The government handed the defense for Pfc. Bradley Manning around six hundred emails between commanding officers at the Quantico Marine brig in Virginia, where Manning was held in pretrial confinement for nine months. The emails make up just less than half of a cache of possibly relevant emails in the government’s possession, 84 of which were already turned over to the defense.

Details about the conditions of Bradley Manning’s incarceration — specifically the denial of in-cell exercise allowed described by his attorney — surprised me. Based on my experience with the incarceration of federal inmates and pre-trial inmates in Special Housing Units / Solitary Confinement, federal regulations allows for a regular exercise period and Bradley Manning hasn’t been allowed exercise. Why are Manning’s military detention conditions different from federal pre-trial conditions specified by regulations?

Last night anonymous military officials admitted to NBC’s Jim Miklaszewski that Quantico Brig Commander James Averhart placed Bradley Manning on suicide watch as a way to punish him for failure to obey an order.
The admission comes after Manning’s friend David House was detained by military police and prevented from visiting him at Quantico last weekend. Jake Tapper of ABC News asked Robert Gibbs about the incident yesterday during a White House press briefing, and if the administration is concerned about the way Manning is being treated. Gibbs referred him to “the authorities that are holding him [Manning].”
