    Jesus Christ, what will it take for you all to stop defending the indefensible?

    The U.S. Army, clearly and unarguably, strove to break Manning's spirit at every step of the way. President Obama, as Commander-in-Chief, was fully briefed on this high profile situation from day one. Not only did he refuse to bring the inhumane treatment to a halt, he endorsed it with his cavalier dismissal of every objection. Yes, President Obama must take responsibility for HIS role in attempting to break Bradley Manning's spirit, and, as this diary so eloquently documents, the President thankfully failed in that attempt.

    Let the 28th Amendment be one to amend the amendment process itself. Then, perhaps, we can transform our Constitution into a living document. (Who CARES what the Founders thought of digital data gathering?)
