UN special rappoteur on torture: Bradley Manning’s treatment cruel and inhuman

Here’s the crux of this Guardian article: “Juan Mendez [the UN special rapporteur on torture] has completed a 14-month investigation into the treatment of Manning since the soldier’s arrest at a US military base in May 2010. He concludes that the US military was at least culpable of cruel and inhumane treatment in keeping Manning locked up alone for 23 hours a day over an 11-month period in conditions that he also found might have constituted torture.”

We should never condone torture, especially not in the name of justice.
