Hillary’s mouthpiece obfuscates on Manning


It wasn’t all that long ago that Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Philip J. Crowley was forced to quit after he had the temerity to suggest that that the Pentagon’s treatment of suspected WikiLeaker Private First Class Bradley Manning “is ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid.”

Crowley’s acting replacement, Mark C. Toner certainly won’t follow Crowley’s honest path, as is made obvious in this bit of byplay with Associated Press reporter Matthew Lee, and Reuters scribe Arshad Mohammed over complaints from Juan E. Mendez, the U.N. special rapporteur on torture, about the military’s refusal to allow him a private meeting with the young soldier, now held in what critics call an abusive form of solitary confinement [preciously, scroll down].
