    I know this is not much of an issue to some but I just found out that Private Bradford Manning, the 22 year old that released all of those documents on the war to Wikileak was Gay. I can't find any stories that state this fact but Fox News this morning let it slip.

    Shades of Columbine folks.


    I wonder why the media felt they needed to hide this?

    Did they intentionally hide this or did the media feel it wasn't important?


    What this kid did will only set a bad example to other disgruntled soldiers. Soldiers that feel disgruntled for one reason or another.....and being a closet gay in the military is one reason to be disgruntled because of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy in the military.

    Is the military full of PFC Mannings waiting to voice not only their displeasure for the war but the military's anti-Gay policies?

    Here is an example of one in particular: The Heroism of PFC Bradley Manning | CommonDreams.org

    So?

    And BTW...Go Bradley Manning...not because he's a homo but because of making sure there's a little transparency in the corrupt government and military industrial complex.

    I don't care if he's gay. He should be court martialed for treason then shot.

    I'm not surprised that the Lame Stream Media would try not to report he is Gay. That might just hurt their pro-gay military agenda.

    I actually don't care if he is gay or the Queen of Sheba. He should be locked up for the rest of eternity. Become a non person even.

    Hey, dumbass: The "transparency" you're mindlessly cheerleading is going to get people killed.

    Not that you give a shit.

    if he committed treason, his being gay had nothing to do with it....and he should be punished appropriately.

    why is his being gay relevant?

    as for columbine, they were a couple of nazi-loving freaks. so the point?
