As you all know the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will probably never give America the knowledge and govt. information that AMERICAN CITIZENS DESERVE! I am a strong believer in FOI and FOS (Freedom of Information and Freedom of Speech). I feel that the govt. is being unfair to Mr. Assange and many other supposed WikiLeaker’s. The conflicts in Irag and Afghan is citizens conflicts as well! If there is injustice or great things going on in our wars WE DESERVE AND NEED TO KNOW! AFTER ALL WE AS THE CITIZENS PAY FOR OUR GOVT. AND MILITARY TO BE OUT THERE! FOI AND FOS ALL THE WAY! READ UP ON THE FIRST AMENDMENT! DON’T TAKE THAT AWAY! As you read this story provided by Fox News below you will see more of what I am talking about.

WASHINGTON – Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, the accused source of the WikiLeaks document scandal, will be moved from the Marine Corps base at Quantico, Virginia to a state-of-the-art facility in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, the Pentagon announced late Tuesday.

Jeh Johnson, the Pentagon’s general counsel, told reporters the decision to move Manning was not a response to international criticism surrounding his treatment at Quantico, rather because the Kansas-based facility will better “meet Private Manning’s health and welfare needs given the possibility he will remain in pretrial confinement.”

Manning has been held at the maximum-security detention facility at Quantico since July. Combined with time he spent in Iraq he has been in military custody for 10 months.

During that time Manning’s lawyer has filed numerous complaints, arguing his client was unfairly classified as a maximum-security detainee who posed a risk to his own health. At times Manning was made to stand at attention in the nude at the front of his cell in the morning. He is kept in his cell 23 hours a day, where he was prohibited from exercising. He gets one hour outside a day and eats alone, unlike most other detainees. Officials have said all those measures were for his own protection.

Amnesty International has said Manning’s treatment may violate his human rights and a committee of Germany’s parliament has also raised concerns about his treatment to the White House. Even State Department Spokesman P.J. Crowley was forced to resign last month after calling Manning’s treatment “ridiculous, counterproductive and stupid.”
