Is US Military Out of Civilian Control?

Rep. Kucinich, a sitting Member of Congress with a seat on the Oversight Committee together with UN Special Rappateur on Torture along with Amnesty International are still being denied an opportunity to visit Bradley Manning in the US military prison. For Amnesty International it must feel like a dejavu from the Soviet era. Why is US president not protesting treatment of the prisoner in US jail? He may be guilty of leaking secrets but that does not mean he should be tortured.

But the bigger issue for American people should be that the military seems to be out of civilian and constitutional controls.
