    is that the U.S. government, or more outrageously, that President Obama has tortured this individual. The charge was never that Manning was treated unusually....

    I have no specific knowledge in terms of the degree to which Manning was or was not mistreated. I spoke of former State Department spokesman, PJ Crowley, who resigned his post after he described Manning's treatment as "ridiculous" and "stupid" to the loud approval of Manning's supporters.

    Crowley also stated that Manning was not tortured, to the silence of these same supporters.
