Kucinich Wants to See Gay Wikileaks Source

Congressman Dennis Kucinich has demanded a visit with imprisoned U.S. Army private Bradley Manning, the gay soldier accused of providing documents to Wikileaks.

According to The Raw Story, the lawmaker from Ohio shared his concerns about the Manning's condition in a letter to Defense secretary Robert Gates. The Army intelligence analyst has been held in solitary confinement at a prison in Quantico, Va. for the past six months.

"As you know, I am concerned about reports of his treatment while in custody that describe alarming abuses of his constitutional rights and his physical health," wrote Kucinich, reported The Raw Story.

Congressman Kucinich earlier this week demanded that the Army reveal the state of Manning's mental health. A report in The Washington Post said that in spite of mental health screenings that indicated Manning should stay at home, he was deployed to Iraq, where his mental health continued to deteriorate.
