Chelsea Manning released from military prison

Chelsea Manning released from military prison

There's so much wrong with this, I don't know where to begin.

In a statement to ABC News, Manning said: "I appreciate the wonderful support that I have received from so many people across the world over these past years".

"I'm figuring things out right now-which is exciting, awkward, fun, and all new for me", she added.

In one of his final acts before leaving office in January, then-US President Barack Obama commuted Manning's 35-year prison sentence.

Manning announced after her conviction that she was in fact a woman. "I can imagine surviving and living as the person who I am and can finally be in the outside world". Her representatives allege that she was subjected to violence in prison and that she was mistreated by the military, which forced her to serve her sentence in an all-male prison. "My spirits were lifted in dark times, reading of their support, sharing in their triumphs, and helping them through challenges of their own". Her mother, Susan Fox was a habitual drunk when she was still pregnant with Manning. However, she apparently felt she owed it not only to herself but to the public as well.

She attempted to take her life twice past year and also conducted a hunger strike.

She acknowledged leaking the files while working in Iraq, but protested that she had acted to raise awareness of the impact of usa military action on innocent civilians.

In the video, two American helicopters fired upon a group of 10 men. But Obama said she had served a "tough sentence". Two war correspondents working for Reuters were killed in the first attack and during the second, two Iraqi children, aged 6 and 9, were seriously wounded.

Manning's leak made WikiLeaks an internationally known entity and brought to light classified information pertaining to the Iraq War.

February 23, 2012: Manning declines to enter a plea to 22 charges, including aiding the enemy, at an arraignment at Fort Meade near Baltimore.

WA wages growth lowest on record
Wage growth in the mining sector continues to decelerate with annual wage falling to 0.6 percent year-on-year. Inflation rose 0.5 per cent in the March quarter, lifting the annual rate to 2.1 per cent.

Chase Strangio, staff attorney with the ACLU, had the following reaction: "It is incredible to witness Chelsea Manning's freedom after having seen and worked with her behind bars for four years". Manning's representatives have declined interview requests.

"This is an important victory for Chelsea, who has been mistreated by the government for years". The Associated Press has not confirmed these reports.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, a target of criminal investigations in Sweden and the United States, has promised to accept extradition if Manning was freed. Manning was sentenced to 35 years in jail. "People need to take responsibility for their actions". Decision: I plan on moving back to Maryland this summer.

Manning said in 2014 that she chose to disclose the classified information to expose truths about the civil war "out of a love for my country".

Department of Defense and Army policy also restricts political activities by all members of the armed forces, including Manning, until their service time is completed.

Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who is friends with Manning and also played a role in publishing leaks from famous whistleblower Edward Snowden, tells the BBC that Manning will likely face a number of challenges now that she's out of prison.

She walked out of prison still on active duty with the U.S. military, because soldiers serving out prison terms are still considered to be active duty, but most experts suspect she will be dishonorably discharged before the end of the week.

March 2, 2011: The government files 22 new counts against Manning, including the charge of aiding the enemy - a crime that could carry the death penalty.

"Presenting myself in the gender that I am is about my right to exist", she said.
