@Shoq Are you staying on top of military/gov handling of Bradley Manning? The guy needs a lot of support. Psych torture.
Meryl at Beanstalk @Meryl333
@Shoq WikiLeaks & Manning need attention. All quashing of information (net issues) need consistent, persistent light on it from #p2
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 Yeah.. I know all those stories. I am not persuaded there is anything unusual about his detainment.
Meryl at Beanstalk @Meryl333
@Shoq Really? Then that is a sad indictment of what we've become accustomed to. If not unusual, all the more scary.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 sorry, but all this hysteria comes from one source. There is no evidence of anything any different from most espionage suspects.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 And any spin that there is comes from those same sources. I simply am not persuaded there is anything wrong here.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 In february, a prisoner in that same brig killed himself. They won't change their policy for Jane.
Shoq Value @Shoq
Only in America would a nation overwhelmingly dominated by right wing media,allow that media to be labeled as left wing media. #p2
Meryl at Beanstalk @Meryl333
@Shoq Greenwald is not Jane. & public attention on abuse of human rights is always appropriate... esp. in our own country where we vote.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 I just don't see those abuses yet. I hear descriptions from supporters who want to make a prisoner into a martyr.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 I have read account after account. There isn't one thing that strikes me as even odd.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 Ask any marine ever held in a brig for a serious offend. Have you? I have. This is absolutely unremarkable.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@Meryl333 And the ONLY people to claim it's remarkable are Greenwald and Hamsher. We'll see what the UN says. I bet "nothing'
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald AI asks for a "review" of treatment. Whose reports are they basing the need for it on? Fox News? http://bit.ly/hyT4xA
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald And that AI story appeared y'day. I'd not seen it. Who prior claimed said inhumane treatments (besides you & his allies)?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald I'm waiting for u, or some1, to tell me how othr espionage suspects are treated in mil jails, historically. Have I missed that?
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@Shoq AI said it was "unnecessarily harsh and punitive" and violative of America's treaties - your claim was totally false
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@Shoq The LA Times denounced it weeks ago as "inhumane" http://is.gd/g7kahq - you'll say anything to defend your leader. Amazing
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald I keep wondering why your reporting has not included detailed history of other detention practices (and suicides in that brig)?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald Wouldn't such histories help make the case that Manning's treatment is in fact unusual, relative to other espionage suspects?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald So if I contest reporting on a story, my only wish is to defend "dear leader," or perhaps a military culture I despise?
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald This is more of that same bullying you are famous for, lately, Glenn. Your fans love it. It's not "civil" nor compelling.
Shoq Value @Shoq
.@ggreenwald Your attempts to link this to Obama, just made it more apparent that Manning isn't your real interst here. Keep talking.
Glenn Greenwald @ggreenwald
@Shoq I keep wondering why you wrote a claim you now know to be completely, undeniably false and don't correct it.

So I was saying to Midge, Midge I says @willpostforfood 28/01/2011 02:36:02 WIB
@Shoq @snarkadelia Sorry to jump in but @Shoq seems to be saying that Military has never falsified reports. Didn't Mannings leaks prove they did?

@Shoq @snarkadelia Another thing. Engagement report concerning death of Pat Tillman.
