Breanna’s panties discussed in testimony

| December 5, 2012

According to the Associated Press, Marine Corps Master Sgt. Brian Papakie had to explain himself today in court when he was asked if a comment he made about Breanna Manning’s panties was intended to be anti-gay;

Papakie testified on cross-examination about a memo he wrote after the brig commander ordered Manning stripped of his underwear each night starting March 2, 2011. Manning stood naked at attention for a prisoner count the next morning, causing a stir that prompted Papakie to write an email to ensure it didn’t happen again.

“Make sure he is not standing at attention naked for evening count right before taps. You should be taking his panties right before he lays down,” Papakie wrote.

Under questioning by defense attorney David Coombs, Papakie said he uses the word interchangeably with “skivvies” and “underwear” when discussing men’s undershorts.

“I’ve always used the phrase, `Don’t get my panties in a bunch,’ which is what I tell the staff all the time,” he said.

Papakie acknowledged that he knew Manning was gay but said he didn’t consider the word “panties” homophobic. He conceded that it was not professional to use the term in a memo.

But the master sergeant had good reason to refer to Manning’s drawers as panties, it seems.

[Marine Corps Master Sgt. Craig] Blenis referred to a letter Manning had signed “Breanna Manning,” an alias he had used on occasion. The defense revealed at a hearing last year that Manning had written to a supervisor in Baghdad before his arrest, saying he suffered from gender-identity disorder. He included a picture of himself dressed as a woman and talked about how it was affecting his ability to do his job and think clearly.

So, why does the defense have their panties in a bunch?

    How about a deal? You spare us the play-by-play and just tell us when he’s swinging from a tree. Anything between now & then will just trigger our inability to tolerate bullshit nonsense from a little girl that should have never been allowed to enlist in the first place. Sigh.

    Who was her damn recruiter anyhow?

    Anything by our disgusting society to make our enemies look like victims.

  3. Just Plain Jason says:

    Do they know how many guys I have told to shut their “cockholster”? It has nothing to do if they are gay or not…for fucks sake.

  4. Ex-PH2 says:

    How long is this idiot Manning going to go on being the center of its own universe?

    Maybe we could send him …her…it a nice coupon for a Fredrik’s of Hollywood underwear for men.

    @3…my new one is “ball washer”…as in keep your ball washer shut

  6. PALADIN says:

    This damn story gets more sordid by the day.
    How did this Pud lickin little turd ever make it into the Army ?
    And into a intel MOS none the less.
    I thought the psy test for that slot was pretty much fool proof?
    Probably had to take the little kneescraper…..would’nt have been “inclusive” if he was rejected.
    Things are a total bearfuck now a days.

  7. Stacy0311 says:

    I still vote for a cage match between Manning and Hassan. Who ever walks out (figuratively speaking) gets 20 to life instead of the death penalty

  8. Yat Yas 1833 says:

    This is the very reason I took early retirement! I can’t deal with the PC crap anymore. This little pig eyed, traitorous son of a bitch is worried about someone talking about his panties?!? Screw him in the a$$ with a 2X4 with no KY.

  9. Poetrooper says:

    One has to wonder if the American Psychological Association may designate a new term for gender deviation: panty-head.

    Sure seems to fit here.

    Panties? really is this what we’ve come to?

  11. NR Pax says:

    @5: My personal favorite is “dick mitten.” I suppose I should turn myself in now.

  12. Ex-PH2 says:

    Dick mitten? Panty head? Is that the best you guys can do for insults this morning? Try rutting, rump-fed butt-bailiff.

    When is this sordid saga going to have an end? This shoe thief is boring the living crap out of me. If it wants attention this badly, send it to my house. I have an unheated, padlocked gardening shed where it can roost over the winter with my lawnmower.

  13. NR Pax says:

    Ex-PH2, I used that term for low-level encounters when more detailed insults of the transgressing Marine’s hygiene, mental health and overall intelligence were not required. “Shut your dickmitten” was generally sufficient to communicate my point. I was one of those quiet NCOs that didn’t scream until it was really necessary.

  14. Ex-PH2 says:

    I COULD pare it down to butt-bailiff, if I were in a hurry.

    I enjoy the process of producing a string of invective, whenever possible, especially if in direct contact with the offender. The shortened version says I’m in a hurry, no time to chat.

    The more colorful, the better.

    “Papakie acknowledged that he knew Manning was gay but said he didn’t consider the word ‘panties’ homophobic.”

    If he acknowledged it, that signals he was asked a question such as, “Do you regard as homophobic a person who uses the term panties as you used that term?” Welcome to America 2012.

  16. NR Pax says:

    “ASVAB waiver” and “Colon Spelunker” were a couple of other terms I used when needed.

    OK, back to Breanna. I notice that he keeps using his homosexuality and gender identity disorder as an excuse for what he did. I’m willing to bet gay service people aren’t happy with him for that.

  17. Ex-PH2 says:

    Colon spelunker. Duly noted. How about rectal mugger?

  18. Twist says:

    I always prefered “shut your glory hole”.

    I agree with NR Pax. I’m sure that there are plenty of homosexual service members that are upset that Manning is using it as his defense.

  19. USMCE8Ret says:

    I’m with what #7 said…

    If Breanna “The Carpet Munching Cum Guzzler” can defeat Hassan “The Allahu-Akbar Beard” in a cage match, then one of them is spared the death penalty.

    Honestly, as both of these cases are going, it’s doubtful either will get the death penalty, and perhaps less than life in prison.

  20. Just an Old Dog says:

    The way things are going they will both have charges dismissed, apologized to by Barry Obama, given 20 million dollars in a lawsuit and a reality tv show.

    “How did this Pud lickin little turd ever make it into the Army ?”

    They wanted him. Desperately.


    “The decision to discharge him was revoked, and he was ‘recycled,’ because the army needed his IT skills.”

    Boot is supposed to (among other things) weed out those who aren’t psychologically a good fit for the service. They asked for something like this to happen the moment they decided his skills were more important than his character.
