Is This America, or East Germany?

I’m starting to wonder:

Military officials admit Bradley Manning was put on ‘suicide watch’ to punish him. (We only found this out because David House doesn’t cow or scare easily, this despite the Feds taking his laptop away and doing other bits of harrassment.)

— Why is Manning being treated like this? Because the Feds desperately want him to confess, as (as Emptywheel and Jane Hamsher have long suspected) they literally have no case against him in the Wikileaks affairs. Seriously.

Breaking News: Water Is Wet

Posted by MEC on January 25, 2011

The Bush regime routinely broke the law* by treating the West Wing as Republican campaign headquarters. They also routinely designated travel by senior officials as official government business when the purpose of the trips was political, to stick the taxpayers with the cost.

I am so surprised.

Actually, I will be surprised if there are any consequences for this report, even just making the RNC reimburse the taxpayers for the travel costs.

(* I know, I could have ended the sentence there.)
