    Maybe the poster is a fascist.  Maybe he's just a good guesser.  At any rate, Manning does in fact "seem to be guilty of something".

    Shortly before Manning took the stand Thursday, the judge accepted terms that could allow him to plead guilty to the lesser charges. Manning would accept responsibility for providing classified material to WikiLeaks in exchange for a maximum term of 16 years in prison.

    One piece of free advice to the GOP: Drop the culture wars, explicitly.

    •  I never meant to imply aoeu is a fascist, BTW (0+ / 0-)

      I'm not sure if it was clear in my original comment -- I wasn't being sarcastic, or trying to attack aoeu.  We're all on the same side 95% of the time, so I don't feel a raging need to alienate fellow Kossacks or assume the worst about anyone without proof.  

      Or maybe it was clear that I wasn't attacking, in which case, never mind.  /Litella

      in history decided that pleading out for a lighter sentence when the President of the United States has utterly destroyed any chance they had of a fair trial is the smart thing to do, whether or not they're guilty.

      When the CIC has publicly instructed the Military Tribunal you'll be facing that you are guilty, you're not going to win.
