Now this sick, confused bastard, who broke the law and endangered the lives of millions by leaking 700,000 classified files for all the world to see (because he was angry at the old Bill Clinton "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy) wants President Obama to sign off on getting hormone therapy so he can be a "woman":
RELATED: Bradley Manning wants to live as 'Chelsea.' Will prison go along? (+video)A day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison, Army Pfc. Bradley Manning announced in a statement to "Today" that she identifies as female and wants to be known as Chelsea Manning."I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition. I also request that, starting today, you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun (except in official mail to the confinement facility). I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back," said Manning.On Tuesday, David Coombs, Manning's attorney, called on President Obama to pardon Manning or commute her sentence to time served. It was unclear whether Manning identifying as female would change the location of her imprisonment.During his trial, Manning's attorneys presented evidence that their client struggled with gender identity disorder, a strong feeling of being trapped in the body of the opposite gender. They presented evidence of Manning's struggle that included a picture of the private in a blond wig and lipstick (above).Manning had argued in court that he was trying to inform the public about military and government wrongdoing when he supplied WikiLeaks with more than 700,000 pages of classified information in 2010, and did not intend to aid the enemy.
