    Former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning has no misgivings about being the force behind what’s been called one of the most notorious leaks of classified documents in U.S. history. “I don’t have any regrets. You can’t go back in time and change things,” said Manning Wednesday night, speaking to a packed room at the Annenberg Center’s Zellerbach Theatre on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania. “I made the decision to do what I did, so that’s it.” Manning’s somewhat laid-back response fails to capture the magnitude of the hundreds of thousands of diplomatic cables from U.S. embassies and consulates...

    Watching the military lately is like watching an Evil Knievel 20 bus jump gone wrong; a Wide World of Sports skier careen into a throng of spectators; an out of control freight train laden with deadly chemicals, ready to derail that no one seems to have the ability to stop. The merde is indeed hitting the ventilateur in the bowels of the Pentagon and across the world at US military bases and on US ships of war. It’s safe to say that in the US military, the thrill of victory is long gone and the agony of defeat is here...

    Having had his sentence for betraying the nation commuted by President Barack Obama, former soldier Chelsea Manning is making the rounds of various public speaking appearances. One of these took place in the Big Apple at the New Yorker Festival yesterday. When the question came up of the hundreds of thousands of sensitive documents he dumped out into the public sphere, Manning claimed that he had not, in fact, done anything wrong. The reason? They weren’t “intelligence documents” but rather “historical data.” And no… I’m not even kidding. (Fox News) Chelsea Manning on Sunday told a crowd at the annual...

    As Cortney wrote on Thursday, Harvard was embroiled in controversy, as the institution decided to extend a visiting fellowship invitation to convicted felon Chelsea Manning. Manning, who served in Army Intelligence, is responsible for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified materials on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Upon Manning’s conviction, she was sentenced to 35 years in prison of which she served seven years before President Barack Obama commuted the sentence. The invitation led to the resignation of former CIA Director Michael Morell as a senior fellow. Current CIA Director Mike Pompeo also canceled an event in light of this...

    Facing backlash from high-ranking current and former CIA officials, the Dean of the Kennedy School of Government withdrew an invitation for Chelsea Manning to serve as a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics in late-night reversal Friday. “I now think that designating Chelsea Manning as a Visiting Fellow was a mistake, for which I accept responsibility,” Kennedy School Dean Douglas W. Elmendorf wrote in a statement posted to the school’s website shortly after midnight. The school withdrew the invitation to Manning—a transgender activist and former U.S. Army soldier who was imprisoned after disclosing over 700,000 classified government documents— after...

    Conspiracy theorist and founder of media outlet InfoWars Alex Jones came under fire Thursday night after he shared a video that claims Michelle Obama is a man. The video was posted to Jones' website, InfoWars, after the 43-year-old claimed during his podcast that it provided "proof" that Obama was a man. Jones pointed to photos of the former first lady wearing pants or skirts that crease, saying they show a "large bulge inside her pants," and claimed that late comedian Joan Rivers' 2014 comment calling Obama a "tranny" is proof his theory is right. "Since the early days of the...

    Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the transgender soldier convicted of giving classified government materials to WikiLeaks, was released from a Kansas military prison early Wednesday after serving seven years of her 35-year sentence. The leak, which Manning said she provided "to show the true cost of war", is considered to be the largest of its kind in USA history. "Manning is statutorily entitled to medical care while on excess leave in an active duty status, pending final appellate review", said Foster, the Army spokesman. "I am looking forward to so much!" said a statement released by Manning through her legal team, the...

    Washington (CNN)US authorities have prepared charges to seek the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, US officials familiar with the matter tell CNN. The Justice Department investigation of Assange and WikiLeaks dates to at least 2010, when the site first gained wide attention for posting thousands of files stolen by the former US Army intelligence analyst now known as Chelsea Manning. Prosecutors have struggled with whether the First Amendment precluded the prosecution of Assange, but now believe they have found a way to move forward.

    Late last week, after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton informed the White House of the likely fall-out from the WikiLeaks cable dump, the White House came back with a question: "What's our corrective action?" Clinton's undersecretary for management, Patrick Kennedy, had a simple suggestion: pull the plug on SIPRNet, the classified DoD network that PFC Bradley Manning reportedly used to download the cables from State's inhouse classified database. "The White House said do it," says a senior administration official. The publication by WikiLeaks of more than 250,000 diplomatic cables, many of them classified, is forcing an administration-wide intelligence retrenchment as...
  • Can Donald Trump Rescind Chelsea Manning's Clemency?

    President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced his predecessor’s decision to shorten the prison sentence of WikiLeaks source Chelsea Manning. But he’s almost certainly unable to rescind the act of clemency that will see Manning released in May. Pardons have been rescinded before and commutations have been modified, but experts appear to lean unanimously in Manning's favor, even though they are divided on the finer points of clemency-revocation powers. "I can think of examples of where conditions were changed, but they're always toward leniency," professor and clemency expert P.S. Ruckman says about historical commutation changes.

    Donald Trump Rightfully Calls Chelsea Manning a 'TRAITOR,' Washington Post Takes Offense [TWEET BY DONALD TRUMP] With Trump, there's this little game I like to play called "Good Trump, Bad Trump." One day he appears to be completely rational and highly principled, but the next day he behaves like a spoiled brat who can't accept the fact that fewer people attended his inauguration than Obama's. Good Trump, Bad Trump. It differs from day to day, and often even from hour to hour. Obviously, this tweet about Chelsea Manning proves that Good Trump is currently in charge of the man. Chelsea...
