Solitary confinement 23 hours a day and no trial after 8 months

Julian Assange has given the public access to the truth behind international politics. He has made himself a target and his fear that the U.S will send him to Guantánamo Bay is well founded.

For the moment he is safe, unlike the alleged source of Iraq war leaks, Bradley E. Manning (born December 17, 1987).

Amnesty International has urged the US authorities to alleviate the harsh pre-trial detention conditions of Bradley Manning, the soldier accused of leaking information to Wikileaks.
The US army private, 23, has been held for 23 hours a day in a sparsely furnished solitary cell and deprived of a pillow, sheets, and personal possessions since July 2010.

Assange is getting a lot of publicity while Bradley is losing his sanity in solitary confinement. At the age of twenty three, this young man is only one day older than my own daughter and he is being treated appallingly in the 'home of the free', I feel that his plight should be known.

  1. Well Bradley is a US army private that's why he's being treated so badly. I think they would consider his behavior an act of treason. We all know how America treats these people - Guantanamo Bay prison is the perfect example. So much for the 'land of the free', more like 'home of the brave' - well Assange will have to be brave if the American's get their hands on him, that's why he's fighting so hard.
