Accused of Helping Wikileaks Soldier Bradley Manning kept naked in Cell

Accused of Helping Wikileaks Soldier Bradley Manning
kept naked in Cell

Who is PFC Bradley Manning and why is held and kept naked by America.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was the Army intelligence analyst suspected of leaking secret government documents to Wikileaks.

In recent months, Private Manning’s supporters have criticized his treatment as unduly harsh, contending that he is being pressured to agree to implicate Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks co-founder, as a conspirator in the leaking of diplomatic and military files. Lieutenant Villiard denied that the new conditions were intended to “pressure or punish” Private Manning.

Nytimes has reported that
Manning will be stripped of his clothing every night as a “precautionary measure” to prevent him from injuring himself, an official at the Marine brig at Quantico, Va.

Private Manning’s lawyer, David E. Coombs, first complained in a blog posting on Thursday that his client had been stripped the previous night, and wrote on Friday that it had happened again. He criticized the measure as an unjustified “humiliation” of his client.

Private Manning will also be required to stand outside his cell naked during a morning inspection, after which his clothing will be returned to him, said a Marine spokesman, First Lt. Brian Villiard.

“Because of recent circumstances, the underwear was taken away from him as a precaution to ensure that he did not injure himself

Lieutenant Villiard said the new rule on clothing, which would continue indefinitely, had been imposed by the brig commander, Chief Warrant Officer Denise Barnes.
He said that he was not allowed to explain what prompted it “because to discuss the details would be a violation of Manning’s privacy.”

If same thing is done by other nations then it becomes big issue.

If they believe that Manning may commit suicide or harm himself then why you are keeping him naked, start his treatment under doctors; let him meet his friends, family who can give him support.
Keep him in a cell which is monitored 24 hours; keep guards with him 24 hours.

Why to keep a person a naked for 7 hours a day?

America should protect the human rights, as global citizens see USA as the global leader then whatever country he or she belong.
But in this era of internet and educated generation if you keep behaving like this
America will lose its all charm and will be treated just like an any other nation.

This has already happened a nation like Pakistan which gets billions of dollars from America is not releasing the American prisoner Davis who is held by Pakistani police.

Is it not shameful act of American government?

I think it is deplorable. Everyone, prisoner or not, should be treated with respect. To humiliate someone, under the guise of keeping them safe, by stripping them of their clothing, is ridiculous. If nothing else, there are now items of pajamas, made of soft paper products that would allow him the modesty of clothing and with which he could not harm himself. If he is a suicide risk, Private Manning should be having additional security, not be treated in this derogatory fashion.
