MANNING, SEEKING GENDER TREATMENT, OK'D FOR MOVE
WASHINGTON (AP) In an unprecedented move, the Pentagon is trying to transfer convicted national security leaker Pvt. Chelsea Manning to a civilian prison so she can get treatment for her gender disorder, defense officials said. Manning, formerly named Bradley, was convicted of sending classified documents to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks. The soldier has asked for hormone therapy and to be able to live as a woman. The request was the first ever made by a transgender military inmate and set up a dilemma for the Defense Department: How to treat a soldier for a diagnosed disorder without violating long-standing military policy. Transgender people are not allowed to serve in the U.S. military and the Defense Department does not provide such treatment, but Manning can't be discharged from the service while serving her 35-year prison sentence.

Hagel sounds like he’s got a thing for boys dressed up like girls.
What this all says...is that when the Army recruited Manning...he was a bit of a nut. For the whole enlistment, he was a nut. And throughout the court episode and waiting for the whole thing to end....he was a nut. Now? He’ll serve out his time in a federal prison...as a nut. For Manning, I would have considered this. At least in a military prison...you would have survived with no violent assaults or terrible problems. In a federal prison? You will be target number one for the entire time. Violent assault will be a potential problem every single day. You’d have to be crazy to volunteer and desire this type of situation. I don’t expect him to survive the sentence...if transferred out of the military prison. But maybe that’s the whole gimmick here....give him the justice he desires.
At the very least, assign him a 300 lb. cell mate who will be happy to recognize his newly chosen gender and be done with it.
Scared me to death! With all that’s going on now in the NFL, I thought the headline was about Peyton.
He has more rings than his brother and dad.
I realize the story came from AP, but why is breitbart.com describing Bradley Manning as “she”???
“for her gender disorder”
So much to say but don’t feel like getting banned.
I'll say it. He is a defective product. Destroy it and return to the manufacturer.
Are there no more firing squads?
"Pay attention to your enemies, for they are the
first to discover your mistakes."
Put him in general population for a few days.Save this country’s tax *payers* (a dying breed for sure) millions of dollars.And save the Army the bother of an unneeded court martial.
Let’s just say his dance card will be full.
Sounds to me like the person responsible for this particular statement has a biology comprehension disorder.
Is that what they call it these days..."dancing"? ;-)
From “Ruthless People”
Barbara: [whistles] Nice butt. That’s what they’ll say.
Ken Kessler: I beg your pardon?
Barbara: Nice butt. That’s what they’ll say on your first day, in the men’s club.
Ken Kessler: The men’s club?
Barbara: Mmm. The San Quentin Country Club. With a cute little rear end like that, you’ll be the belle of the ball. Your dance card’ll be filled every day. You’ll be so popular, making all kinds of new, close friends. Big, ugly, hairy friends! Not that you’ll ever see what they look like, ‘cause you’ll be facing the other way.
Ken Kessler: You’re very good at this. You should write children’s books.
Hmm... that’s interesting. I think you’re right, a way to get around the libs defense of him is to give him what he wants. Let him dress like a girl then throw him in a cell with Bubba the rapist/serial killer.
LOL! Exactly. Putin must do that everyday when he reads the US news.
The Army almost couldn’t bring itself to tell Maj. Hassan to shave his bear while he was a prisoner for shooting his fellow soldiers at Ft. Hood — meanwhile, Bradley Manning asks for therapy to change his gender? And gets it?
The entire country is off it’s collective nut!
Let me just say that I'm not opposed to the entirety of this plan - just the “paying for it” part.
