Today, December 17th, is Bradley Manning’s 25th birthday.

Instead of celebrating with loved ones like many others who turn 25 do, he will be spending it in pre-trial detention.

The US Military and its contractors have got away with much worse over the years – and thats only the crimes in the public domain – and yet it chooses to pursue this particular case with such cruel vigour. It really begs the question of where its priorities lie.

Bradley’s shameful and degrading mistreatment in detention, including at one stage being kept in a cage, is stain on the conscience on Obama and the wider Democratic administration; and a betrayal of the freedoms which America proudly trumpets to the wider world.

Birthday wishes of freedom & justice for Bradley, may his next birthday be spent in the freedom and company of loved ones.
