It takes courage to take on the issue that has the “Professional Left”, aka the Firebaggers, all agog and shrieking. Matt Osborne had that courage yesterday [he says it’s not courage, rather conviction] when he took on the topic of Bradley Manning’s treatment during his incarceration before being formally charged.
Manning has not been convicted — yet — but there is nothing especially harsh or unusual about his conditions. The Rosenbergs were isolated. Aldrich Ames was isolated. There is no 'plan' to drive Bradley Manning insane. He’s a prisoner accused of giving away his country’s secrets. Such prisoners are held in solitary confinement as standard counterintelligence protocol. Who wants a caught spy to tell the other side what you have sweated out of him in the interrogation room? Who wants him to be free to do more damage?
Thank you, Matt.
