Poor traitor Bradley Manning choked back tears in court yesterday before his military trial.
Manning believes he should be released from prison for mistreatment in prison but never complained about conditions during his confinement.
Now he says he was tortured.
Bradley Manning is charged in the biggest security leak in US history.
Yahoo ABC reported:
PFC Bradley Manning choked back tears during a second day of testimony at a hearing before his military trial as he claimed he didn’t tell his family about the conditions of his confinement at the Marine brig at Quantico, Va., because he did not want them to worry.
He also expressed concern that doing so could lead to an end to visiting privileges for his family.
This week’s pre-trial hearing at Fort Meade, Md., outside of Washington, D.C., was focused only on Manning’s nine-month confinement at the Marine brig at Quantico. Details about the hundreds of thousands of classified documents Manning is alleged to have leaked to Wikileaks will not be discussed until his trial, which is scheduled to get underway on Jan. 28.
On Friday, Army prosecutors asked Manning why he had not availed himself of multiple opportunities to complain about the Maximum Custody and Prevention of Injury status he experienced during his nine-month stay at Quantico in 2010-2011.
Army prosecutor Maj. Ashden Fein pointed to weekly detailed forms with his Army supervisors, where Manning routinely categorized the guards and facilities at the brig as “very professional.” The forms did not detail any of the maximum security conditions Manning talked about on Thursday, the first time he has spoken publicly during his almost two-and-a-half years in pre-trial detention.
Fein also read through transcripts of audio recordings made during the visits to the brig by Manning’s family and friends, when he did not complain about the circumstances of his detention to those closest to him.
