15 disciplined over failures to report Bradley Manning’s difficulties.

Talk about closing the barn door after the horse has bolted. The Army knew they had a problem, but they have taken it out on Manning rather than deal with the problem.

Manning’s emotional and disciplinary problems have been reported before. Last year, Manning’s attorney revealed that the Army was so concerned about his client’s mental health prior to the alleged leaks that supervisors removed the bolt from his military weapon, disabling it.
