The Persecution of Pvt. Bradley Manning

"What the Obama administration, and President Obama as direct boss of the AG's office and as commander in chief of the military, has been doing in Manning's case--holding him in solitary confinement in a Marine brig, subjecting him to conditions that the world and international and US law recognize as torture, denying him the right to a speedy trial or court-martial on a charge of allegedly leaking secret documents--all in the attempt to wring a false confession out of him, is exactly what was done for years in the Soviet Union under Joseph Stalin."
