Thanks for reading, Sharon. And you are absolutely right to point out the lack of attention to the time Chelsea Manning recently spent in solitary confinement.
It is coercive, and there is no justifiable purpose for keeping her in jail. That is especially true now that WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange is in a jail in the UK and faces extradition. He was indicted. There is a case against him already, albeit a political one. They do not need her testimony to make a case against Assange, and she should be free.
