9. It's not a deal--the government didn't negotiate this. It's a proffer to the court by a defendant

who has very few options.

Mr. Manning doesn't get 'whisteblower' status because he did not act as he was legally required to do so, under the Military Whisteblower's Protection Act of 1988. Had he done so, he would have been immune to prosecution. I guess giving classified documents to Julian Assange was cooler than following the law.
