    Another POS that the world would be better off without. HE deserves to rot for HIS entire sentence.

    Can not believe that that is not perceived by military members as a direct kick in the sack considering the oath taken upon enlistment.

    Political move to appeal to certain groups. And to think the US government was actually going go pay for this persons gender reassignment surgery while he served 35 yrs for endangering US citizens is simply amazing. Yet jt is very telling about the direction in which our country is moving.

    ohhhh, it is!!! And isn't it funny that the same ones who are celebrating Manning getting released are saying lock Assange up because he "influenced" the election?

    Sorry to be the bearer; but reports are that the release is scheduled 1 week after his surgery...giving "him" time to recuperate on our dime.

    Since DJT can't overrule a commutation; I hope he steps in and releases Manning a week BEFORE the surgery. FU, current POSUS. (Not a typo.)

    No one should be surprised by this. Over 1200 commutations for this president. Bush gave 11 and and Clinton gave about 60. HRC will be one by Friday.

    I read this morning that part of the reason they are releasing him is because they don't know how to handle the procedure of making him a woman.

    I think the Havalon would work perfect for this.

    I say they do the surgery now and let him in with the general population, would help him transition.

    Bad pardon without a doubt but who are the others that are far worse?

    I think that this one is just a distraction.
