This guy should be court martialed, drawn, quartered, hanged, shot, and sent to the Russian Front !

Or are you Dems & libs going to claim that him being gay is an absolute defense against the charges ?

I don't agree with this one, I understand while some see him as a hero, I don't. There is no way with the amount of information he leaked that he could know one way or the other if any of that information could have put other military personnel in danger.

This is a REAL disgrace, btw, naming him grand marshal. But nothing the loony Left does in the People's Demokratik Republik Of Kalifornia surprises me.

I just read that they rescinded this honor. He is NOT going to be the grand marshal. He SHOULD be executed.

It's obvious Foxy has never heard of whistleblowers. There are even laws protecting whistleblowers in the USA: http://www.whistleblowers.gov/

It's a serious ethical lapse, in my opinion, that military personnel are not covered by whisteblower laws too. Whistleblowers are an important part of the checks and balances that society needs to catch and correct wrongdoing.

We're at war? With who?

If you mean the war on "terror", just where is that war being fought? You cannot be at war with a concept. That's like being at war with dandruff. It will never stop.

It is the "1984" war that never ended, only kept going to keep the people quiet.

We're at war with Radical Islam. And I've lost a family member in this war.

I'm sorry about that. Really sorry.

BUT war with Radical Islam? That is not war, but a constant squabble. How can you win a war on radical behavior? That is like the so called War on Drugs. Not winnable at all, but easy to loose.

The military does protect whistleblowers, but that isn't what he did.

Not just whistleblowing, but war crimes. Supposedly, the US military has an "honour code" about the duty to disobey an unlawful order. But like anything else in the US, rules are only followed when convenient. When cheap oil and cheap imports are at stake, human rights and personal freedoms are extraneous.

Anyone who tries to justify and rationalize the illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan should be forced into uniform and sent there. If shitheads like Fux-Face really believe what they say, they should live up to it.

You should include the Libertarians and Tea Party as well, we also like what he did.

Foxy, if a soldier in any other country (North Korea, for instance) had leaked evidence of war crimes committed by their own country, you and your buddies at Fox News would be hailing that soldier as a hero and screaming to high heaven if that soldier was punished for whistleblowing.

It's no different when the soldier was one of your own, and the country that committed war crimes was yours.

A country's ethical reputation is based on how ethically it actually acts -- not on how ethical it claims to be. Committing war crimes, and covering it up, is not ethical.

Guys, if he had forwarded the docs to the Senate Oversight Committee and/or the White House THAT would have been "whistleblowing".

This was NOT.

So when you know that the higher ups are involved in the cover up why would you think it logical to report the wrongdoing to those very higher ups?

Manning tried to give the evidence to both the New York Times and the Washington Post but neither of those traditional news media bothered to show any interest. So Manning turned to Wikileaks which was set up specifically as a whistleblowing organization apart from any particular government or country.

All you've just done is elaborate on HOW he doesn't fall under whistleblower statutes.

So we should all bow down before him and hail him as a great hero and give him honors such as being grand marshal of one of the gay pride parades. I don't think so.

Maybe he can bunk with John Walker Lindh.
