Antiwar Radio: Glenn Greenwald

Glenn Greenwald, blogger and former constitutional lawyer, discusses the inhumane detention conditions of accused WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning; eyewitness accounts of Manning’s deteriorating mental and physical condition; studies that show severe isolation has long term psychological consequences and is akin to torture; the government’s domestic “shock and awe” campaign of fear and intimidation against dissidents and whistleblowers; why Manning’s draconian imprisonment may be a negotiating tactic to coerce testimony against Julian Assange; and why the government is now considering conspiracy charges against Assange instead of using the problematic Espionage Act of 1917.
