to the public. Then you deserve to die or to be tortured to the brink of insanity. Then you are a traitor.
Well I am not an american, but I do know a little about the american constitution, and especially the bill of rights. About the freedoms the founding fathers fought for and gave their people, and it is a beautiful document. Just like the european declaraiton of human rights. The founding fathers would have been proud of private Bradley Manning. He is the true patriot, wanting to protect the values and pride of America against greedy warmongers and murderers. This is the way they thank him.
Thank god she didn't become vicepresident. She is a person that should give any sane human being chills.
Some of the basic individual rights of all Americans and Europeans: Freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom of assembly, the right to personal privacy, and the ban of punishment of anyone without a due process of law!
Neither Bradley Manning or Julian Assange have been charged with any crimes! Still they are being held in captivity and tortured!
I can't believe the media just stand idly by while this is happening right in front of their eyes. Still most of the information comes from, what I guess can be called, "the resistance". Blogs, and hackers that won't stand by while they take away our rights one by one. And where the hell are Amnesty International? Swedish Amnesty have not said a word as far as I know. They are only concerned with rights for women these days. Shame on all of you. You are being paid to do this job, but leave it to people doing it for free.
Can you stomach seeing the CIA interrogation methods?
"To hell with human rights", said Bush. "Yes to hell with them" said Rumsfeldt, "Yep" said Chaney. And the CIA issued new instructions to it's interrogators.
America is at war with terror, then everything goes.
Below are the CIA documents. Can you imagine being an interrogator? Having to apply these methods to human beings? Can you imagine being the one having to do the "dirty work"?
If I had a choise, I would rather be the prisoner than the interrogator. To me it would not be humanly possible to treat anyone like this. No matter what they had done. I couldn't do it, or live with myself afterwards.
But there seem to be people cut out for this, and it doesn't seem to be a question of gender either. This is being done right now by federal employees in the worlds "greatest democracy", against one of their own soldiers, who put his life on the line to defend not just America, but also the the human rights in the whole world.
Please stop this. It's not worthy of a state that claim to defend freedom and democracy.
