A Mess of A Child

A Mess of A Child

Abby Zimet

Sunday marks the year-long detention of Bradley Manning, a mentally fragile, much-harassed "mess of a child" who never should have been sent to Iraq, according to a new investigative film by the UK's Guardian. Researchers also found there was no computer or intelligence security at Manning's station in Iraq, where up to 300 soldiers had access to the computer room and passwords were stuck on screens with sticky notes.

"They never should have trapped him in and recycled him in [to Iraq]. Never. Not that mess of a child I saw with my own two eyes. No one has mentioned the army's failure here."
