Manning Moved to Leavenworth…

On Wednesday, April 20th, Pfc. Bradley Manning—being held as the WikiLeaks whistle-blower for the past 11 months at the Marine brig in Quantico, VA—was moved to the Joint Regional Correctional Facility (JRCF) in Kansas.

Bradley Manning...

The JRCF is a new facility, built on the USP Leavenworth compound in October of 2010 as part of the Military Corrections Complex.  It houses pre-trial inmates and military personnel serving less than five years.

Manning was initially arrested at Forward Operating Base Hammer near Baghdad, Iraq, in May of 2010.  He was held under a punitive regimen in maximum-security lock-up, despite not having been convicted of anything.

Next to the dog-dish or not, I guess he figures that he’s still in the House…beats being with the rest of us in the Fieldsmore…

Bradley Manning & the American Soul…

The ideal version of justice is that, before the law, a person is innocent until proven guilty.  But for those of us who have any jail and prison experience, the reality is quite different.

Bradley Manning

The current experience of Bradley Manning puts the lie to that idealism and, indeed, reveals the neo-liberals as little more than political stooges (or otherwise ineffectual before conservative corporate power).

Bradley is the 22-yr-old soldier who is accused–but not charged–with supplying WikiLeaks with the secret documents being distributed around the world.

He spent two months in a military jail in Kuwait, and has now been in the infamous Marine brig in Quantico, VA, for the past five months under extraordinary conditions. more…
