Human Rights And The Obama Administration

In this little exchange with the AP reporter, the State Department spokesman cannot handle defending the treatment of Bradley Manning. With good reason:

Why are the UN Rapporteur and the International Red Cross denied access to the Wikileaks leaker? Why does the US act like, say, China when it comes to questions like this, while continuing to insist that we are a leader in the question of human rights? By the way, this is what journalism looks like. It doesn't take flim-flam for an answer (keep watching past the four minute mark when it gets feisty).
