It’s hard to believe how we’re treating Bradley Manning, the man accused (but not convicted) of leaking information to Wikileaks. I can’t condone what he did but whatever happen to justice and innocent until proven guilty? The treatment of Manning with 23 hours of solitary is cruel punishment for someone not even convicted of a crime and is personally approved by the President. Obama keeps sinking to new lows. Despite all his high ideals and lofty rhetoric, he’s quickly turning into an arrogant, indifferent politician. From the Audacity of Hope to the Isolence of Power.
Obama has caved to the power
As events now have served to devour
The man and his soul
In the President’s role
Of an increasingly cruel superpower.
