This is ridiculous and insane. I don't care who you are, or what your politcs are, this is appalling. We are apparently holding US Army Private Brandley Manning in conditions which amount to torture. He has not yet been charged with a crime. And yet has been held in solitary confinment 23/24 hours a day for 7 *MONTHS* and counting. He is not allowed to excersize. He is allowed no contact w/ the outside world what-so-ever, even to current events. He does not have a pillow or sheets on his bed (despite having never been on suicide watch).
Are you sick yet? You should be. I am. I will be writing letters and calling people. I hope you do too. This is ridiculous. This is illegal. Anyone and everyone up and down the line who is ordering that this go on needs to be tried for torture. Up to and including Obama. This is BS. We aren't supposed to do this. WTF are we becoming?
