Top UN offcial accuses US of torturing Chelsea Manning

A top UN offcial has accused the US of using torture against Chelsea Manning, the ex-army intelligence analyst jailed in the US over her refusal to testify against WikiLeaks. Nils Melzer, the UN special rapporteur on torture, said that detaining Manning and fining her with the aim of coercing her to testify constitutes a kind of torture that runs afoul of US international human rights obligations.

No, torture is torture. Being caught in a legal bureaucratic web is not torture. Inconvenient and annoying to be sure, but not torture.

Sick of this crap Brad manning now Chelsea is some kind of whistle-blower hero... Bs... Ever think it was done to fund brads transition... Hundreds of thousands of documents leaked to assange who works for highest bidders disclosing info that provided intel to enemy while Brad was in uniform in afganistan..... Damn lucky Obama commuted their sentence... For humane reasons.... Damn near treason what was done...... Chelsea only fools the no whistle blower n owes congress answers about assange...totally her choice to be in contempt of court...she knew the consequences when she chose to be in contempt... How damn dare Un suggest is a political prisoner kinda thing thus torture... Never heard Un stand up for Susan McDougal who spent years in jail in contempt... Chelsea u don't get special status privledges when u defy the courts... Frankly u owe usa twenty seven years in jail for being convicted for ur crimes against USA... Damn.. U got arrogance n nerve... U think u r slick n u r not... Hope selling out USA was worth monies u got from assange to transition .

The UN demonstrates it's irrelevance and it's inability to distinguish state-sponsored torture from consequences of self-caused bad decisions.
