    The seemingly endless saga of convicted traitor Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley) is moving into its next phase. After serving only a handful of the 35 years he was supposed to do for espionage, he had his sentence somewhat infamously commuted by Barack Obama and will be getting out of the slammer next week. In advance of his freedom, Manning is already busy putting out press releases and the first isn’t particularly newsworthy. (Associated Press) Chelsea Manning, who is scheduled to be released from prison next week, thanked former President Barack Obama, who granted her clemency in the final days of...

Named one of the best classical music recordings of 2015 by The New York Times, this powerful work grapples with how we as individuals and a nation can confront the information Manning exposed.

    FULL TITLE: Mike Pence slams Obama's decision to free Chelsea Manning as a 'mistake' because she is a 'traitor who shouldn't be turned into a martyr' Vice President-elect Mike Pence says Barack Obama's decision to commute former U.S. Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning's prison sentence 'was a mistake'. Obama said on Wednesday that he commuted Manning's 35-year prison sentence for releasing classified military documents to Wikileaks because the punishment didn't fit the crime. He said the prison sentence was too long, compared to other leakers. But Pence disagreed during an interview with Fox News' Special Report with Bret Baier later...

    The Army says former private Chelsea Manning will lose her military healthcare benefits despite President Obama’s commutation of her prison sentence. “If Pvt. Manning is discharged with a dishonorable discharge, she will lose her entitlement to [military] benefits, including gender-transition care at [military] medical treatment facilities,” Army spokeswoman Cynthia Smith told USA Today Wednesday. Smith said Manning’s dishonorable discharge was included in the terms of the 35-year prison sentence imposed on her in 2013. Manning was convicted of leaking classified information about U.S. national security activities that were later publicly disclosed by WikiLeaks. Smith said Manning could appeal her discharge...

    Will WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now honor his promise to allow himself to be extradited to the U.S.? To the Left the highest form of service to America is to betray it. This is why President Obama yesterday ordered that the 35-year sentence of convicted traitor U.S. Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning be commuted. Manning, who leaked vast quantities of classified materials, was born male with the given name Bradley but now identifies as female.

    Chelsea Manning saw injustice and stood up for what’s right. Now, she’s serving a 35 year sentence in an all-male military prison. She’s been systematically abused by the U.S. government, held in conditions that the UN considers to be torture, and has attempted suicide twice during her 7 years behind bars. But now there’s hope. NBC reports that she is on President Obama’s “short list” for commutation. The news has sparked a groundswell of support for Chelsea online. Hundreds of thousands of people have already taken action to support her, but now the message is simpler than ever. But now...

    President Barack Obama is seriously considering a pardon for former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning, according to a new report from NBC News. Manning was convicted of violations of the Espionage Act and other charges in July 2013 after he stole nearly a million secret documents while working as an intelligence analyst, later giving them to WikiLeaks. The files detailed operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and revealed secret diplomatic cables, some of which were highly embarrassing to the US. A Justice Department source told NBC News that Manning was on the president's "short list" for commutations. The 29-year-old is currently...

    A military prison psychologist has refused to recommend that Chelsea Manning's gender be changed to female in her Army service record, complicating the transgender soldier's quest to wear a feminine hairstyle at the men's prison where she is serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified information, according to a court document. Manning's American Civil Liberties Union lawyers disclosed the decision in a filing Monday in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The document says the chief of the Mental Health Division at the Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, prison declined Manning's Nov. 4 request to update her gender in the...

    Army Private Chelsea Manning, the convicted source of the biggest intelligence leak in U.S. military history, began a hunger strike Friday over what she described as “constant and overzealous administrative scrutiny by prison and military officials.” Manning, 28, who is serving time in a federal prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, said in a statement released by her supporters that she will consume only water and prescription medicines starting Friday morning, and will forgo voluntarily cutting her hair. The incarcerated soldier said her protest is aimed at prompting officials to recognize her need for treatment, especially with respect to gender dysphoria,...

Manning's supporters on Wednesday plan to unveil 115,000 petition signatures to the Secretary of the Army demanding the special medical treatment. They also want the Army to drop charges stemming from her July 5 suicide attempt. In a statement alerting the media to the Wednesday event, the head of a group supporting Manning said that the military is mistreating the jailed soldier formerly known as Bradley Manning.
