Gee, I guess we know what some of Mannings “issues” are.
The suspect in the leaking of classified military files, Spc. Bradley Manning, voiced his disgust with US Army commanders and U.S. “society at large” on his Facebook page just prior to his alleged downloading of thousands of secret documents, according to the British news media.
According to one story appearing in Britain’s The Telegraph, Manning, who served as a US Army intelligence analyst, became depressed after a break-up with his homosexual campanion. He also wrote: “Bradley Manning is not a piece of equipment,” and quoted a joke about “military intelligence” being an oxymoron.
Manning, who is openly homosexual, began his gloomy postings on January 12, saying: “Bradley Manning didn’t want this fight. Too much to lose, too fast.”
The 22-year old Manning is awaiting court martial as the primary suspect in the leaking of more than 90,000 secret documents to Wikileak.org creator Julian Assang, who in turn posted the documents on his web site. The secret documents subsequently appeared in major U.S. newspapers in a security breach which Pentagon officials say has endangered the lives of serving Soldiers and Afghan civilians.
Pentagon investigators plan to delve into Manning’s background to ascertain if they missed any warnings when he applied to join the US Army. According to The Telegraph, in May 2010, when he was serving at a US military base near Baghdad, he changed his status to: “Bradley Manning is now left with the sinking feeling that he doesn’t have anything left.”
Five days later, according to the Telegraph story, he said he was “livid” after being “lectured by ex-boyfriend”, then later the same day said he was “not a piece of equipment” and was “beyond frustrated with people and society at large”.
Let me get this straight. This fucking little peurile, angst-filled drama queen, had his panties in a bunch over an ex-boyfriend and life in general, so he decided to act out by leaking over 90,000 classifed documents to a hostile leftwing “whistleblower” site.
Just doing his part for “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
Oh by the way, Bradley: That “sinking feeling” you have is an 8×10 cell waiting for you in the basement of Leavenworth federal prison.
