Rep. Kucinich Requests A Visit With Bradley Manning


I'm glad Kucinich is looking into this. He's one of the few members I'd trust to tell the truth:

Ohio congressman Dennis Kucinich has asked the Defense Secretary Robert Gates for a visit with an Army private suspected of giving classified material to WikiLeaks.

Kucinich, a Democrat who is a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, sent a letter Friday to Gates asking for a visit with Pfc. Bradley Manning.

Manning is being held in a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va.

Kucinich says he is concerned about reports of Manning's treatment while in custody. Manning's lawyer has filed a complaint with the Quantico commander about the conditions Manning is being held under.
