Standing up for Bradley in the House of Commons

Michael Whitney on Firedoglake published this terrific news that the UK House of Commons debated Bradley Manning's long detention (300+ days) under inhumane conditions. You can see a video of the points raised by MP Ann Clwyd , who represents part of Wales.

Manning lived there for a time, and his mother still does. Can Bradley be considered a British citizen? Apparently there is some ground to think he might be able to claim this status since his mother is Welsh.

Foreign Office minister Henry Bellingham first said that the U.S. is a beacon of human rights around the world (which made this viewer LOL) but then that his government intended to continue bringing pressure on the US about their cruel treatment of Bradley Manning.

 Support Bradley here.
