Traitor Bradley Manning Freed by Barack Obama

Yesterday, Barack Obama commuted Bradley Manning’s 35 year sentence for disclosing the largest cache of classified military secrets in American history. So serious and far reaching was Manning’s treason that prosecutors were contemplating the death penalty. But Manning pleaded down and death was no longer an option.

Most pundits are baffled by Obama’s commutation of Manning’s sentence.

I think it’s fairly obvious.

As Obama leaves office, he understands that his legacy is being consigned to the ash heap of history: Obamacare is as good as gone, the deal with Iran is going to be rewritten, America’s relationship with Israel is already on the mend reversing Obama’s Jew-hating agenda. Trump will obliterate Obama’s regulatory war against oil, coal, and natural gas. Immigration laws will once again be enforced. Gitmo is still operational and the Trump military will make good use of the facility. And most consequential, Trump will halt the leftist tilt of the Supreme Court with as many as two possibly three Conservative nominations.

What remains of Obama’s legacy is same sex marriage and the order to integrate transgender soldiers into America’s armed forces.

Bradley Manning is a traitor. But because he is transgender he ranks unusually high on the progressive curve of victimology.

Obama believes that he will be a hero to the transgendered by commuting Manning’s sentence, thus preserving his shrinking legacy.

I, on the other hand, have more faith in the transgender community. I believe they are as patriotic as the rest of us. They, like most Americans, view Manning as an infamous traitor. They will see through Obama’s cynical ploy and hold him in contempt.

Obama’s disgraceful decision sent shock waves through the intelligence community:

The decision — which a senior defense official told CNN was made over the objections of Secretary of Defense Ash Carter — immediately touched off a controversy in the closing days of the Obama administration.

A former intelligence official described being “shocked” to learn of Obama’s decision, adding that the “entire intelligence community is deflated by this inexplicable use of executive power.” The official said the move was “deeply hypocritical given Obama’s denunciation of WikiLeaks’ role in the hacking of the (Democratic National Committee).”

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Agree, agree! That’s exactly what I thought as well.

    You may think transgenders are as crazy as people who think they’re squirrels, but they are not stupid.

    I think Bradley Manning changed his sex for the same reason Ruth Snyder changed her religion. (Al Smith, the governor at the time of Snyder’s execution, was a Catholic.)

    Maybe the CIA will recognize that these new guys are serious. Of course, that would have to be the non-Valerie Plame division if there are any left. I have read “Legacy of Ashes” and it is depressing. Maybe they have successes we have never heard about. I certainly hope so. I have read the book by Reuel Marc Gerecht, written when he was still “unknown.” Bob Baer’s book is probably closer to reality. He asked for a linguist to take his place in Uzbekistan when he retired and they sent him an expert on sexual harassment.

    He still has time to give Manning (Womanning?) a Medal of Freedom, now that s/he’s a civilian again.

      Obama still has time to free Sirhan Sirhan and Charley Manson.

    Remember, to these guys (Obama, etc) there is no such thing as a traitor, just as there is no such thing as patriotism to them. All that matters to them is power and prestige. Why do you think they so love awards and useless medals (think participation and Nobel awards).

      Bingo — add to that the decline, or disappearance of the American Epoch, which had a pretty good run until the Obama administration came along.
