  •  Agreed, although I wouldn't use the phrase (0+ / 0-)

    "man enough" given that Manning sent some emails out early on suggesting some degree of gender identity issues.

    •  I laughed AND groaned at your comment, Rei.... (0+ / 0-)

      although, all kidding (politically correct or not) aside, I don't get the impression that Manning turned himself in.

      Which brings up an interesting scene:

      Sergeant: Colonel, half a million of our files just got posted on the internet!

      Colonel: Who did it?

      Sergeant: How the hell would we know?

      The point being that it seems inconceivable to me that the computer system wouldn't log any 'touch' of a classified file, identifying both the machine and individual user. Why are they having so damn much trouble proving who copied and published these documents? (well, I know why, and it doesn't say good things for our national security, does it?)

      Cheers.

    •  Thank you for making it clear why you (0+ / 0-)

      really spend so much time on Assange.

      •  Huh? (0+ / 0-)

        I'm confused.  What does Manning's gender identity have to do with whether or not Assange f* a sleeping girl to work around her refusal to consent to unprotected sex, and pinned down and tried to force sex with another?
