After three weeks in confinement , Army Intelligence Analyst Bradley Manning has yet to be charged with any crime .

According to a source in the atricle , this is highly unusual , although this is a complicated case .

There is also the chance that he won't be charged at all due to the potential of 'sensitive information' being released during the course of a trial .

Wikileaks still maintains that it has no knowledge of the documents in question , and Mr. Assange is raising funds to send a legal team to Kuwait to represent Manning .

There is a question as to whether these actions could in some way be construed as implicating Manning . Personally , I don't see that this would implicate him at all , as anyone , who so chooses , can offer to represent him or provide funds for the Defense counsel .

He is being held in the "detention facility for U.S. Central Command" in Kuwait . He can't be held in facilities in Iraq because he cannot be confined with prisoners of war or other foreign nationals .

Calls to his family , seeking comment on the matter , have not been answered .

I hope many will discussed with their families, relatives and friends to write in to their elected representatives to free Bradly Manning.

He is a brave individual and an American. He did not sell national secrets, but exposed criminal and murdering activities within the US military, whom are an institution paid by taxpayers hard earned money to do the right thing and not the criminal thing.

He is entitled to a fair trial, not from a biased military court but a civilian one. Either he be found guilty, exposing even more criminal activities of the US military or he should be freed immediately to speak freely as a citizen is rightfully entitled to.

If we failed to do even this, then one day when TPTB decides to hold us, they will be no one to defend us, with the sacred Constitution ripped to shreds. It's almost already that as one moronic ex-president claim it was just a piece of paper.
