As many people have observed: Leaks that hurt US national security are meh at worse, but leaks that hurt Democratic political ambitions? Unforgivable.
Yeah, that. But also this is a huge middle finger to the military (and every soldier who served honorably), and a big wet sloppy pajama-hug to the radical LGBT left. So, for Obama, a two-fer.
The Democrat-Media Complex will be giving Manning interviews, followed by the inevitable book deal and perhaps a tenure-track position teaching “Gender Issues in National Security” at a university.
And these aren’t the last. What’s over-under on Cop-Killer Mumia Abu Jamal getting a commutation?
