What do you think of Bradley Manning's detention?

What do you think of the way the US is treating Bradley Manning? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation about the 23-year-old US army officer accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Manning faces 22 charges, including "aiding the enemy." His lawyer says he's being held in solitary confinement in a tiny cell at a Navy brig in Quantico, Virginia. Why has his treatment and confinement been so extreme? And what do you think of the charges against Bradley Manning? Join us at 10 or send an email to It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.

PFC. Bradley Manning if convicted should be dealt with as any traitor should be. This young man took an oath to his country and he knew exactly what the UCMJ was and that he fell under its laws.He should be treated as an enemy of the USA and punished to the full extent of the Uniform Code of Military Justice allows which is the death penalty. If he is guilty, He put many lives in danger and turned his back on his country let him hang by the neck until he is dead and hope God has mercy on his soulm.

You have three stooges on this show talking about how Manning is a hero and "truth-teller". He just downloaded everything he could fit on a flash drive and gave it to Assange. That is not wistleblowing.It is foolish and treasonous and he can stay in the brig for all I care. You never have anyone on this show who might add an alternative view. I imagine you all sitting around your Berkeley Hills mansions drinking wine and wondering why everyone outside your zipcode is so uncivilized, clapping each other on the back because you have such clarity of vision. You are weaklings, there are crimes and there are consequences. Brad
