I hope the twerp is sentenced to the maximum sentence permitted by law.

He took and oath and he knowingly violated it, knowing full well, what the possible consequences might be. Well, now accept the consequences of your actions.

Pfc Manning's sexual orientation has nothing to do with the treasonous choices he made. It should not be taken into consideration one way or the other; nor should his age, gender, race, color, creed, religious affiliation, socio-economic status, or any other personal factor be taken into account.

This is what true equality demands.

No more so than heterosexuals.

Bush and Cheney should be tried internationally for war crimes against humanity
I absolutely agree with you.

However, that has nothing to do with what Pfc Manning did. In leaking information to Wikileaks, he created security problems for this country, potentially putting us all at risk. At the same time, his actions accomplished nothing toward making Bush and Cheney accountable; Manning only made a bad situation worse.

Why is this even posted in this forum ?!

In the future, are we going to see stories about ANY criminal who coincidentally happens to be gay posted here ?

LGBT people are like everyone else (isn't that what we are fighting about ?), we have good gay people, bad gay people, short gay people, tall gay people, and CRIMINAL people who happen to be gay. We should celebrate this ?!

I hope this criminal is sentenced to 3000 years in prison, or in lieu of that, whatever the maximum sentence permitted by law is. He's not dumb. Being gay is not an excuse, nor reason, for his criminal activity. He made a choice to break the law, apparently betting that he wouldn't be caught. He lost his bet. He was caught. Now he must pay the price and accept the consequences for his conscious decision.

MORE THAN 99% of Americans NEVER break the law in their lifetime, and they consciously make that choice. Why make excuses, and coddle the less than 1% of those who choose to break the law ?

Perhaps he could have hijacked a plane and flown it into the tallest building in New York, after mailing letters to all the major newspapers and television stations? I guarantee you the whole world would have paid attention.

Sorry, I usually agree with you, but on this particular subject we're on opposite sides of the fence. Heroes don't commit crimes to draw attention to other crimes, and they never endanger other people.

George Washington didn't think that about General Pulaski.

Kazimierz Micha&#322; Wac&#322;aw Wiktor Pu&#322;aski of &#346;lepowron ; English: Casimir Pulaski; March 6, 1745[1]– October 11, 1779) was a Polish nobleman, soldier and military commander who has been called "the father of American cavalry".

Born in Warsaw and following in his father's footsteps he became interested in politics at an early age and soon became involved in the military and the revolutionary affairs in Poland at that time. He never married, and had no descendants. Despite his fame, there have been uncertainties and controversies surrounding both his place and date of birth and burial until recently.

Pulaski was one of the leading military commanders for the Bar Confederation and fought against Russian domination of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. When this uprising failed, he was driven into exile. Following a recommendation by Benjamin Franklin, Pulaski emigrated to North America to help in the cause of the American Revolutionary War.

He distinguished himself throughout the revolution, most notably when he saved the life of George Washington. Pulaski became a general in the Continental Army, and created the Pulaski Cavalry Legion and reformed the American cavalry as a whole. At the Battle of Savannah, while leading a daring charge against British forces, he was wounded, and died shortly thereafter.

Bet you didn't know that a gay man helped us win that war!

Well since we now are almost real citizens don't you think we need to start acting like it and address issues other than you drag boyfriends and 3 legged cat?

Thing is the COurt Marshal determined he had NOT put lives in danger. But he did violate security laws and yes he deserves to be punished for that.

I posted a mistake about the KY lesbians story. As a Christian when I lie I have to repent that lie.

KY does not have a civil union law as I claimed.
