P.J. Crowley Headed to Penn State Law School

P.J. Crowley has found a new job.

The former State Department spokesman is headed to Penn State University's Dickinson School of Law, where he accepted a one-year appointment to the Omar Bradley Chair of Strategic Leadership, according to an Associated Press report.


The position is a joint post with Dickinson College and the U.S. Army War College, located in Carlisle, Pa. His appointment at the law school will begin on August 1.

Crowley resigned from the State Department last month after criticizing the treatment of Pfc. Bradley Manning, who has been charged by the Army with handing government documents over to WikiLeaks.

According to media reports, Manning was kept in solitary confinement and was forced to sleep naked. Crowley called the treatment of Manning "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid."


After Crowley's comments, reporters asked President Obama about Manning's treament. Obama said the Pentagon assured him that the conditions of Manning's confinement were appropriate.

Manning has since been moved from a detention center in Quantico, Va., to Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. Defense Department officials said that Manning will be given recreation time and would be able to interact with other inmates.
