GRITtv: The F Word: Army Mental Health Care Failed Manning
The uprisings in Egypt have inspired all sorts of people, including Private Bradley Manning, the young man being held in solitary confinement in Quantico, accused of being the source for Wikileaks. Manning’s friend David House, tweeted after visiting him this week, “Bradley’s mood and mind soared” at the news from Egypt.
Manning’s mental health has been the subject of much debate, the putative explanation for his isolation and extreme treatment, but a new report on an Army investigation finds that a mental health specialist recommended Manning not be deployed to Iraq in the first place. Distributed by Tubemogul.
