    So Chelsea (Bradley) manning is free.

    Thoughts?

    My opinion is this:
    If you are in Service to your country, especially if you are trusted with Intelligence documents, Betraying that trust is treason, even if you feel that you are exposing criminal behavior.

    Manning got off to light, Treason is treason.

    I agree with you 100%, He wore the uniform and took the oath. Part of following your consiense is accepting the consequenses. This makes my blood boil.

    Here's the Big question, Was Manning given Leniency because she used the Transgender card?

    I don't buy the Transgender story that Manning uses, I think it was a ploy for an easier life in Leavenworth.. which get's you out of the cells and into the Infirmary, and Group sessions more often.

    He's the Guy that put all of Hacking Team's Source Code, Documents, and Emails on-line using their own twitter account, if I remember about 400 Gigs of data

    Yeah, the hacking team, banks, police forces .... it's crazy. He also donates money to causes he believes in.

    Nobody has been able to track him down.
