With respect to Private Manning, I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards. They assure me that they are.I can no longer stand to have my vote held hostage by Democrats to the fact that Republicans may be worse, when those Democrats then get into office and continue Republican practices. What has happened to Manning, convicted of no crime, is a disgrace.
