Bradley Manning Charges Dropped; Soldier Exploits Loophole in UCMJ

When accused of leaking over 250,000 classified documents to a foreign national,
Manning coolly rebutted that his actions were in protest against Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. When told that his behavior in Iraq was illegal, Manning retorted that it was no more illegal than the American invasion. At one point Manning began emulating Major Nidal Hasan and grew a beard. The final straw, according to observers, was when Manning married his cellmate and sued for federal benefits and Basic Allowance for Housing. -- The Duffel Blog

It had me going all the way up to "married his cellmate." Thing is, you can scarcely tell what is parody and what is real anymore

Hero? How would you like it if you had a loved one in a confidential witness protection program, and a low level functionary with an axe to grind on the police department released their name to the general public? Not a hero, simply self serving.
