In one of his last-minute, rushed acts, President Obama commuted the sentence of traitor, criminal and general nutcase, Bradley Manning.
And no, I won’t give this freak the courtesy of calling him “Chelsea” – he’s a dude and makes and an even uglier woman.
My personal disdain for Manning came after researching a story about his acts a few years ago.
Nothing has changed aside from the tempo of his shrills from behind federal bars in Quantico, Virginia
And Barack Obama fell for it.
Just to recap, Bradley Manning was an Army intelligence analyst as an enlisted soldier.
He was openly gay but also clearly mentally unstable. Before his deployment to Iraq in 2009, his commanders questioned his mental state and ability to deploy, but did so anyway due to a shortage of manpower.
As troops were deployed and fighting the enemy, Manning released three-quarters of a million documents containing sensitive and secret information to the world via WikiLeaks.
Why did he do this? Likely because he had a crush on Julian Assange and believed “she could be herself” in his chats online with someone assumed to be Assange.
For a comparison, Edward Snowden leaked evidence of the government committing crimes and spying on its own people. Snowden attempted to follow whistleblower procedures but was ignored.
Manning, betrayed the nation as a “brief respite from isolation and anxiety.”
He literally had no reason to release those documents other than that it gave him personal pleasure.
But to show the true, demented personality of Manning, my mind always goes back to an incident he initiated as an Army solider.
Before his arrest, Manning assaulted a woman, Specialist Showman.
The incident was witness by an Army Captain who walked in to see Manning pinned to the ground by Showman, who had been attacked and hit by Manning.
For whatever reason, Manning decided it was cool to hit a woman (soldier or not) and then, his puny butt was pinned to the ground by the girl he attacked.
Manning’s defense attorneys used that incident to blame the Army, saying that if the military had discharged him at that time of “emotional instability” the treason would not have occurred.
Now that it’s more than established that Manning is a dangerous nut that belongs behind bars, the question remains, why would Obama pardon the man?
Who knows, maybe Obama has a crush on little Chelsea and her blonde locks.
We’ll never know, but hopefully a President Trump or Attorney General Sessions can find a way to keep Manning behind bars.
