Bradley Manning: marine commander warned detention was inappropriate

November 28, 2012 by legitgov

Bradley Manning: marine commander warned detention was inappropriate 28 Nov 2012 The former commander of Quantico marine base in Virginia has revealed to the court martial of Bradley Manning that he warned his Pentagon superiors that the jail on the base was insufficiently prepared to deal with the long-term detention of the WikiLeaks suspect. Daniel Choike told a pre-trial hearing in Fort Meade, Maryland, that when Manning arrived at the brig on 29 July 2010, having been arrested in Iraq on suspicion of being the source of the massive WikiLeaks dump of state secrets, he informed his superior officer in the Pentagon that in his opinion Quantico was not the right place for the soldier should his detention last long. "I didn't feel that PFC Manning should be detained more than 90 days in the brig," he said. In the end, Manning spent nine months at Quantico -- three times the maximum Choike thought appropriate.
