Bradley Manning is alleged to have leaked the Secret US Embassy Cables now being released by Wikileaks, which detail widespread corruption and deceit in governments around the world. Despite this heroic act, Manning has been held captive for over 210 days under the most repressive level of military detention, referred to by many experts as inhumane and torturous.  He is being confined and isolated by force in a small cell for 23 hours a day, denied all forms of privacy and personal belongings, forced to surrender clothing when he sleeps and denied pillows and sheets, denied access to relevant news and communication with many contacts, denied the ability to exercise, and is likely experiencing psychosis, identity destruction, hallucinations, or other forms of extreme psychological breakdown associated with solitary confinement.

Let’s start dialing. James Averhart and Daniel Choike are personally and morally responsible for the trauma Bradley is experiencing. Manning must be released immediately. Exposing the crimes of a government is heroic, and Manning shouldn’t be punished for it.
