I’ll second that, though I think he should be put up against a wall and shot. He’s in the same category as the Rosenbergs and has the same right to keep breathing as they.
I'll have to disagree there, the firing squad has a tradition of being a more honorable death for a soldier than the gallows. I consider Manning to be a traitor who was never much of a soldier to begin with, and a first class idiot to boot.
He gave classified info to those with an agenda in a fit of pique because he wanted to serve openly as a homosexual. The brainless tool only had to wait about six months and he would have gotten his wish, without the need for betraying the trust mistakenly put in him. He deserves NOTHING honorable at all, least of all, an honorable end...
I’m not a big fan of the death penalty, but sometimes someone just flat out deserves it.
