There was no conviction of aiding the enemy.
My bad, haven’t caught the news. Unauthorized disclosure/ transmitting classified information, or whatever then.
And stealing government secrets and then giving them away is worse than deserting.
That’s not for you to decide. What’s more harmful to American interests, disclosing the TPFDD data for the Army Band’s next movement, or deserting your unit in the midst of a major offensive?
Everything is situationally dependent.
I consider myself pretty liberal, but think he’s a traitor. So please don’t lump me and others like me into one broad category.
By liberal here, I mean far left liberal. The types who defend cop killers…
Typical NS rants. Yep, typical…where have I heard that ?
By liberal here, I mean far left liberal. The types who defend cop killers...
You think those accused of killing a cop should not have the right to a defense?
I mean defend as in “he’s innocent” after conviction and make some kind of cause of them despite being convicted. If they write a children’s book, far left lunatics love these cop killers even more.
I’ve only seen far right conservatives supporting Manning and Snowden.
Jeez those people tick me off.
Wrong newty. You should say libertarians support snowden as well as far lefties.. Not conservatives. At least when you make stuff up, make it realistic.
“at least when you make stuff up, make it realistic”…BINGO ! For once in your life, take your own advice.
Seriously, execution? That’s ridiculous. Yes, he did something bad. And he got hammered – anyone who thinks 35 years is “too soft” needs to spend a little time around a federal prison. He’ll be almost an old man when he gets out.
And for disclosure (as others are doing) – I’m currently active duty, and have been for the past 20 years.

No you don’t. By “liberal” or “far left liberal” or “defend cop killers” or “pay for Manning’s sex change” or any other of your broad generalizations about ill-defined “groups” you mean whatever is convenient for you at the time of your statements/questions. Futhermore, your comments are full of stereotypes. As a troll, I am hesitant to say you fit the stereotype as you are surely unique.
He’ll be elligible for parole starting in about 10 years.. He probably won’ serve all 35 years, plus reductions for good behavior. Very light sentence for a traitor.
Is it a stereotype that the ACLU is up in arms he’s been jailed let alone prosecuted, eh dezlboy?
Steve, as the news is reporting, his sentence far exceeds any other sentence for similar activity. So, isn’t that a good thing? And being eligible for parole is different from being granted parole. For what he was convicted of, his sentence was fair.
