It started when U.S. State Department spokesperson PJ Crowley stirred up controversy over alleged WikiLeaks informant Private First Class Bradley Manning.
REPORTER: “PJ Crowley was at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was addressing a seminar there. I gather -- this was some time last week -- he was taking some Q and A and he was asked about Private First Class Bradley Manning. ... He thinks that the treatment of Bradley Manning is quote- ‘ridiculous,’ ‘counter-productive,’ and ‘stupid.’”
Crowley resigned Sunday - but he reignited a debate over Private Manning’s treatment at Quantico Marine Base.
Fox News provides a refresher on that controversy.
“Manning is being held in solitary confinement at a Marine brig in Virginia and is reportedly stripped naked every night and forced to wear a suicide-proof smock to bed.”
Crowley’s remarks are a stark departure from the Pentagon’s stance, and on Friday President Barack Obama addressed the issue at a press conference:
PRES. BARACK OBAMA: “With respect to Private Manning, I have actually asked the Pentagon whether or not the procedures that have been taken in terms of his confinement are appropriate and are meeting our basic standards. They assure me that they are.” (CBS)
But while Crowley may be at odds with the White House, analysts point out he has suddenly found himself the darling of leftist bloggers -- like liberal blog firedoglake founder Jane Hamsher...
“Barack Obama made his administration virtually indistinguishable from that of George Bush when he fired PJ Crowley for speaking the truth... With his firing of Crowley, Obama makes a mockery of his own claim to be a constitutional scholar who supports transparency in government.”
And for the Huffington Post -- contributor Richard Grenell says Crowley’s admission has only highlighted the administration’s shaky stance on the civil liberties.
“The president has time after time used contradictory statements to at once please his Democratic base and the far-left progressives that are growing increasingly disenchanted with his rhetoric.”
Meanwhile, CNN’s Senior State Department Producer suggests -- Crowley’s comments were more calculated than they might appear.
ELISE LABOTT : “PJ Crowley -- there’s been some talk about the fact that he would leave for some time. He never really gelled with the -- Secretary Clinton’s team. He wasn’t really seen as an insider. (FLASH) Some people seem to think that he kind of made these comments knowing that his days were numbered, and that his way he could kind of set himself up for a post-State Department career.”
National Defense Council spokesperson Mike Hammer is widely expected to be PJ Crowley’s successor.
