    unless you have proof of that? It's just standard incarceration for a probable dangerous threat to national security and suicide watch. If your upset with how he's being held, what does that have to do with Obama or the executive branch?

    Your just hyperventilating to create controversy where there is none.

    And proof of what claim? What the hell are you talking about? Didn't information get stolen?

    And the "executive branch" doesn't accuse anybody of anything. You have proof of this?
    I think that's the AG's job or some other military branch of law enforcement.

    Again... you're just a shill trying to blame Obama for anything and everything.
    pathetic.

      1. Even if abusive treatment of suspects is "standard procedure" that wouldn't make it any less abusive.  However, I have seen accounts that other prisoners accused of espionage were not held under these conditions.
      1. Ad hominem arguments ("hyperventilating to create controversy") are a sign that the person engaging in them knows the weakness of his own position.
      1. Yes, information was presumably stolen, since somebody passed it to Wikileaks.  What has not been proven is that that somebody was Manning.  That's what that quaint tradition of holding a trial is about.
      1. The military is part of the executive branch (hence "commander in chief").  The military has arrested and charged Manning.  Ergo, the executive has accused Manning.
      1. ("you're just a shill trying to blame Obama for anything and everything")  see point #2.

    •  Oh and ... (0+ / 0-)

      Regarding your ad hominem attack ("Again... you're just a shill trying to blame Obama for anything and everything. pathetic") ... I invite you to back it up by pointing to any comment by me in the context of the Manning matter that even mentions Obama.  You won't find it.
