and I can discuss any finer points of the case that you would like to. I am very knowledgeable on Manning (having taught at the 35F School house while he was a student there, he was not my student though) and very knowledgeable on Military Intelligence and on issues of declassifying data and also the Iraq war in general as I have three tours there under my belt. Manning is a criminal, it is that easy, he compromised a lot of Intelligence and he will serve a lot of jail time for that. I have no hatred or dislike for the young man, but he was wrong and he made mistakes and he will pay for them. That being said, I am more than happy to talk about this issue as long as we agree to stick to facts, not how you wish the law was written.
