If Justice must be seen to be done, how does this Justice work?
Project Payback MANNING
Bradley Manning was a US marine who was arrested in May 2010 on suspicion of leaking restricted material to whistleblowing site Wikileaks. It should be known, Due to his mental health its argued manning shouldn’t of been in Iraq in the first place, officials even told those in higher command.
In 2010 it was discovered Manning was suffering abuse during his time in isolation including being forced to strip naked in his cell and forced to sleep only in boxer shorts.
1st Lt. Brian Villiard, a spokesman for the military detention facility said this was due to his status as a detainee under “prevention of injury watch.” On the 9th March Manning was order to turn over boxers.
“The intention is not to cause any sort of humiliation or embarrassment,” Villiard said in defence. “But to ensure the safety and security of the detainee and make sure he is able to stand trial.”
Manning said that “the restrictions were “absurd” and that if he wanted to harm himself using an item of clothing, he could do so “with the elastic waistband of his underwear or with his flip-flops.”
Military officials denied the treatment was abuse or abnormal.
In an event that lead to his resignation, State Department spokesman Philip J. Crowley made statements condemning the treatment, allegedly he was forced to resign under pressure from the Obama Administration.
Manning awaits trial on charges that could put him in prison for 52 years, according to the Army although some sources.
Whilst declaring going on the offensive for Manning, Anonymous released a video declaring Department of Defense Press Secretary Geoff Morell and chief warrant officer Denise Barnes as targets and calls on members to dig up personal information on both, including phone numbers, personal histories and home addresses.
Anonymous spokesperson Barrett said that harassment of Quantico officials will be just the first step in a “media war” against those detaining Manning. “Manning is an absolute hero If this means me going to fucking prison, then that’s fine.”
Pentagon spokesman Colonel David Lapan said a probe investigation was requested after news that the hacker group called Anonymous was seeking to disrupt online activities at the Quantico, Virginia, base where Private Bradley Manning is incarcerated.
“The bases at Quantico, including the brig have made law enforcement agencies aware of that as well,” Lapan said.
Manning supporters say the regiment is inhumane and has been deemed unnecessary by psychiatric experts.
Manning was arrrested for showing people the violent side of the army, whilst it can be argued this is the Army, this kind of thing happens their is no excuse for these soldiers in the leaked video ‘collateral murder’ to behave so inhumanly.
