Pfc Bradley Manning was arrested in May on suspicion of leaking a video of a U.S. helicopter attack. Based in Iraq, he rapidly became the main suspect for the WikiLeak data dump.
Openly gay, despite the then-existing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy that allowed him to remain in the Army, Manning had experienced rejection by a homosexual lover, declaring on his Facebook page that he was “livid” after being “lectured by ex-boyfriend.”
When you’re twenty-two years old, astonishingly immature, and “frustrated with people and society at large”, does that give you permission to betray your nation?
It took just one Bradley Manning to think the rules of conduct, let alone his oath of service, could and should be set aside as a balm for his hurt feelings because his boyfriend dumped him.
This is why the armed forces resisted Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell when it was first foisted on them. From long experience, both military and civilian intelligence personnel knew and understood that homosexuals were particularly vulnerable to blackmail and, even as attitudes changed toward the gay and lesbian population, their emotional stability remained open to question.
It is why today’s frontline Marines in combat do not want to rely on homosexuals in their units, but the military has become so politically correct over the years that even an unstable Muslim Army major was allowed to serve until he killed thirteen servicemen and women at Fort Hood. There is no one more dangerous to our nation’s survival than a traitor.
Bradley Manning is every warning against permitting gays and lesbians to serve in the military writ large.

Holy Crap you people are persistent with your gay hate. SOOOO NOW 1...1 person of 2.5 million is example of why discrimination should be upheld...get fucking real. Think before you post ridiculous stuff. The other 2,499,999 troops are all so perfect and oath abiding I'm sure. Read prior posts from me. You also have the preconception that all gays are little frail emotional people...well if that stands then why are women even allowed, they are frail and emotional 25% of the time guaranteed. Punch yourself in the nose dummy you deserve it.

Let me start of by saying I do not hate gays nor do I have a problem with them serving openly as long as they follow the rules, what ever they will be. However, with the average age of today's military being 19-21, I am concerned if you mix a little booze with the combat mind it can turn hostile real quick. I foresee a lot of incidents occurring in the barracks and that will make a unit hit rock bottom and cause isolation towards those who are open which will hurt esprit de corp. Being isolated is not the feeling you want or need in a combat environment.
I am also upset that military members were not asked for any input at the base level. They posted a survey buried in the middle of each branches homepage forums; who even reads their branches forums. Second, they never provided feedback on what was said in those forum surveys I believe they were quite surprised and decided to save face. Then again, we are government property and they tell us what to think more often than not. Bottom line, I believe this is another desperate act for Obama to save his own ass for the election and distract everyone from the current economic issue which he has no plan for.
