First of all, a bit of a shout out to Gay Patriot because those guys are proving once again that there are gays out there who do not behave like the Bradley Mannings of this world. How can I explain this statement? The first time that I heard about Bradley Manning I knew that he was a gay, and that he was using his alleged treatment, or something like that, since I thought the original excuse was that he had a tiff with an ex-lover, in the Defense Force as a reason for his actions. His defense team are claiming maltreatment and of all things a gender dissonance for his actions, and to this the people behind the blog GayPatriot are saying “mushroom fodder”. (sorry for the lack of a link because I did not save the post).
Second, as the commitment proceedings continue it seems that Mr. Manning is not being entirely truthful regarding everything that took place. The prosecution witness with what might be considered a lack of credibility is a former hacker who had a drug problem at one point. However, it is this former hacker who did in fact turn Manning in to the authorities. The hacker thought that Manning had gone too far. According to the witness evidence, Manning sought him out via Facebook, and he thought that this was in order to brag about what he had done.
Third, there was another witness, his superior who also took the stand today, and this is quite curious because it seems that Bradley Manning had attacked her a few weeks before his arrest. Is it possible that Manning actually thought that he would get caught, and that he provoked the attack in order to set up a scenario that would give him cover?
This left-wing person knew exactly what he was doing when he joined the Armed Services. He knew about the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. Hundreds, if not thousands of gay men and women have served with unblemished records, and they have not had the alleged difficulties as claimed by Manning. His whole intention was to hack into the computer servers and find those emails or cables that he passed on to Julian Assange and Wikileaks. Everything he did was deliberate. He should be court-martialled and he should be found guilty and receive a very stiff sentence.
