    Pfc Manning was a good leaker, while whoever leaked stuff out of Hillary's campaign is a bad leaker.

    I'm glad that that's settled.

      That is pretty much it.

      What a joke of a POTUS.

          So she wants the operation and the VA doesn't have experience with it? Sounds like a good chance to practice.

              Manning, like Snowden, leaked classified national defense material... A serious crime, which could carry the death penalty.

              If the DNC & Clinton material was leaked, the leaker probably didn't break any laws.

                Let's just hope this saves the taxpayers some $$$...
                The commutation also relieved the Department of Defense of the difficult responsibility of her incarceration as she pushes for treatment for her gender dysphoria — including sex reassignment surgery — that the military has no experience providing.

                  Does someone with a Dishonorable get VA benefits? I don't think so. A commutation isn't a pardon... So, (fill in the gender sensitive noun of your choice here) can pay for it (fill in again).

                  But, given that transgenders have a suicide rate that's about ten times the norm...

                  Transgender suicide rate
                  41 percent
                  The National Transgender Discrimination Survey, the largest study of transgender people’s experiences, found that 41 percent of transgender and gender non-conforming people have attempted suicide, a rate far higher than the national average of 4.6 percent.

                          Today Obama pardoned a traitor (Manning) and a terrorist traitor (Lopez). I bet he will give Guantanamo Bay back to Cuba tomorrow. Can he do that without the Senate?

                          Better yet, can we abolish presidential pardons entirely? We're a republic, not a monarchy. We don't need some faux play on the Royal Prerogative of Mercy that only ends up being used for political purposes and donors.

                            We can't undo presidential pardons without amending the Constitution.

                            Regarding Gitmo, the law requires that the President to provide 30 days notice to Congress of any Gitmo transfers. He has flouted this law since at least the Berghdal treason.

                              Tried twice already. I guess being the belle of the cellblock isn't so great...

                              Yeah, no benefits whatsoever. The GCM stripped all that away years ago.

                              It certainly sends a message to anyone wanting to sell our secrets.
