Topic - Arrest Of Bradley Manning
Pvt. Bradley Manning — who made media waves during his federal trial by announcing he'd rather be called Chelsea — has penned a Thanksgiving thank-you in Time in part to Martin Luther King Jr., citing the civil rights leader's pioneering break-through in social justice as a source of personal inspiration.
Liberals get surly when their identity fantasy is exposed
Opening this year’s festival on Thursday is the premiere of Bill Condon’s dramatization of Julian Assange and WikiLeaks, “The Fifth Estate” — a film with which Mr. Assange refused to cooperate and which he has called “a massive propaganda attack.”
Pentagon leaks on Syria highlight low military morale
Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, who now is serving a 35-year sentence at Fort Leavenworth for leaking stacks of classified documents to WikiLeaks for publication, wants a pardon from President Obama for information he released that isn't deemed so sensitive.
Jailbirds Ophelia De'Lonta and Bradley Manning have a lot in common. Taxpayers are paying for their incarceration, and both want those same taxpayers to pick up the tab for sex-change operations. It's a sign of the times.
The attorney for Pvt. Bradley Manning, the convicted document leaker who insisted on his way to Fort Leavenworth that he wants to be a woman called Chelsea, said his client is doing well in prison and has already made several friends who have accepted “her for who she is.”
The Obama administration made its case for a possible military strike against Syria, and Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the Fort Hood Massacre. On the international stage, the British House of Commons rejected a proposal from British Prime Minister David Cameron that would have given America's ally the ability to join it in a military campaign against Syria. Here's a recap, or wrap, of the week that was from The Washington Times.
The Washington Times should refrain from adopting the politically correct Associated Press style of referring to people as "him" or "her" according to way these people perceive themselves ("Army: No gender reassignment for Bradley Manning," Web, Aug. 22). To do so is biologically wrong and journalistically corrupt.
After being sentenced to 35 years at Leavenworth for betraying his country, Pfc. Bradley Manning said he wants to live as a woman. This reality show drama would normally be an asterisk in an embarrassing case for the American military. The absurd request, however, will get mainstream recognition now that The Associated Press announced that all media who follow its vaulted guide should refer to him as “her” and Bradley as “Chelsea.” The political correctness in journalism has hit an all-time low.
The attorney for Army Pvt. Bradley Manning — the convicted soldier who now wants the world to call him Chelsea Manning — says his client is more than willing to pay for estrogen treatments himself, if the military allows.
The story of 25-year-old Army Pvt. Bradley Manning, now convicted of espionage, demoted and sentenced to 35 years at Fort Leavenworth prison, has taken a bizarre turn.
One day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison, Army Pvt. Bradley Manning said Thursday he wants to live the rest of his life as a woman.
A military judge is poised to deliberate the prison sentence of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning on Tuesday and decide whether he will serve the 25 years the defense has requested, the 60 years the prosecution is seeking or the 90 years his crimes could bring.
Pfc. Bradley Manning, 25, is a quiet cross-dresser who wears lipstick and a long-haired blond wig, a photograph released by the Army during his court martial hearing revealed.
Shortly after his arrest and incarceration, Pvt. Manning announced through his attorney that he was actually a woman trapped in a man's body and that media outlets and others refer to him as a her, and by the new name of Chelsea.
