Bradley Manning is a man. He’s also a traitor to his country. Turning him into a media darling isn’t going to change that, and it’s only reminding everybody why the people who are doing so keep losing elections.
Lauren Effron and Nadine Shubailat, ABC News:
ChelseaBradley Manning has been called a hero by some, a traitor by others, but when asked how shehe sees herselfhimself, shehe said, “I’m just me…”
In referring to the military documents
shehe was reviewing and what compelled herhim to risk herhis career and break the law by leaking them, Manning said, “We’re getting all this information from all these different sources and it’s just death, destruction, mayhem.”
“We’re filtering it all through facts, statistics, reports, dates, times, locations, and eventually, you just stop,”
shehe continued. “I stopped seeing just statistics and information, and I started seeing people.”

Wow, they’re really trying to make a
heroine hero out of this gal guy. Sorry, ABC, but Bradley Manning isn’t Wonder Woman. He doesn’t qualify on either count.
Nor is he a victim. His narcissism and self-pity are nauseating.
I’m not sure if the taxpayers are still funding Manning’s “transition.” But all the softball TV interviews in the world won’t make him any less of a disgrace to his uniform and his country.
He can call himself anything he wants. I will never comply. #Science
