    PFC Manning had multiple avenues to report any bad acts and not compromise classified information.  In fact, because of his access to sensitive information he had MORE ways than the average soldier.  He passed on all of them.

    What he did he did for revenge and a need for attention.  Nothing more, nothing less.  

    It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee

      emotion interfering with your judgment.  When one ascertains, as BM appeared to do, that one's employer is in fact nefarious, it goes without saying that the channels for whistle-blowing operated by that same employer will not lead to resolution.  And I've never seen anything to suggest "revenge" as a motivation for the disclosure.  Revenge against whom?  For what?  

      Honestly, your need for a punching bag is so controlling here that you're simply making things up to justify your feelings.
