He's being held in solitary at Quantico more for his own protection more than anything else. That's a walk in the park compared to being held in solitary in say, the SuperMax in Florence Colorado. IIf he was in the general pop he'd be shanked and bleed out before lunch.

What he did was download off the SIPR network, it only goes up to Secret. Yeah, some embarassing stuff was leaked, but hardly earthshaking and yes, some of it was still classified. We can thank him for having the IA folks lock down the CD-W capability now. Although you can apply for an exception to it to free up your CD-W capability. The truly sensitive stuff is located on other networks that are locked down and way more secure than SIPR.

This idiotic soldier is NOT protecting our country, but instead is pushing it toward certain destruction by enabling our enemies, both foreign and domestic, through the exposure of sensitive diplomatic materials.

He is no traitor, sir.

He is a thief, sir.
He is a traitor, sir.
He is a NWO pawn, sir.
He is probably unbalanced, sir.
He is probably enjoying the attention, sir.

He is a hero in the truest sense of the word.

He is a tool in the truest sense of the word.

All this idiot did was steal; disobey orders; prove he isn't trustworthy; enable the enemies of this country; destroy diplomatic processes that have taken years to build; probably get many people who are working for freedom in the field killed; and enabled the NWO more by disabling soverign nations and their diplomatic processes.

The leaked documents show that diplomats get testy and call each other names behind each others backs. SO WHAT? They show that countries spy on each other. SO WHAT? They show that countries spy on the United Nations. SO WHAT? None of that is new. The spying, that everyone does on everyone else, is important for national security. To claim that the theft of these documents and subsequent posting of them online makes someone a hero .. that's twisted and absurd.

So .. far left wing MSNBC claims that the traitor who stole state secrets and published them is being held in 'torture like conditions' because he's in solitary? :shk: Sounds like they are his cheerleaders. I'm not surprised, considering it's MSNBC. FACT .. you take an oath to defend this country and then you commit treason .. you are going to solitary confinement. It's just that simple. 1 - because he deserves to be there. 2 - for his own safety since he's now a big name and inmates love to make a name for themselves behind bars by off'ing other big names. The MSNBC story is dumb.

He's got it good in there...Anti-depressants, Visits, and more mail than he can shake a stick it...He's got it better than anyone else in Supermax..And he's getting alot of attention, most 23/01 inmates are COMPLETELY isolated..He knew the consequences when he made his decision, his comfort is a small price to pay.

Thats who assange was talking about when he got released yesterday, he said that there are other people a in prison in solitary who need our support.

Ha....this thread is about someone almost being tortured.....He was aware of and had access to read any UCMJ actions which would cover his "whistle-blowing"....maybe he should have run his idea by someone else first. Anyway maybe it will toughen him up.

Gotta clear up the air regarding Manning's horrible conditions

His cell is 6'x12'

He is allowed to watch television during the day. The television stations are limited to the basic local stations. His access to the television ranges from 1 to 3 hours on weekdays to 3 to 6 hours on weekends.

At 5:00 a.m. he is woken up (on weekends, he is allowed to sleep until 7:00 a.m.). Under the rules for the confinement facility, he is not allowed to sleep at anytime between 5:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. If he attempts to sleep during those hours, he will be made to sit up or stand by the guards.

From 7:00 p.m. to 9:20 p.m., he is given correspondence time. He is given access to a pen and paper. He is allowed to write letters to family, friends, and his attorneys. Each night, during his correspondence time, he is allowed to take a 15 to 20 minute shower.

On weekends and holidays, he is allowed to have approved visitors see him from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m.

He is only allowed to have one book or one magazine at any given time to read in his cell. The book or magazine is taken away from him at the end of the day before he goes to sleep.

He is prevented from exercising in his cell. He does receive one hour of “exercise” outside of his cell daily. He is taken to an empty room and only allowed to walk.

For all you out there spending your nights wringing your hands over the confinement conditions of Private Manning, here’s a holiday suggestion. Why don’t you contact the U.S.O. and see if you can do something to brighten the days of service members who didn’t sell out their nation? Trust me, you’ll feel better about yourself after you do.

That should do it.
