Did not hear about this in the mainstream news, which to my mind is nothing short of shocking.

"The attorney representing Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army private accused of releasing military reports to WikiLeaks, made his first public speaking appearance on Monday.
Army PFC Bradley Manning's civilian defense lawyer, David Coombs, spoke to an audience in Washington D.C. on the alleged "unlawful pretrial punishment" that PFC Manning was subjected to for nine months while at the Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia. He also provided an overview of the defense motions before the court and other facts regarding the U.S. v. Manning case.
The event follows a major pretrial hearing for Manning at Fort Meade, MD, from November 27 to December 2. At last week's pretrial hearing, Coombs moved to dismiss all charges with prejudice based on Manning's treatment. The government's alleged denial of PFC Manning's right to a speedy trial is also before the military court.
The event was hosted by the Bradley Manning Support Network, which is responsible for Manning's legal defense expenses."
There's almost no way NOT to have some political overtones in the soveriegnty area - since it covers government and how the government chooses to handle people and ideas - but this is the perfect area for this. You will find sovereignty issues in the UK and other countries, too - since sovereignty belies "slavery to the existing political/financial system."
I'm so glad we got through the American elections without a massive split into the various political parties (soooo divisive) - but Bradley Mannings issues are not "party" or "president" dependent.
