Skip to comments.Manning says US public lied to about Iraq from the start

The detained US soldier convicted of leaking a trove of secret documents to WikiLeaks made a rare foray into public life Saturday to warn Americans they were being lied to about Iraq once more.
Chelsea Manning is serving a 35-year prison sentence on espionage charges and other offenses for passing along 700,000 secret documents, including diplomatic cables and military intelligence files, to anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks in the largest-scale leak in US history.
"I understand that my actions violated the law. However, the concerns that motivated me have not been resolved," the soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning wrote in a New York Times editorial.
"As Iraq erupts in civil war and America again contemplates intervention, that unfinished business should give new urgency to the question of how the United States military controlled the media coverage of its long involvement there and in Afghanistan."
President Barack Obama said this week he was "looking at all the options" to halt the offensive that has brought militants within 50 miles (80 kilometers) of Baghdad's city limits, but ruled out any return of US combat troops....

He’s just on his period.
And yet Youtube video maker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is kept incommunicado in a Federal prison for 11 months on a probation violation. WTH?
[cue David Lee Roth]
Good gravy, I wish this guy would just shut and go away.
Someone undergoing a sex change is having his and her writings published by the New York Times. Just wow.
Wasn’t he court martialed, convicted and reduced to Private, E-1? What country is this, again?
loppedoff is just angry about being surrounded by all those ‘nasty’ men...
The boy has “issues”. He thinks he’s a woman and he wants us to believe him? Get outta town. He ain’t right in the head.
That what I want to know also. Why is a prisoner in a military prison being allowed to communicate with, and write articles, for a newspaper?? And why is the MSM giving this wide publicity????
And speaking of this person, why is it that this trans-whatever traitor, by its actions, is NOT a bad reflection on the “LBGT” peoples??????
This guy should face a firing squad!!! Chelsey is a traitor!!!
Why is Bradley still breathing? What happened to “summary execution”?
Unless Manning spells out what were the lies, all he is giving is empty rhetoric. G’by Manning. Your 15 minutes is up.
Did you know you’re about to pay for his sex-change operation, estrogen regime and the rest along with all the expenses of keeping him in prison?
This is natural selection in self destruct mode. What would Darwin say? He would say, "You stupid sex changers. Did millions of years of evolution turn you into a sex changer? How is it possible that one becomes a deserter from the battle of the fittest?"
Nakoula Brasseley (YouTube filmmaker blamed for Benghazi) has just been exposed as a MOSLEM AGENT working for the White House.
Walid Shoebat just blew the lid off that little episode.
Google Shoebat and the filmmaker’s name and you’ll find Shoebat’s article dated approx June 12, 2014.
Good point. I did not go to the source article, but my thought when I read the part quoted here is that little Bradley did not write this. This whole leaking incident has been a well planned progressive stunt from the very beginning.
I suspect the same can be said for the Snowden affair.
Looks to me like, the progressives want to tarnish the reputations of the entire military and the entire intelligence community so that when any of the loyal Americans who are in those institutions speak up they will not be trusted by those of us who are patriots.
Good freaking gravy, people, get your butts out of knee jerk mode and read what the little peckerwood revealed. Both Iraq adventures were an idiot replay of Viet Nam, doomed to the same ending from the start, and for what...? Weapons of mass destruction my backside. You ever read the skinny on the “Gulf of Tonkin Incident?” Just Google it, the energy required is a mouse click. We either get smarter or we crash and burn. (Walks away shaking head, muttering...)
Those are limited to domestic no knock warrants now.
This could be Baraq’s diversion of the day...
They were doomed because the democrats would not support either cause. The first war achieved it’s goal of kicking Iraq out of Kuwait. In the second Iraq war, Bush had the terrorists on the run. A war, btw, that was voted on in Congress and accepted by Congress.
With a clowning press and the emergence of the man from nowhere who we STILL know nothing about, the tide in the war in Iraq was turned here in the states, not in Iraq.
Taking office, Obama intentionally squandered any resolve to do the right thing in Iraq for purely political purposes.
Iraq is in the mess it is right now because of the one named Odumbo.
Chelsea(leather pants) Manning is a traitor to his country. I think that it is sweet that you liked reading what he revealed.
I suggest you go score some more weed and have a toke or two. It will calm you down...
Bravo-Sierra, Bradley. Your 'concern' was homosexuals serving openly in the US Military. You had a hissy fit about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", and this, and this *alone* impelled you to commit espionage.
Had you merely 'soldiered on' without your act of espionage, and dare I say it, yes I dare, *TREASON*, your 'concern' would have been addressed in a manner your would have considered more than adequate. Thus, in short, you are *NO* hero, but a stupid twit.
I sincerely hope you are required to serve every day of the 35 years of your sentence, because STUPID should hurt...
Interesting that Nakoula the film maker is also a FedMob stooge.
Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch
L.A. man began cooperating after 2009 fraud bust
Interesting that Nakoula's websites track back to connections with 0bama.
Interesting that Nakoula's partner in the film was a palestinian Muslim with terrorist connections who was also watched by the Feds for three decades but never arrested and frequently bailed out by the Feds.
- Nakoula is a FedMob snitch.
- Nakoula's partner in the film was Eiad Salameh, a Palestinian Muslim.
- AFAIK Nakoula was never a film maker before. He was a check kiter.
- The film was not originally about Mohammed.
- Clips from the film were first aired on Egyptian TV just 3-4 days before Sept. 11th by a hardline 'tele-Islamist.'
- 0bama, Hillary and Rice have repeatedly made a point of saying that the U.S. gov had "nothing to do with the film." Something no one in the world would have ever thought.
- 0bama and Hillary have engaged in a major campaign of disinformation to blame the film and apologize for it.
Nakoula and Eiad may have made the film.
Someone else handled "distribution" and "promotion" in Egypt.
DoD contractor connected to Nakoula Youtube video
Montagraph put up a new video on May 1st. It is basically a refresher of his original findings of the connection between Stanley Inc., a DoD subcontractor, to the Innocence of Muslims video. He also shows when and by whom the name was changed.
Here is a video by another Vlogger who demonstrates how Innocence of Muslims was traced to Stanley Inc. through the meta-data.
