Skip to comments.Military Homosexual Scandal Tied to WikiLeaks Treason
Posted on 08/03/2010 12:20:12 PM PDT by DesertRenegade
In the scandal involving the theft and release of classified military information that could cost the lives of U.S. military personnel, the British Telegraph newspaper is reporting that the American soldier at the center of the scandal was "openly homosexual" and apparently held a grudge against the U.S. because of the military's anti-gay policy.
In another bizarre twist, reliable reports suggest that Private First Class Bradley Manning, the U.S. Army Intelligence analyst accused of leaking the classified information to the WikiLeaks.org website, was not only a homosexual but was considering a sex change. Manning was arrested at the end of May and is being detained by U.S. authorities.
he Telegraph features photographs of Manning, who could face more than 50 years in prison for treasonous conduct, holding up a sign with rainbow colors demanding "equality on the battlefield" and participating in a gay pride parade.
It is apparent that Manning, based on published reports, was a public homosexual activist for at least over a year. During this time he apparently came up with the idea of downloading and releasing the classified information to WikiLeaks as a way to get back at the United States military over its policy regarding homosexuality.
Telegraph writers Heidi Blake, John Bingham and Gordon Rayner write that Manning had "appeared to sink into depression after a relationship break-up" and became increasingly bitter with his treatment by the Army.
It may be the case that Manning was anxious about the failure of Congress to pass the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" anti-gay military policy.
President Obama had promised during the 2008 campaign to repeal the policy and in office has championed the "rights" of homosexual and "transgendered" people to high-level federal positions.

So homosexuality isn’t a threat to security? Right.
...geeze...this is all we need....a fifth column of queers under mining the Army.
This traitor will, no doubt, be offered a job in this Regime or as a staffer in this Congress. He’ll fit right in, IMO.
This is really shocking. Saw a picture of him. It’s hard to imagine he was considering a sex change.
Heh, expect any trial to focus on the military disallowing gays rather than on the act of treason.
Gee, I wonder why I haven’t seen anything about this on ABCNNBCBS?................
He'll have plent of time to play lady of the house with his new roommates.
I don’t know about national security, but it’s certainly a threat to the healthy man’s rectum, and T-Cell count.
Hope they get this guy but he’ll probably want to spend his time in prison and become some sort of cult hero like that Mumia guy did.
Too Much Information. Really. :p
And before you ask, no I don't have frequent urges to do violence to gays; I have frquent frequent urges to do violence to traitors.
I'd have been glad to pull the switch on Julius and Ethel too. And I get along just fine with Jewish folks, thanks very much.
This would explain many of the earlier comments by Lamo and others.
Well....if you Google it, this revelation has been floating around and apparently is common knowledge in Great Britian. Along with lots of info regarding his FaceBook rants and the fact that he was openly gay and engaged in Gay Pride activities........not a peep out of our MSM!
Obama is not trying to “mandate open homosexuality.”
Yes, he is. And since he couldn’t get repeal of DADT immediately, he had Gates change policy to make it almost impossible to enforce.
BTW, nice try at a moral equivalency argument. Sodomites and heterosexuals are not morally or psychologically equivalent. Are you working for Cass Sunstein?
Does anyone remember the story about the Cambridge Spies in the UK? Several were homosexuals.
Here is some information on one of the ringleaders, Anthony Blunt.
His parents must be really proud and getting more so by the moment.
It will be interesting to see how much pressure the politically correct military brass puts on the judicial system to go easy on a gay, leftist domestic enemy.
