P.J. Crowley a spokesperson for Secretary of State Hilary Clinton resigned on Sunday after calling the treatment of WikiLeaks suspect.

Star Tribune reported that Crowley called the treatment of WikiLeaks suspect Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is being held at a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va, as "stupid."

"Given the impact of my remarks, for which I take full responsibility, I have submitted my resignation" to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to the department of the spokesman as reported by Star Tribune.

Hilary Clinton was then reported to have accepted the resignation with "regret."
