War is a nightmare, in more ways than one…

There is the obvious death and destruction, but there are things that happen in the military that are completely uncalled for. One of these is the situation that Bradley Manning is facing. We’re moving in 1000 days of seclusion for an individual who spoke the truth. Yet, he’s treated as if he were a traitor.

He’s been denied due process, there are flaws all over the place under both the UCMJ as well as the Rules for Courts Martial. He’s been denied a quick and speedy trial, while the government states they are building a case. Alleged murderers get trials faster than Manning, and they are generally not placed in situations that border on torture.

President Obama can right a terrible error when he declared, as Commander in Chief, that Manning was guilty by ordering a full pardon. The only thing that Manning did as expose military abuses, something every soldier is taught to do. His method may have been a little out of line, but the reality is, he brought out the truth, so the hammers of power have to be brought out. But why does it take so long to “build this  case” and all the while, a young man is essentially in a state of tortured existence.
