The detained US soldier convicted of leaking a trove of secret documents to WikiLeaks made a rare foray into public life Saturday to warn Americans they were being lied to about Iraq once more.
Chelsea Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence on espionage charges and other offenses for passing along 700,000 secret documents, including diplomatic cables and military intelligence files, to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks in the largest-scale leak in US history.
"I understand that my actions violated the law. However, the concerns that motivated me have not been resolved," the soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning wrote in a New York Times editorial.
"As Iraq erupts in civil war and America again contemplates intervention, that unfinished business should give new urgency to the question of how the United States military controlled the media coverage of its long involvement there and in Afghanistan."
President Barack Obama said this week he was "looking at all the options" to halt the offensive that has brought militants within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of Baghdad's city limits, but ruled out any return of US combat troops....

He’s just on his period.
And yet Youtube video maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is kept incommunicado in a Federal prison for 11 months on a probation violation. WTH?
[cue David Lee Roth]
Good gravy, I wish this guy would just shut and go away.
Someone undergoing a sex change is having his and her writings published by the New York Times. Just wow.
Wasn’t he court martialed, convicted and reduced to Private, E-1? What country is this, again?
loppedoff is just angry about being surrounded by all those ‘nasty’ men...
The boy has “issues”. He thinks he’s a woman and he wants us to believe him? Get outta town. He ain’t right in the head.
That what I want to know also. Why is a prisoner in a military prison being allowed to communicate with, and write articles, for a newspaper?? And why is the MSM giving this wide publicity????
And speaking of this person, why is it that this trans-whatever traitor, by its actions, is NOT a bad reflection on the “LBGT” peoples??????
This guy should face a firing squad!!! Chelsey is a traitor!!!
Why is Bradley still breathing? What happened to “summary execution”?
Unless Manning spells out what were the lies, all he is giving is empty rhetoric. G’by Manning. Your 15 minutes is up.
Did you know you’re about to pay for his sex-change operation, estrogen regime and the rest along with all the expenses of keeping him in prison?
This is natural selection in self destruct mode. What would Darwin say? He would say, "You stupid sex changers. Did millions of years of evolution turn you into a sex changer? How is it possible that one becomes a deserter from the battle of the fittest?"
Nakoula Brasseley (YouTube filmmaker blamed for Benghazi) has just been exposed as a MOSLEM AGENT working for the White House.
Walid Shoebat just blew the lid off that little episode.
Google Shoebat and the filmmaker’s name and you’ll find Shoebat’s article dated approx June 12, 2014.
Good point. I did not go to the source article, but my thought when I read the part quoted here is that little Bradley did not write this. This whole leaking incident has been a well planned progressive stunt from the very beginning.
I suspect the same can be said for the Snowden affair.
Looks to me like, the progressives want to tarnish the reputations of the entire military and the entire intelligence community so that when any of the loyal Americans who are in those institutions speak up they will not be trusted by those of us who are patriots.
Good freaking gravy, people, get your butts out of knee jerk mode and read what the little peckerwood revealed. Both Iraq adventures were an idiot replay of Viet Nam, doomed to the same ending from the start, and for what...? Weapons of mass destruction my backside. You ever read the skinny on the “Gulf of Tonkin Incident?” Just Google it, the energy required is a mouse click. We either get smarter or we crash and burn. (Walks away shaking head, muttering...)
Those are limited to domestic no knock warrants now.
