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



    I just took a second look at the BBC piece. Actually,Bradley Manning said "I am Chelsea Manning."

    So it sounds like Manning thinks it's a done deal.

    Yeah.....well when he can legally produce ID's and Birth certificate that says.....he is now Chelsea Manning. Then it will be legal by law. Until then his talk is still him doing the talk.

    In this, Manning is wrong. As far as the Army is concerned he will remain Bradley Manning for the duration of his sentence. His cell mates, on the other hand, may be perfectly happy to treat him as Chelsea.

    So you think that there is a special someone waiting for Manning at Leavenworth?

    Looks like this story has legs.

    Kinda looks like everyone involved in this kerfuffle, including Manning's future cellmate got (Or will get) at least part of what they wanted.

    A classic win-win out come.

    Correct. Who says government can't do anything right?

    No, it wouldn't have. But it still doesn't change that what Manning released was ultimately small potatoes.

    Snowden knows how our intelligence capturing operations work. That is way more dangerous.

    Well, goes to show you how much America has changed. Snowden I think did the right thing in letting the American public know just how much they're being spied on, and I can understand why he fled, but at the same time, Russia? Not cool man. Don't go running there.
