Just Ignore Him, He'll Go Away

The United Nations' torture investigator on Tuesday accused the United States of violating U.N. rules by refusing him unfettered access to the Army private accused of passing classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Juan Mendez, the U.N.'s special rapporteur for torture, said he can't do his job unless he has unmonitored access to detainees.

Like we care if he does his job. No, wait. His job is to investigate countries where evil men rule. And they better let him.

Mendez said the U.S. government assured him Manning is better treated now than he was in Quantico.

And, buddy, that’s all you need.

As for the Obama administration's strange refusal to allow a private U.N. interview with Manning -- something even Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was allowed by the Bush Pentagon in 2006 with the ICRC -- hasn't the Government taught us that you have nothing to hide if you've done nothing wrong?

....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
