Things that do not make me proud of America

Per Glenn Greenwald, here is a legal filing by Bradley Manning’s attorney protesting the conditions of his detention in a military prison.  The interesting parts begin on page 7, where he describes why he was put on suicide watch.

It’s noteworthy how the prison staff are using protocols of psychological treatment as a form of coercion/punishment.  It reminds me of how the Soviets used to put dissidents in mental institutions.  It’s hard to understand how these people can sleep at night.  If it bothers you, consider writing a letter.
