    Army Leaker Chelsea Manning on Obama's 'Short List' for Commutation

    Army Leaker Chelsea Manning on Obama’s ‘Short List’ for Commutation – NBCNews



    President Obama has put Chelsea Manning, the former Army intelligence analyst serving a 35-year sentence for leaking classified material, on his short list for a possible commutation, a Justice Department source told NBC News.A decision could come as soon as Wednesday for Manning, who has tried to commit suicide twice this year and went on a hunger strike in a bid for gender reassignment surgery.

    “I have more hope right now than I have the entire time since she was sentenced,” Manning’s aunt, Deborah Manning, told NBC News.

    “I do think it’s the last hope for a while.”

    Manning — then known as Bradley — was locked up in 2010 after swiping 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables and giving them to Wikileaks.

    3. Fingers crossed for Chelsea!!!!!

    That would help me forgive some of President Obama’s bad act and show he has great compassion.

    4. Just do it. Do something right for once. Before it's too late.

    "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848
