    Manning's lawyer David E. Coombs provides the following account of his client's daily routine:

    "PFC Manning is currently being held in maximum custody.

    "Since arriving at the Quantico Confinement Facility in July of 2010, he has been held under Prevention of Injury (POI) watch.

    "His cell is approximately six feet wide and twelve feet in length.

    "The cell has a bed, a drinking fountain, and a toilet.

    "The guards at the confinement facility are professional. At no time have they tried to bully, harass, or embarrass PFC Manning.

    "Given the nature of their job, however, they do not engage in conversation with PFC Manning.

    "At 5:00 a.m. he is woken up (on weekends, he is allowed to sleep until 7:00 a.m.).

    "Under the rules for the confinement facility, he is not allowed to sleep at anytime between 5:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.

    "If he attempts to sleep during those hours, he will be made to sit up or stand by the guards.

    "He is allowed to watch television during the day.

    "The television stations are limited to the basic local stations. His access to the television ranges from 1 to 3 hours on weekdays to 3 to 6 hours on weekends...

    "He is allowed to have any combination of up to 15 books and magazines..."

    Poor Pvt. Manning. If Prevention of Injury confinement is not in his best interest then let him have a razor blade and other personal items ... or turn him out into general population ... and see what happens. He'd either kill himself or be killed by other inmates.

    I have no sympathy for the guy.

    I think there are others that assisted the little "fairy", and they should be in there with him.

    I hope he rots there.


    I also think this will play into the whole DADT thing, b/c he is gay, and was "harrassed" by other recruits according some news report I had seen a week or so ago. (cant remember who it was, but she was saying he had been picked on b/c he was gay) So therefore he was just "acting out".

    Are we supposed to shed a tear or something. He brought this on himself. Screw him. But if it's any consolation to the Manning, Assange lovers who spurt off and hang on their every word, the lovely citizens of Berkely just voted Manning a national hero.

    So you think resistance to wars of aggression that were sold to the US public as "defensive" and "necessary" is somehow a bigger crime than those who lied the country into those wars and those who get rich from mass murder?

    Some of you are throwing the word "traitor" at Manning.

    What do you call Dick Cheney?

    Sir?

    Shouldn't we wait until after his trial to resort to suicide or homicide solutions?

    If somewhere in the remaining stash of cables a smoking gun emerges that proves Bush and Cheney and Rummy lied about our reasons for going to war, would that alter your view of what Manning is accused of doing?
