Write to him here:

Bradley Manning 89289

830 Sabalu Road
Fort Leavenworth, KS 66027

David House, Manning’s friend had his computer seized at Chicago’s O’Hare last January, with no probable cause and they still have not returned it to him.  He filed a lawsuit against the Federal Government on May 13, 2011, and the Government has 60 days to respond.

Feds forbid scientists probing Gulf dolphin deaths from speaking to media

Well, more dead dolphins continue to be found, bringing the total this year up to 114 — 100 more than the average number of dead dolphins that washed ashore during the first three months of any year between 2002 and 2007. So, naturally, there are quite a few people interested in what might cause such dramatic increases in marine mammal mortality. But Mississippi’s WLOX reported recently that government testing on the animals has been slow to commence, and Reuters reported over the weekend that a gag order has been put into place forbidding wildlife biologists at the National Marine Fisheries Service to talk to the media about their findings.
