Could the WikiLeaks case expose the sad state of mental-health coverage
in the military? A mental-health specialist recommended the Army not to
deploy WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning to Iraq, but the Army ignored
the warning and sent him anyway. The recommendation came after Manning
enlisted and received a security clearance. "Something happened in his
personal life after he joined the Army," an official tells The
Washington Post. One source tells the Post Manning sought help after a
difficult personal relationship. He then showed many signs of mental
trouble: At Fort Drum, he screamed at a higher-ranking soldier; In Iraq,
Manning's lawyer says an officer dismantled Manning's weapon he was so
concerned about his stability; and he was demoted in Iraq for assaulting
another soldier.
