President Obama says he accepts the Pentagon's assurances that Bradley Manning's treatment in custody is right and appropriate:
No it isn't. Manning, who has yet to stand trial, has been locked up in a cruel insanity machine. He has been accused of helping leak documents that compromised not the security of our people but the dignity of our leaders.
I'll say it again: I was ready for Obama to disappoint me. I was not ready for him to horrify me.
