Female Military Judges Offer Soft Touch In Hasan/Manning Trials

Seriously, folks, I do not go looking for examples of extreme Political Correctness in the military or anywhere else. As I read military news journals and hear from the boots on the ground soldiers, it is conclusive that our great American military is being systematically disemboweled through leftist and liberal ideological engineering.
Bradley (aka transgender name Chelsea) Manning has been treated with kid gloves, or rather ladies fashion gloves, from the time he enlisted in the military. He erupted into inexplicable snits during military schooling, he slapped a fellow female soldier, he sent pictures of himself dressed in women's clothes out on the internet, things which would not been tolerated in the Marine Corps today or yesterday's Army. Because Don't Ask Don't Tell was in the works, I am sure the military was well aware of his confused sexuality and behavior - long before he was sent to the theater of war in Iraq. Manning downloaded hundreds of thousands of secret documents, including soldiers' email addresses, locations of prisoners of war, and secret combat logs. No matter, Hollywood and the rest of the Left lionized Manning and are now groaning about his "stiff" sentence of 7 years, if he remains a good boy, or girl, in the military stockade. Military Judge Denise Lind, faculty member of George Washington University and member of the New York Bar Association rendered a very moderate and motherly sentence to Manning. She may again have to judge as to whether Manning may have transgender surgery to fulfill his inner Chelsea (the female name he would like to be addressed with) paid for by the U.S. Government. His liking Lady Gaga should have given the military brass a clue that this fellow/lady was not going to be a good soldier.
Now, here comes military Judge Colonel Tara Osborn (related to Ozzie?) who was chosen to replace male judge Colonel Gregory Gross, because he was a bit "tough" on the vulnerable Major Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood assassin who shot and or killed 43 soldiers, as he said, for Allah and Islam.
Again, Leftist Engineering, even in the hallowed halls of the military, was at play long before Nidal Hasan shot up Fort Hood. For years, Hasan, as a psychiatrist officer, was shouting the praise of Islam while denigrating the United States as he "treated" fellow soldiers. Political Correctness prohibited, or at least inhibited, fellow officers from reporting the outrageous behavior. It has not just been President Obama who has been reluctant to call a terrorist a terrorist.
In any event, male Judge Colonel Gregory Gross was replaced by female Judge Colonel Tara Osborn because Col. Gross made the terrible mistake of demanding that killer Hasan shave his beard, as it is against military rules to have an unshaven face in the trial. The rules just had to be broken citing Relgious Freedom, and that it would be disrespectful to Allah and Islam not to don a beard. In her motherly mode Judge Tara Osborn recently denied the prosecution's attempt to enter in historical evidence, including email correspondence between Hasan and Anwar al-Awlaki, the American born Islamic cleric who encouraged at least 3 of the 9/11 hijackers to fly planes into the Twin Towers.
Political Correctness is ruining our military on so many levels. Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell will prove to be a disaster, which will only be exposed, unfortunately, when the U.S. again engages in a full scale war. When I was in the service, in Vietnam, only about 3 percent of the Armed Forces were composed of women. Now, it is over 15 percent and higher, depending on the branch of service. Why is it a mystery that there has been a gigantic increase in sexual assault cases, illegitimate pregnancies on duty when deployed, adulteries,even suicides, and so on within the military? It should be a no-brainer.
George Washington, who knew a little something about combat, was adamantly opposed to female and homosexual soldiers. Is Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Martin Dempsey, who has promoted Political Correctness, smarter than George Washington? The question is ridiculous.

OTOH - a female judge will sentence the guy who is Islamic. How humiliating for him. Hahahaha.

Excellent piece, dead on the mark.
Especially regarding Dempsey.

If Hasan is found guilty will Obama pardon him?

This is much worse than “political correctness” - traitors committing treason to bring the country down while advancing their oh-so important military careers.

My first thought when I heard he wanted a sex change was just so he could be housed with females, instead of the big scary men. lol My second thought was, what prevents straight men from just claiming they identify “as a female” and demand they be housed with them as well - even without any hormones or surgery? Don’t discount this idea - public schools in California already let anyone use either bathroom....
At the rate they are throwing out evidence he will be found guilty of littering

best way to savethemilitary is to get the gays out entirely, and women out of anything combat and off subs and ships. seriously i believe the more it gets screwed up the more drastic measures need be taken.

In a just world, somebody inside Leavenworth would give Manning its precious surgery for free.

Great observations. We were saying the same thing about female military judges. Not worth crap.
Next, Bradley Manning will be shopping at Victoria’s Secret with an MP escort.
I don’t get it. They do in-depth background checks for TS clearance. This Manning guy is strobe-light whack job and he still gets access? What the hell.

You assume they still do the background checks as they did in your, and my days in uniform. Do you recall what AR 00-00 had to say about 'assume'?
