He’s a “He”

Chelsea Manning’s 35 year sentencing for providing classified U.S. intel to Wikileaks was commuted by President Obama today. Manning has served 7 years of her sentencing and will now be released on May 17 of 2017.

At the time of her conviction, Manning went by the first name “Bradley” and identified as a male. The former Army intelligence officer announced she was transgender the day after her sentencing.

The U.S. Army approved hormone therapy for Chelsea Manning in February of 2015.

Since her announcement and the approval for therapy drugs made by the U.S. Army following, Manning still claims she’s not been able to get the treatment she needs.

“The bottom-line is this: I need help and I am still not getting it. I am living through a cycle of anxiety, anger, hopelessness, loss, and depression. I cannot focus. I cannot sleep. I attempted to take my own life,” she wrote.

I’m not sure what’s changed since Manning applied for a Presidential pardon three years ago (other than the obvious), but this seems like a statement move by the Obama Administration.

Manning gave 700,000 military files and diplomatic cables to Wikileaks in 2010. Many public figures have consistently come to her defense, including Congressman Ron Paul, who tweeted today:

Edward Snowden has also repeatedly spoken out on Chelsea Manning’s behalf.
