Posted on 05/17/2014 7:55:21 AM PDT by mandaladon
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has formally approved the request of Pvt. Bradley Manning, convicted for leaking classified documents to Wikileaks, to be temporarily transferred out of military custody in order to undergo expensive hormone therapy and surgery to become a woman.
Manning, whose taxpayer-funded request to change his name from Bradley to Chelsea was approved last month by a Kansas court, has been able to obtain repeated diagnoses from military doctors that he suffers from gender dysphobia; a condition of someone discontented with the sex they were assigned with at birth. It was first listed as a medical condition in 2007 by the authoritative Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Two Pentagon officials quoted by WUSA-TV, the CBS News affiliate in Washington, D.C., claim the transfer orders were submitted because neither the Defense nor Veterans Department authorize such medical services, while the US Bureau of Prisons does. Pentagon Spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby denies the claim, saying no decision has been made to transfer Manning to a civilian facility.
As the medical needs of Manning, convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 35 years in prison for stealing 750,000 classified defense department documents in order to disseminate them to Wikileaks, were being assiduously attended to by Americas defense establishment, untold hundreds of American servicemen and women suffering from genuine life-threatening and acute medical conditions have allegedly been left to die on at least seven waiting lists managed by the US Veterans Administration.

We can’t stand for this. Seriously.
Priorities of this administration require treasonous homosexual pre-ops to get immediate attention. Those “other” vets, well they have served their purpose, besides, most of them fought on the wrong side (in the view of the Dims).
Manning should wait ,his Dr could be a Veterinarian
Of course, that description fits the entire soebarkah administration.
The little islamist could stop this in a second.
But he won’t.
Manning dumped all of America’s secrets just so he could become a little girl? Are you kidding me? The bass turd should have been taken out and shot!
Universal Suffrage will prove to be the end of us.
He is promoting it!
I am sick of the republicans too.
They want to cut pension benefits for Vets who have been in a war theater for over a decade.
I can’t get a damned aspirin from the VA.
Also checked The Onion.
Hopefully somebody will fess up and admit to spreading this farcical story. It's a clever prank and has had many of us fooled into thinking the government would actually pay for a convicted traitor to have a sex change - but I think it's gone on long enough. It's not funny anymore.
Congressional representatives should have to use VA services exclusively. They say they are serving the public, so let them share the same benefits we do.
Truly, this is a symptom of our societal disease, illustrated in living color.
And if anybody had any doubts about what a tool Hagel is.....
Cheaper just to hang / shoot the son-of-a-bitch.
0bama has ordered the VA to fastrack Manning's sex change BECAUSE he dumped all of America's secrets. 0bama is REWARDING Manning for harming America. Mission accomplished!
>> It’s a clever prank <<
Yeah, you gotta wonder about the authenticity of the story when the headline writer obviously doesn’t know that the VA has no responsibility for military prisoners.
The headline is intentionally misleading. The article does not indicate how or when Manning was ever under the authority of the VA.

Outrageous! Goes to show what damage is inflicted by PC and the single-issue activists who seem to run the country.
You have that right!
I was recently wondering how much it would take for Americans to rise up and take their country back. It seems that what this administration is doing should cause such a reaction, but I think that because it’s bit by bit, nothing happens, like the frog in the gradually heating water.
Sadly, so many of the American people can’t wait to pay for sex changes for anyone who “needs” one. It shows how “compassionate” the American people are.
Veterans Affairs and Death by Bureaucracy
Posted By Arnold Ahlert On May 20, 2014 @ 12:19 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage
There may finally be a scandal engulfing the Obama administration that even Democrats and their media collaborators cant obfuscate. What happened at the VA facility in Phoenix, AZ, where employees created two sets of waiting lists to make it seem patients were being treated in a timely mannerand as many as 40 veterans allegedly died while languishing on the secret listis an anomaly. Six more whistleblowers from around the nation have stepped forward, alleging the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities they worked at also cooked the books.
The despicable subterfuge, allegedly occurring in at least seven VA Medical Centers in Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas, North Carolina and Illinois is as simple as it was heartless. The official waiting list is the one that ostensibly met the VAs policy, implemented by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki in 2010. It set a 14-day time limit to provide care for a veteran making an initial application for an appointment. Yet by the agencys own admission, only 41 percent of new VA medical patients were seen within that period in 2013, down from 90 percent in 2012.
THE REST OF THE SCANDAL
Veterans Hospitals Death Panel Scandal Is a Preview of Life Under Obamacare.
The best example of how Obamacares death panels is going to work, is the scandal of the unknown number of veteran sentenced to death for being denied or delayed medical assistance by government bureaucracies of the V.A.
