2. Totally worth it because W and Rove and Rumsfeld etc. are in Gitmo for life.

 

Oh, sorry, was peeking into a positive alternate dimension. Won't do THAT again.

6. Yup -

 

"Justice" in the US sure has a funny way of being meted out.

5. Can he earn time off for good behavior?

 

or is that not possible in the military system?

8. I do not know.

 

There is also the question of time served -- I hope that is factored in.

10. He must serve one third of the sentence

According to the military, Manning is required to serve one-third of the sentence before he becomes eligible for parole


Manning will receive a credit of 1,293 days for the time he has been confined prior to the sentence, including 112 days of credit for abusive treatment he was subjected to at the Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va.

Perhaps the best we could hope for under the twisted circumstances.

17. He will be eligible for parole after doing 1/3 of the time.

In the military system you get 10 days good time for every month of good behavior. He has already served 3 years so in theory he could get parole after about 9-10 years and if they refused parole he would get out after about 20 years assuming good behavior. He is also eligible to apply for clemency after 1 year and each year following that.

9. I think it's up to us -

 

to make sure of that. WE need to write the history on Manning. We also need to shape a Party that does not do everything in its power to crush Truthtellers.(yeah, I'm talking about you, Democrats).

16. Too harsh given the questionable mens rea

10 + a BCD makes more sense to me.
