Protesters break into song at Obama fundraiser (with video)

The headline:  Obama faces singing protest over WikiLeaks

The summary:  A group protesting the treatment of Bradley Manning, a United States soldier accused of passing classified documents to WikiLeaks, voiced their displeasure in song at a recent fundraiser benefiting Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.

The reaction:  Manning has been detained since July 2010 and the rumored conditions of his treatment in prison including long periods in solitary confinement and being forced to sleep naked have drawn the ire of protesters.

I understand the human rights concerns but you can’t really expect the Club Med treatment when you leak classified government material.
