Manning was a criminal who endangered the lives of the intelligence assets whose communications she leaked. She also greatly aided our enemies by releasing astoundingly complete military records of the prosecution of the Iraq and Afghan war, including videos of the July 12, 2007 Baghdad airstrike, and the 2009 Granai airstrike in Afghanistan; 251,287 U.S. diplomatic cables,and 482,832 Army reports that came to be known as the “Iraq War Logs” and “Afghan War Diary”.

Her original 35 year sentence was just. That she is free is a travesty.
