"The Pentagon pushed back Friday against news reports that accuse the US military of mistreating [Bradley Manning], calling the allegations 'blatantly false.' ... The Pentagon denies that Manning is being held in solitary confinement. ... '[J]ust being in a cell by yourself doesn’t constitute solitary confinement,' says Col. Dave Lapan. 'He is surrounded by other people' in adjacent cells .... Manning can watch television for one hour per day and read newspapers, military officials say." (12/17/10)
