The Guardian is admittedly a liberal news organization, but in no way is it to be considered politically radical in its opinions.
It’s front page lede:
Manning ‘forced to sleep naked’
WikiLeaks suspect made to relinquish boxer shorts for about seven hours due to ‘situationally driven’ event’.
Bradley Manning and the stench of US hypocrisy
The US condemns human rights abuses abroad yet appears to be allowing the psychological torture of Bradley Manning.
I assert that the civilian is an order of magnitude more powerful than the militian but we do not live in a time of these.
