I don’t give a damn about Bradley Manning’s “personal story.” Or his confusion about his gender. None of that matters. He is a traitor.
President Barack Obama announced his plan to free Chelsea Manning (who changed his name from Bradley) after leaking classified military documents to Wikileaks and being sentenced to 35 years in prison for his crimes.
