The ongoing abuse of Bradley Manning has been repeatedly criticized, not only by the international community, but also by leading legal scholars in the United States and senior administration officials. Many more admire his conduct - exposing blatant war crimes - and providing the US citizens information their own government was misleadingly denying them.

Subject: Allow the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Juan Mendez an unmonitored visit with Bradley Manning.
Lt. Col Anne Edgecomb
Office of Public Affairs,
Office of the Secretary of the Army
Dear Lt Col Edgecomb:
I write to request that the Army allow the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Torture Juan Mendez an unmonitored visit with Bradley Manning.
The treatment of Bradley Manning is carefully watched by people around the world, and refusing an unmonitored visit by Mr Mendez with Bradley Manning and other detainees, further diminishes any standing the US may have had regarding compliance with fundamental Human Rights.
