By now we all know that PFC Manning may or may not have something to do with the latest leak of classified documents to WIKILEAKS. But what we know little about is PFC Manning himself/herself. A few questions to start this thread off
1. Employment history before joining Army? 2. Political Affiliations? Left wing suspected? 3. Is there a connection between this leak and the LGBT agenda? Is PFC Manning himself/herself transgendered? if so is it relevent to this matter
Transexual? impossible. How would the person get in the military.
Did I read that he is 22 (or was it 24) years old?
how did he get his job?
I want to know who his SUPERVISOR is............................
Check out the FB page on this article:

Whatever. He should be tried for treason and if found guilty, shot.
Since instituting DADT, recruiters are barred from asking or investigating a prospective recruits sexual orientation. It used to be that while at the MEPS station, you would actually have to swear under penalty of perjury that you weren't a homosexual, not anymore.
His security clearance however is much more disturbing. Up until recently, if a security clearance investigation had revealed homosexuality or homosexual conduct in a subject, that information would not only be used to reject the clearance, but it would probably be used to separate the service member from service. That has changed. Now, the DOD is not allowed to use that information - if uncovered - in separation proceedings against the service member. It's one of the directives that was quietly changed after Obama took office.
I think - although I could be wrong because I have been retired for 12 months - that the homosexual conduct can still be used to reject the security clearance. Again, I'm not positive.
Did the source mysteriously end with Bush's Presidency? Or, is this a clearly political effort designed to blame Bush and leave Obama unscathed? And, why hasn't the mainstream media noticed this time aspect that is right in front of their pinched faces?
The owner of Wikileaks, however, telegraphed HIS agenda the other day with the comment that there is so much stuff that it's going to take a long time to go through it, but he's SURE there are going to be some war crimes mentioned. THAT'S what the left is so excited about. They have been salivating at the opportunity to 'get' George W. Bush and Dick Cheney, and they think this may be it. It's interesting, also, don't you think, that all of this material only seems to cover the Afghanistan War up to the point where Obama was sworn in, but covers nothing after that?
My question is: is it normal to give this level of access to somebody 5 minutes out of boot camp?
Your right homosexual conduct will get you discharged rightfully so. The question I have is how can a transexual be in the military....I find that completely impossible. There are a ton of homosexuals in the military, but transexuals????? IMPOSSIBLE!!! :)
Hah! GMTA! I was posting much the same thing while you were posting your comments!
Nah, just horribly confused.
“Whatever. He should be tried for treason and if found guilty, shot.”
Are you talking this PFC or that commander in chief?
There was a bit about him in the WSJ this morning. He is from a small town in the Midwest and was always somewhat of an outsider. His parents are divorced and he lived with his mother. The guy is not “transgendered” - he is, however, very short and small and was apparently very self-conscious about this. He held a few nothing jobs (pizza guy, etc.) and then went into the army. He was in Iraq, during which time he got demoted for some unspecified offense and seems to have a grudge against the Army for this.
OMG! He looks like the chick convected in the prison scandel in Iraq
and who is his supervisor?
