15. Nope, it didn't, all they did is clarify to those running around
claiming Obama DID convict manning that Obama /didn't/ convict him, he gave his(and the governments) opinion that manning broke the law which is why there are charges against the man.

If the whole statement of Obama is read then its clear he restated the governments view on manning
