On March 4, 2011, I wrote: Before Manning and Assange: There was Vanunu Mordechai, which bears repeating now:
[USA-Israel]--On March 2, 2011, The Army announced it had filed 22 additional charges against Pfc. Bradley E. Manning, the soldier suspected of providing classified government documents published by the WikiLeaks anti-secrecy group. The counts against him involve the leaking of the Afghan and Iraq war logs as well as the quarter million State Department cables disseminated last year.
CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reported that the new charges formally accused Manning of using unauthorized software on government computers to extract classified information, illegally download it and transmit the data for public release by what the Army termed "the enemy."
CBS Radio News chief legal analyst Andrew Cohen reported that military officials look like they want to throw the book at Manning, not just to punish him, but also to send a message to other service members who may be tempted to do what Manning allegedly did.
In a written
statement detailing the new charges, the Army said that if Manning were
convicted of all charges he would face life in prison, plus reduction in rank
to the lowest enlisted pay grade, a dishonorable discharge and loss of all pay
and allowances, but they are not seeking the death penalty. 
No mention was made regarding the fact that on January 27, 2011, McClatchy Newspapers reported that Bradley Manning's, direct supervisor warned that Manning had thrown chairs at colleagues and shouted at higher-ranking soldiers in the year he was stationed at Fort Drum, N.Y., and advised he not be sent to Iraq, where his job entailed accessing classified documents through the Defense Department's computer system. But superior officers ignored that advice because the unit was short of intelligence analysts and needed Manning's skills.
"An Army report into the service's high suicide rate concluded in July that military commanders had become so focused on training troops for deployment that they no longer had the time to address issues such as alcoholism, prescription drug abuse and even violence, and instead hoped they'd disappear in combat"The result was a "comedy of errors' as one commander after another assumed someone else was addressing Manning's problems, one official said." 
Manning has been
held in solitary confinement at the Marine brig in Quantico, Virginia, in
inhumane conditions. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs had recently
admitted that the White House was not paying attention to Bradley Manning's
extreme confinement conditions, or the fact that pre-approved visitors of
Bradley's have been detained and interrogated by military police in order to
block their scheduled visit.
pre-trial confinement is supposed to be about ensuring a soldier's presence at
court martial, yet for eight months now Manning has been subjected to extreme
pre-trial punishment through the arbitrary use of rarely applied
regulations--specifically the "maximum security classification' and the
"prevention of injury' order. Manning is allowed no meaningful physical
exercise, he is allowed no social interaction with other inmates, he is kept in
his cell at least 23 hours per day, and he is not allowed out of his cell
without restraints"There is no allegation that Manning did anything but share
truthful information with the American public regarding the realities of our
nation's ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, with absolutely no benefit to
himself, in order to spark public debate regarding foreign policy." 
In 2002, President Bush declared U.S.
citizen, Jose Padilla an enemy combatant and he was stripped of all rights and
detained at a Navy brig in South Carolina where he was held in solitary
isolation for 43 months and denied access to an attorney for two years.
Forensic Psychiatrist Angela Hegarty
examined Padilla [in 2006] and concluded the extreme isolation and torture had
left Padilla essentially brain damaged, "What happened at the brig was
essentially the destruction of a human being's mind."
From 1986 to 2004, Israel kept Vanunu in a tomb sized windowless cell-most all of it in solitary confinement.When he was released he was forbidden to leave the state and speak to foreigners.
