The Salon article, "The inhumane conditions of Bradley Manning's detention" at http://www.salon.com/news/opinion/glenn_greenwald/2010/12/14/manning alleges (and it seems true to me) that Manning has been held in psychologically crippling solitary confinement and is denied even a sheet and pillow for his bed.
No civilized nation should treat its prisoners this way - whether proven guilty or not. America IS a civilized nation, but if our military is treating him in the way that the Salon piece alleges, we are not acting like a civilized nation.
I love America and want it to be a moral example to the world of justice for all.
