The link for the letter is here. It will be delivered to the Commanding Officer at the Quantico Marine Base brig by David House when he next visits Bradley Manning
Meanwhile, Joshua Holland’s informative and heavily out linked piece notes Glen Greenwald’s observation that:
Having it known that the U.S. could and would disappear people at will to “black sites,” assassinate them with unseen drones, imprison them for years without a shred of due process even while knowing they were innocent, torture them mercilessly, and in general acts as a lawless and rogue imperial power created a climate of severe intimidation and fear. Who would want to challenge the U.S. government in any way — even in legitimate ways — knowing that it could and would engage in such lawless, violent conduct without any restraints or repercussions?
I’m not normally one for on-line petitions and such like. But in the apparent absence of any potentially more effective action, I’d advocate signing the petition whilst hoping that in the New Year some pressure could be brought to bear on our own government to make a statement condemning the inhumane treatment of Bradley Manning; The Number One Unappreciated Person of 2010, according to Johann Hari.
