The conditions under which presumed WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning are being held have been tightened again. Even US politicians believe they're illegal. In the latest development, a key State Department official has resigned over critical remarks he made about Manning's detainment.

Subject: Opportunity to push doctors to reinforce their rejection of torture (re. Bradley Manning)
Date: Thu, 10 Mar 2011 23:16:18 +0000 Dear Madam, Sir
The harsh conditions in which Bradley Manning, the accused WikiLeaks leaker, are being held have helped make him a cause celebre on parts of the left, but the complaints have generated little official government sympathy -- until now.

RepowerAmerica: Tell the #EPA: Don't Delay - #BP #Oil #gas #gmo #h2 o #hot #law #rig #Bird #Coal #Gulf #Save #Kids

To: "Michael L. Love" Dear Michael L., I'm Christina Simeone, Policy Director here at Repower
America, and I wanted to share an important piece of news
with you. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning
to limit global warming pollution from big fossil fuel
industries like power plants and petroleum refineries. These
industries alone account for about 40% of the global warming pollution in the U.S. -- making them the two largest sources
of emissions. Here's where you come in. The EPA is charged with developing
rules called New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) that
will protect public health, reduce the pollution that causes
climate change, and send a signal to polluters that they
need to invest in clean energy technologies. It's crucial that the EPA sticks to its schedule and develops
strong rules. Between now and March 18, the EPA is accepting
comments on their plans. They will definitely be receiving
comments from the coal, gas and oil industries. Make sure
they hear from you, too. http://acp.repoweramerica.org/contact-the-epa These rules are common sense. The EPA was created to
understand our impact on our environment and protect the
health of our people. An overwhelming majority of scientists are united in their understanding of the effects of global warming pollution and the EPA is charged with developing rules based on that science. Yet strong special interest groups are working to derail that process. The EPA needs to hear that you support their efforts to
limit global warming pollution from these industries. That's
why you need to encourage the EPA to issue strong New Source
Performance Standards without delay. The science is clear: Climate change is happening.
Unfortunately, big polluters will make big profits if they
mislead the American public about that fact. We need you to
counteract and counterbalance their money and their voice by
sending a comment to the EPA today. Fill out the form below, and we'll deliver your comment to
the EPA before the March 18 deadline: http://acp.repoweramerica.org/contact-the-epa Thanks, Christina Simeone Policy Director Repower America Paid for by the Alliance for Climate Protection To unsubscribe go here: http://firstname.lastname@example.org

A 'sarcastic quip' that a U.S. Army private made about his predicament at a Marine Corps brig may have led to orders that he strip naked each night, the soldier's attorney said Saturday.
Beginning on Wednesday night, Pfc. Bradley Manning, who's facing preliminary charges related to massive leaks of classified information to the online publisher WikiLeaks, was forced by authorities at the Marine Corps Brig in Quantico, Va. to sleep naked in his cell and remain naked through a jail roll call in the morning.

If there was ever doubts about whether the editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, is a journalist, recent events erase those doubts and put him at the forefront of a movement to democratize journalism and empower people. The U.S. Department of Justice is still trying to find a way to prosecute Assange and others associated with [...]
