- Private First Class Bradley Manning faces twenty-two “new” charges, including “aiding the enemy” and probably “complaining too much about being tortured, what a weenie.” (Army people refused to identify the “enemy” Manning is allegedly aiding. Surprise!) Brad Manning is still in solitary confinement at the Quantico Marine Fun Palace, so we’re sure that these new Aiding Lord Voldemort charges are music to his ears — if his American interrogators haven’t cut his ears off yet, which we suspect is probably Standard Operating Procedure at most military rape prisons these days. “So it goes.” [NYT/CNN]

- A freedom-hating Pakistani judge ordered that the trial of Raymond Davis should proceed, even though Davis is “a respectable diplomat” or whatever Barack Obama and The New York Times called him. Davis has yet to be formally charged, and the “immunity” issue is still being considered by the Lahore High Court. [AP]
