The Few, the Proud… And Those That Mistreat Bradley Manning

By: Monday March 7, 2011 1:15 pm

The Marines put a lot of stock in their reputation and image. Words like “honor” play a large part in Marine culture, as does the Marine motto “Semper Fi.” The Marines’ recruiting website puts it like this:” Marines are held to the highest standards, ethically and morally. Respect for others is essential. Marines are expected to act responsibly in a manner befitting the title they’ve earned.”

Sadly, CWO Barnes and others above and below her in the chain of command are abusing the reputation of the Corps by their disrespectful and shameful conduct with regard to the Detention of Bradley Manning.

What kind of Marine acts like this? These are “The Few. The Proud.”? In the words of Judge Andrew Napolitano of Fox News, they are also apparently the “KBG-Like.”

What ever happened to Marines like PFC Guy Gabaldon?

Bradley Manning’s friend David House was initially quite concerned about Manning’s state of mind, and felt he was beginning to exhibit some of the damaging symptoms of prolonged isolation including emotional withdrawal and impaired cognitive function. Bradley seemed slow to respond when they spoke, and could not process information as quickly as he normally did. Bradley became excited and engaged, however, when David mentioned the uprisings in Tunisia and Egypt.

Marines Boot Commander Ordering Abuse of Bradley Manning

By: Wednesday January 26, 2011 11:46 am

The Marines have replaced the commander in charge of the Quantico base, where Bradley Manning has been held in severe isolation for more than seven months. Commander James Averhart, as commander of the Quantico base, had authority over the conditions of Manning’s detention.
