P J Crowley has stepped down from his position as chief spokesman of the US State Department after condemning the Pentagon’s treatment of Private Bradley Manning. The US soldier is accused of providing documents to Wikileaks.
He is currently detained in solitary confinement in a maximum security US military prison. Crowley described the Pentagon’s handling of Manning as “ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid”.
