The traitor Bradley Manning
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.
