Here is coverage of yesterday’s hearing, including testimony from the Marine Corps’ Chief of Corrections that Manning was improperly held on suicide prevention status for a few days. And, here, is the Quantico Brig commander’s response today:
Averhart acknowledged that military regulations required him to remove Manning from highly restrictive suicide watch upon a psychiatrist’s recommendation. He says he didn’t do so immediately, on two occasions, because of Manning’s history of anxiety, depression and suicidal gestures.
I am sure there will be more later.
