Noticed alarms from Jane and David on Twitter.  Kept waiting for story to appear here.

They are being detained at Quantico.  Vehicles towed.  How will they get back to DC? Anyone near there that can give them a ride?

Here's a timeline of what happened today from Firedoglake:

Statement of Events: Bradley Manning’s Primary Visitor Detained at Quantico

Update From Jane:

Quantico top brass made sure we were held until visiting hours were over & impossible 4

CRYSTAL clear @tominwindsor: Marine top brass showed up personally 2 make sure Bradley Manning got no visitor this week.

BREAKING: Military Harassing David House, Jane Hamsher for Visiting Bradley Manning
We tried to leave & they wouldn't let us

If we could, perhaps we bypass criticism of Jane, David, and WikiLeaks.

The issue is the treatment being received right now.

For those on twitter you can follow

@janehamsher and @DavidMHouse

Oh my.  This seems so wrong to me.  David had a visitors permit.  They were detained and their vehicles are on on tow trucks.  Destination unknown.

What do you think of this?

FireDogLake now has live twitter feed up

Jane Hamsher is with David House who is trying to visit Pvt. Bradley Manning at Quantico today while carrying a petition with 42,000 signatures requesting humane treatment for Manning. The military isn’t making it easy at all. We’re publishing her tweets as well as David House’s tweets here as a post in case you haven’t been able to follow on Twitter.

Is this treatment Constitutional?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
