WikiLeaks and PFC Bradley Manning should be protected by Senator Maria Cantwell and Senator Patty Murray

Dear Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray,

I have been following the treatment of PFC Bradley Manning currently being held in detention at Quantico. It is increasingly obvious to me that his treatment is not humane. He has not been convicted of a crime. I am concerned that the government is treating him poorly because of their wish to bring down WikiLeaks. Much has been written about Julian Assange and I have not seen anything that leads me to believe that there is wrongdoing on the part of Assange or Manning. In fact, it appears that the government doesn't want to be transparent. I firmly believe that accountability happens when people are held to the words and actions they engage in. Whistleblowers have a place in a free society and I am asking you to look into the matter and protect Manning if neccessary.

Thank you.

Maurice Lacunza
