|Pfc. Manning in drag|
Pfc. Bradley Manning was convicted in 2013 of illegally disclosing classified information to WikiLeaks and sentenced to a mere 35 years in prison instead of being shot as a traitor to the United States.
But Bradley Manning wanted to be Chelsea Manning and based on that, former President Obama granted him clemency and cut his sentence short--about 29 years short.
Manning, a transgender soldier, will remain on active duty; and if all goes as expected, he will have his male genitals removed at taxpayer expense whereupon he can think of himself as a woman in spite of biological science.
An actual woman and spokesperson Lt. Col. Jennifer Johnson, said Manning will be on "excess leave" while his court-martial conviction is under appellate review. In that status, he'll not be paid but will be legally entitled to have his penis and testicles removed to help give him the look of a woman.
And we will pay for the surgery because there is nothing more important for the mentally ill than to go along with their delusions and pretend that he will magically become a woman for lacking his junk.
"In an active-duty status, although in an unpaid status, Manning is eligible for direct care at medical treatment facilities, commissary privileges, morale welfare and recreation privileges, and exchange privileges," Johnson wrote in a statement.
Manning was an intelligence analyst in Iraq and a native of Crescent, Oklahoma.
He was convicted in a military court martial of 20 counts, including six Espionage Act violations, theft and computer fraud. The dude was acquitted of the most egregious charge of aiding the enemy, in spite of the fact that he did.
The scumbag Manning acknowledge leading the materials, saying he wanted to expose what he considered to be the U.S. military's disregard of the effects of war on civilians. The traitor also said he didn't think the classified information would harm the U.S., but he was full of it and the information he released endangered information sources.
It's disgusting that because Manning falls into a "special category" (aka transgender) he was given clemency by Obama. The classified material that went public was in the hundreds of thousands of documents. Traitors have been shot for a lot less.
