The traitor Bradley Manning

From AP story Alleged Army whistleblower felt angry and alone: Manning wrote he had copied onto compact discs "possibly the largest data spillage in American history" while listening and lip-synching to Lady Gaga's "Telephone." He wrote that he exploited "a perfect storm" of military computer vulnerability: "weak servers, weak logging, weak physical security, weak counterintelligence, inattentive signal analysis."

The Bradley Manning story is particularly galling because he's a 96B Army intel analyst, my old job. That means he held a TS/SCI (top secret with access to sensitive compartmentalized information) clearance, as I did. He was given a grave trust and responsibility by the Army, as I was. As an intel troop, it was Manning's duty, as it was mine, to protect the information to which he had access.

Manning says he exploited weaknesses? The traitor Bradley Manning was the weakness he exploited. He betrayed his trust and shamed 96Bs and the Army intelligence community. A harsh example should be made of him.

21AUG13 postscript: Manning sentenced.

Harsh - like death. Traitors cannot be molly-coddled and put into prison. At time of war, traitors must be executed.

Bradley took an Oath to defend and protect this country.

Bradley is a Traitor and should go before a military court.

There is no reading between the lines.

Bradley Manning is an American Patriot to the first degree. He has exposed the war crimes of murdering soldiers and has paid a terrible price for it. It's not like he has profited by doing the right thing, quite the opposite in fact. He's a hero, not a traitor.

Manning committed espionage during wartime...make him the first traitor executed since the Rosenbergs. Or at least take him out of solitary confinement so he can get the ass-whoopin' he deserves. He's a gutless coward.
