Why not? After all our Dear Leader promised to have the most transparent administration in the history of the Republic.

No doubt Manning thought adopting the name “Chelsea” and trying to be a woman would compel a Democrat to grant a pardon. We will see. Oddly, Manning’s lawyer is still using the pronoun “him.” Must not be an ABA member.

I predict the President will just ignore this. He is under no obligation even to acknowledge its receipt, much less reply. Manning is not a whistleblower, he just likes to claim he is. Diplomats are entitled to candid evaluations of situations. Transparency in such internal communications is a vice, not a virtue.
Too bad Clinton wasn’t paying attention when he pardoned Marc Rich. Unbelievably stupid move for a Rhodes scholar.

I don’t think that word means what you think it means. Manning revealed all sorts of lies that had been told by our Government. Sounds like a whistleblower to me.
