    Either those guards are giants or Manning is a hobbit.

    Wouldn`t it be a bad precedent to have no penalty for releasing millions of classified documents, a number which would indicate he had no idea what 99% of them were about? Olly olly oxen free for the US government.

    He deserves all 136 years. Throw the book at him and he should feel lucky it`s not a firing squad.

    I have absolutely no sympathy for him like other people seem to have. The simple fact is that he is enlisted in the military as an intel analyst and he knew the consequences for releasing classified information to the public. He`s a traitor so let him f*cking rot in prison.

    So when someone knows an atrocity is being made he should shut up to not hurt your country`s feelings? Fu`ck America.

    @ NNoamfer - You`re French, aren`t you you little cheese eating surrender monkey.

    No of course if someone sees an atrocity they should speak out. But only about the wrong being done. And then if they release 7 thousand classified documents they should be punished for treason.

    Calling this guy a whistle-blower is putting spin on a traitor. Troup movements. Strengths, codes, what else? He didn`t even read the stuff he was giving out so he doesn`t know how many dead soldiers he might be responsible for.

    "So when someone knows an atrocity is being made he should shut up to not hurt your country`s feelings?"

    That`s not the point, dumba$$. There are ways to legally get classified information released. All he had to do was drop hints which would lead to an investigation and the release of said information.

    Some of the sh*t he leaked had nothing to do with any "atrocity" and could have been used to compromise the safety of others. Those who have served in the military know that your primary concern is the well-being of your brothers/sisters in arms. He either didn`t get that memo or just didn`t care so he`s a f*cking traitor.

    "There are ways to legally get classified information released."
    You can report it to your congressman, who has a legal right to investigate.

    Excuse me, I didn`t know he released documents that endangered innocents (that`s what I`m assuming you said), I don`t know anything in the world, but have an eager desire to be involved. In any way, those collateral damage leaks were good IMO, disregarding all the other documents.

    About the legal ways of whistleblowing, I don`t know how trustworthy that is. I`m not so fully aware of how the legal system works, but if it came to revealing atrocities and only atrocities, I believe an illegal method is also good.

    And Gerry, I`m not French, but you came pretty close, I`m Genevois, though I wasn`t raised in Europe so this environment had little influence on me. I still hate America for many different reasons.

    Disregarding in a sense that I only view these kinds of leaks as good. Not that I ignore those other leaks or consider them less important.

    Look, how small he is competed to the other guys, but he`s the bravest one there! The "home of the brave" sure got it backwards, now it wants to lock its last brave up. The article even says this is to serve a warning for those who would release secret docs. Trying to scare people away from letting the truth be known. I say if you want to be brave, be like this guy. Expose the corruption in government, and bring in leverages to end it so we can all get back to being efficient.

    It`s like they`ve been driving 20 years on a flat tire, and now it`s on the rim.. time to bite the bullet and put the spare on.

    From what I`ve heard, this douchebag was a total f***up who should have been kicked out of the army long before he turned traitor. He deserves death by buttrape.

    So it`s ummmm...brave...to steal and possibly get people killed in the process of doing so?

    Brave is standing up and letting your voice be heard. Brave is telling the government to it`s face that it is doing something wrong.

    This? This is nothing more than a coward who could do neither of the above.

    Gerry1of1: Don`t prove your point by explaining why you disagree. Instead make sure you call the writer or other commenters every malicious name you can think of without knowing if they actually can be that.

    "But Representatives Mike Rogers of Michigan and C. A. Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Republican and Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, praised the verdict.

    “Justice has been served today,” they said in a statement. “Pfc. Manning harmed our national security, violated the public’s trust, and now stands convicted of multiple serious crimes.”"

    HAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHHHAAA HAHAHHAAAHAA.
    Oh those funny politicians. What? They were serious? But they are politicians...they betray our trust daily.

    @ Pilot, if you don`t want to be called an "idiot" then don`t make idiotic comments. There is nothing "brave" about treason. He didn`t pull anyone out of a burning home. He didn`t save kittens from a well. He copied secret information and gave it away....thousands of times.

    If he`s a brave man writing a wrong, then he would have stood up and challenged the action, not snuck around like a c ockroach trying to hide his actions. These are the acts of a coward.

    Gerry1of1: If a government is acting treasonous in the world, under a veil of a word like say, freedom; is it really an act of treason for someone to leak documents to the world so that prove that government really is acting treasonous, and that it`s veil of freedom is really a cover for it`s evil actions?

    What about Edward Snowden, did he commit an act of bravery? Or are you going to side with the government officials in your country that say he commited an act of treason?

    They say those who trade freedom for security deserve neither. Are you one of those traders?
