Skip to comments.APNewsBreak: Manning to begin gender treatment
Posted on 07/17/2014 2:52:09 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The Bureau of Prisons has rejected the Armys request to accept the transfer of national security leaker Pvt. Chelsea Manning from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to a civilian facility where she could get better treatment for her gender-identify condition. The military will instead begin the initial treatment for her.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has approved the Armys recommendation to keep Manning in military custody and start a rudimentary level of gender treatment, a defense official said Thursday. The initial gender treatments could include allowing Manning to wear some female undergarments and also possibly provide some hormone treatments. [ ]
Manning has been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, the sense of being a woman in a man's body. Civilian prisons can provide treatment, and the Defense Department has argued repeatedly that it doesnt have the medical expertise needed. As a result, the Army tried to work out a plan to transfer Manning to a federal prison.

Your tax dollars at work!
She? I thought there was a “Y” chromosome involved here!
The military will instead begin the initial treatment for her.
How about a hot lead injection?
The group “Veterans for Peace” marched in our Independence Day Parade with a bigg banner “Free Chelsea Manning” on it. It got no cheers. It was telling, because the two groups that were before and after them got a lot of claps and cheers. Someone asked who “Chelsea Manning” was. I explained that it used to be “Bradley Manning” and he was the one who leaked the docs to Wikileaks. The guy’s response to me was less than printable (not directed at me, but toward the group).
Un-freakin-real. He SHOULD BE DEAD, executed, not eating up tax dollars! I cannot believe how blatant treason is treated today, I just can’t. From this freak to the freak in the oval office, “Oh it’s OK, it’s only treason in time of war!” Yeah, here’s all the US classified info, yeah let the terrorists go free, open the borders so then can get in”
So when he/she/it gets to a women’s federal pen Manning can come out as lesbian.
TREATMENTS??? We no longer need The Onion. We can just read the daily news out of DC.
this is not front page news - who gives a fig??????
Jeez - my very first thought was “what the hell is going on with the Denver Broncos....”
then I remembered that freak in the Army prison....
I suggest a Ka-Bar.
The Bronco QB already has a girl's name, so it must be him.
The AP thinks it is. And of course their opinion trumps all. I did not tag it “front page” either, FTR.
Putting “Chelsea” in with the general population would make this problem go away in a jiffy.
Brings new meaning to the term, “SNIP”
Why is the military trying to accommodate this misdirected soul? There was a time when the people in charge would just tell him to grow up and face the consequences of his actions instead of playing goofy. Not today!
Who the hell cares. This crap is news?
So our government has money to pay for his sexual preferences but not those in the VA?
