#AskObama Twitter Townhall: Will He Take a Question on Bradley Manning?

There are a number of users on Twitter asking and urging President Barack Obama to address the case of Bradley Manning during the #AskObama Twitter townhall today. Will he take a question? Or will he or his handlers find they would like to avoid addressing people's concerns on this alleged military whistleblower to WikiLeaks?
