Barack Obama has opened up the prison doors and let all the worst of the worst felons run free in the months leading up to his final days. However, it turns out that he was saving one more for last which appears to be an intentional “screw you” to citizens of this country and his final blow to America as he leaves the white house — here’s why.
Remember Chelsea Manning? She/he is responsible for leaking 700,000 sensitive and top secret military and government documents to Wikileaks and was possibly a scapegoat for Edward Snowden.
The transgender Army intelligence analyst is on Obama’s short list for pardons or shortening sentences before he hits the road.
Daily Mail reports – With Donald Trump’s inauguration fast approaching, President Barack Obama has put convicted military document leaker Chelsea Manning on his short list for a possible commutation of sentence, according to a new report.
Manning, a transgender former Army intelligence analyst known before her transition as Bradley Manning, is serving a 35-year sentence for handing 700,000 sensitive military and diplomatic documents, among them classified files, to WikiLeaks.
Manning has already made two suicide attempts while incarcerated at the maximum-security US Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth and went on a hunger strike last year in an attempt to get officials to allow her to undergo gender reassignment surgery.
Edward Snowden, who resides in Russia to avoid criminal charges in America, has petitioned for Manning’s release to save his/her life.
This comes with a very mixed opinion. On one hand, I think anyone leaking American secrets and files that could affect or endanger our military in anyway should be tried for treason. You can’t serve your military, then betray your military.
On the contrary, if the leaked information goes to the greater good of the United States citizenry, then is the military betrayal and leaked documents justified because, in theory, it has served the American people?
We have to remember that there’s some things the government does for national security and that regular citizens are on a need to know basis. We want to know everything happening, but we aren’t on that pay-grade.
There’s just certain things that normal every day citizens have no business knowing.
I don’t believe we should allow anyone in prison to have a free sex change operation. There’s plenty of liberals and democrats begging to have their gender changed and they can’t afford it. Even though they’re mentally inept, the gender reassignment isn’t something we should give away for free.
You gotta work for it.
This is Chelsea Manning as a guy.
