President Obama Endorses Abusive Treatment Of Bradley Manning
For once, the accusation that President Obama is like President Bush rings true:
[ABC's Jake] TAPPER: State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said the treatment of Bradley Manning by the Pentagon is “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid.” And I'm wondering if you agree with that. Thank you, sir.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: With respect [. . .] to Private Manning, I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards. They assure me that they are. I can't go into details about some of their concerns, but some of this has to do with Private Manning's safety as well.
Perhaps the most disgraceful moment of Obama's Presidency.
Speaking for me only
