    Truthfully I don't even know why they put up all that crap on him changing his sex, and name. The real fact of the matter is.....he hasn't legally changed his name. So it's a non-story from the get go. At least on that part. Be different if he would have legally changed his name. Or if his attorney had filed to so.

    Which his attorney has not done so.....in all this time. <<<<< Means a way to go after this attorney on this.

    Looks like this will be his next issue and who he will play patsy for.....do you think if he was ever released from prison. That he would last more than a month without someone coming along and taking him out?

    Bradley Manning, the Army private who was sentenced to 35 years in prison for disclosing highly damaging national intelligence, now wants to live the rest of his life as a woman. In order to do so, however, he wants expensive surgery and hormone treatments, none of which the government is likely to provide him at Ft. Leavenworth, where he will serve his prison term.

    Manning, who now wishes to be called Chelsea, is clearly a troubled young man -- and yes, no matter how feminine he "feels," he is a man. Surgery and drugs may transform his physical appearance, but no amount of surgery or hormones changes an individual born with a Y chromosome into a female.

    Manning will have to wait for the transformation he seeks, but not as long as his sentence suggests. He'll be up for parole in about 8 years.

    Some states allow transgendered individuals to officially change their gender identification on government IDs, but that hardly solves the problem. In some arenas, such as employment, deciding to live as a member of the opposite sex wouldn't seem to make a huge difference. Because employers already are forbidden from discriminating on the basis of sex, it probably shouldn't matter if accountant or salesperson Robert shows up to work one day as Roberta.

    But what about employment in which gender is pertinent to the job? Should a male TSA agent one day be able to pat down female travelers because he changed his sexual identity? Should parents of elementary school children have to explain to their kids why Mr. Jones is now Ms. Jones? Sex may be largely irrelevant to most jobs, but not in every case.....snip~

    GO learn something - Manning was upholding the Constitution.

    You ever bother to think the government IS a domestic enemy??? - It's our government that are violating the Constitution every day.
    Doesn't it concern you that Manning didn't know what he was releasing?

    The war logs and video showed that the American People were being lied to about the course of the wars. The release of actual names was bad though. That should have been redacted before Manning or anyone else released it.

    Manning did some damage, but I feel overall, it's exaggerated. He did violate this oath though.

    Snowden I feel is going to do more damage. Way more damage.
    But again, if you see it as a positive, Mannng didn't know what he was releasing. It could just have easily been information that lead directly to American deaths. Would that have been OK?

    It seems he just was a whistleblower, I'm just not understanding what more there is to it.

    I don't know the details, maybe he released it the wrong way that was criminal... In which case he deserves to go to jail, but I thought that blowing the whistle on wrong doing was like a duty, not something to be vilified?

    I think better questions to consider would be; how come there are so many whistleblowers lately? And how come the government is acting to crack down on those whistleblowers??

    But, maybe I've just missed the facts of the case that show this man guilty...
    Wouldn't the term whistleblower imply intent?

    Mornin SN. Actually.....it can be. Once he legally changes his birth certificate. Until then.....he is Bradley Manning.

    Myself.....I just go with Traitor Manning. This way there is no confusion as to what he or she is.
