Manning finds sympathy in NYC

| October 9, 2017 | 60 Comments

Fox News reports that the fellow who went to jail as Bradley Manning found a sympathetic crowd in New York City to whom he told lies about the classified information that he released to the public;

“These aren’t intelligence documents,” she said. “It’s historical data.”

She went on, “There’s nothing sensitive in there, there’s no troop movements,” she added. “It was a historical record of everything that had happened in Iraq and Afghanistan.”

I’m sorry but an Army private first class doesn’t get to make those kinds of distinctions – he wasn’t the arbiter of what is classified and what is not classified. He can’t even decide whether his barracks room is “clean enough”. PFC Manning wasn’t sure if he was a male or female soldier, how can he be expected to decide what is and what isn’t classified correctly.

Manning was asked by one tearful audience questioner whether her experience had made her “more cynical about fairness.”

“I do have cynical moments,” she said, tearing up again. “But then I get past them, you know? I turn to my friends, and I turn to my family … and then they cheer me up.”

Fairness would be if the government would execute traitors instead of letting them out of prison and running around loose in the world, but they don’t, so me, I’m cynical about fairness, but no one asked.

    He can go upstate and visit the Commie LT.

  2. RM3(SS) says:

    Your 16 minutes are up Bradley, don’t go away mad, just go away.

  3. Stacy0311 says:

    He can find all the sympathy he needs in a dictionary.
    It’s between shit and syphilis

  4. The Stranger says:

    He didn’t need to go to New York to find sympathy. Last time I looked, it was in the dictionary somewhere between “shit” and “syphillis”.

  5. Hondo says:

    My comment concerning Bergdahl is also applicable here: since this traitorous (common definition) bastard did not get the death penalty he so richly deserved, I wish him the following:

    May he live a long, joyless, and impoverished life;
    may he die a slow and painful death; and
    may he then rot in hell for the remainder of eternity.

  6. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Anybody and everybody who sympathizes with Manning and/or Bergdahl can practice Coprophagy every day of their lives until they decease!

  7. SgtM says:

    If Obama had a scrawny white son who liked to dress like a girl…….

  8. Club Manager says:

    Ummmm, Jonn,it appears you made a couple of typo’s in the item. Should “she” not be “it”?

  9. Perry Gaskill says:

    Liar, liar, pants on fire, Bradley. It’s not just that it isn’t up to the little psycho to decide if something should be classified or not. It’s also that he pulled 400,000 classified documents, and would have no way of knowing if the names of informants were exposed or not.

    Bradley’s attempt to call all that classified stuff “historical data” also ignores the point that material is often sensitive because to reveal it would be to expose means and methods of how it was gathered.

    • David says:

      He didn’t know what the f*** he was doing while he was in, what makes anyone think he has a capable objective assessment of what he did damn near a decade later?

      • Perry Gaskill says:

        You might be preaching to the choir, Reverend David. If you want to ponder something to make somebody spill their breakfast beer, consider that Bradley was speaking at a New Yorker magazine event and people were paying to hear him.

  10. The Other Whitey says:

    The wannabe-eunuch Bradley Manning needs to disappear. It’s too bad the chick who kicked his ass left him alive.

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    There is only one thing I could wish for this attention-whoring little bitch: that s/he/it is ignored by its next birthday 2018.

  12. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Maybe the NYC mayor will hire bradley as his PIO.

  13. Mark Lauer says:

    I’m in the Coast Guard Auxiliary up here in Minnesota.
    In the early spring, about the time the ice is melting on Lake Superior, there’s a CG ice breaker that goes out on the lake to open shipping lanes.
    Sometimes Auxiliary members from my area are granted a chance to go aboard this ship while it is on Ice Operations.
    When we get these opportunities we are not allowed to tell anyone where we are going, why we are going, or when the ship will be operating.
    When I first heard this I thought it was rather ridiculous.
    But; it is an American warship first and foremost. As such, any movement it makes out of port is classified. So, we have to keep it a secret.
    It may sound funny on the surface, but when you get down to it, it is serious business. And so, I respect that order, and I follow it. I do NOT make my own decision about it, and say; “ah, that’s so dumb. I’ll just follow the orders I think have a good reason behind them”.
    I’m an Auxiliary OFFICER. I have to act like one.

    “not intelligent documents”

    They just contained details about the communications systems used by top UN officials, including passwords and personal encryption keys used in official communications.

    Names and addresses of people working for the US, confidential sources several of which had to be evacuated and lost the US many good information points on terror groups, etc

    But hey, Manning said these are not intelligence documents so it must be true

  15. MSG Eric says:

    The only reason Manning gets any sympathy is “because transgender!”

    If Manning hadn’t come out with the claim of “transgender!” no one would give a rat fuck about him. Ridiculous and ignorant of some to act like he’s a fucking hero only “Because transgender!”

    • RM3(SS) says:

      He ain’t “transgender” until he finishes his Transit. I just happen to have a nice rusty razorblade out in the garage and would gladly help him along on his journey.

  16. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    call out Lorena Bobbit for the razor job.(1993)

  17. 11B-Mailclerk says:

    The only way that skidmark is likely getting sympathy is by waiving a one hundred dollar bill on a seedy street corner.

  18. Ret_25X says:

    the real scandal here is not Manning in and of itself. The real story is that enough people in the USA are so stupid–so determinedly ignorant that they might actually care what someone like this has to say.

    They vote and they breed.

    Be warned. The future looks bleak.

  19. Reb says:

    I know I’m only thirteen but I read everything we could find…ITS a damn traitor no ifs ands or buts…
    Its okay to be a traitor someone will pardon your sick ass…

  20. USAFRetired says:

    I thought sympathy was found between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.

    From memory a fair amount of what he compromised were classified State Department cables and SecState Clinton was outraged.

  21. mr. sharkman says:

    People – good people with honest intentions – put their trust in the USA in good faith and Manning set them up for a major fvcking over.

    And a lot of his victims are not the type of people who are going to make the news when they just happen to turn up dead in a dark alley in the shittiest part of a shitty town with their wallet missing and their throat slit.

  22. SFC D says:

    Bradley, listen carefully, you sniveling little turd. The content of the documents you decided to release don’t matter 1 little pinch of shit, it doesn’t matter if it was the menu from Vinny’s fuckin pizza. YOU don’t get to decide what is releasable. YOU are a failure as a human fucking being and should go live your life in quiet shame far away from the rest of humanity.

    • just some feller says:

      …[Manning’s] Twitter feed generally looks like my kid’s puppy took a poop after she ate a bunch of multi-colored nerf darts (yes, it really happened, and yes, it really did look like she ate a small gay man and subsequently pooped rainbows), filled with needless emoticons, rainbows, and contrived self motivation about all these alleged “challenges” he faces as a trans “woman.”…

      That was funny!
