Bradley Manning Story Takes Weird Turn!

Hold on tight to something, grandma!  The tale of Pfc. Bradley Manning is only going to get much stranger now! Just one day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking classified documents to WikiLeaks, Pfc. Bradley Manning now claims to be a transsexual and is asking the military to pay for sexual reassignment therapy hormones although it’s against Army policy for transsexuals to serve in the military or to provide sexual reassignment services. The former Bradley Manning now wants to be called “she”, now claiming his name to be Chelsea Manning. Further, some supporters of the classified secrets leaker are pushing for him to be pardoned by the president which is more than unlikely, as it would set a terrible example to others in government to leak classified secrets, no matter how damaging to U.S. security interests. Further, it is now possible Manning uses the transsexual defense in some bid to appeal his sentence.  To bolster his claim here, Manning shot a cellphone looking picture where he donned a blonde wig and a little mascara, eye shadow and lipstick. So is this on the level, or just some crazy new defense angle here? This story just keeps getting more offbeat!

See, I promised you that this would be a weird story here.  Am I right?

  • Yeah… this is getting just plain bizarre.

    More and more I wonder how he was able to get a clearance in the first place.

      Unfortunately, some prisoners come up with this transsexual nonsense as a defense to appeal after they are convicted and sentenced to a long prison term. It almost never works, but some prisoners egg on their lawyers to try to use it to appeal. It’s a pretty lame defense, and seldom a real case of transsexualism.
