State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley resigned Sunday after criticizing the military for its treatment of the U.S. Army private accused of leaking cables to the website WikiLeaks.

During a speech Thursday at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Mr. Crowley called Pfc. Bradley Manning's detention conditions "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid."

Pleasantly surprised that the C-in-C threw Crowley under the bus instead of the Marines at Quantico Brig.

Lameduck SECDEF's get no respect, especially Former Regime Loyalists held over from the previous administration.

Why did this wait until Sunday afternoon when most people were paying attention to Japanese reactors?

What did SECSTATE know, and when did she know it?
