Over 250 Top US Legal Scholars Condemn The Treatment Of Bradley Manning
from the moral-high-ground dept
The latest is that a who's who of US legal scholars, including the guy who taught President Obama constitutional law (and was a big supporter of Obama during the campaign), have written an open letter condemning the treatment of Bradley Manning as being unconstitutional. That law professor, Laurence Tribe, had actually been a legal advisor to the Justice Department until recently. The original letter was written by Bruce Ackerman and Yochai Benkler, and the list of signatories is pretty impressive.
When you have so many experts in constitutional law speaking up for the way President Obama is treating Manning, can Obama really ignore them completely?
