While the media fervor has subsided around Bradley Manning’s conditions at a Marine brig in Quantico, VA, we all need a reminder that nothing has changed for Bradley. He still spends 23 out of 24 hours alone in his cell in severe isolation, with severe restrictions on his social contact, news consumption, freedom to exercise, and ability to sleep.

That’s why it was encouraging to see the LA Times editorialize last week on Bradley Manning’s conditions, calling his imprisonment “inhumane” and “indefensible.”
