Army Pvt. Bradley Manning has apologized for leaking sensitive documents about the U.S. war in Iraq to the Web site WikiLeaks. At his court martial, the former army intelligence analyst said his actions hurt the U.S. Norah O'Donnell reports.

FORT MEADE, MD.Bradley Manning plans to live as a woman named Chelsea and wants to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible, the soldier said Thursday, a day after being sentenced to 35 years in prison for sending classified material to WikiLeaks.

Manning announced the decision in a written statement provided to NBC's "Today" show, asking supporters to refer to him by his new name and the feminine pronoun. The statement was signed "Chelsea E. Manning."

Manning's defense attorney David Coombs told "Today" in an interview that he is hoping officials at the military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kan., will accommodate Manning's request for hormone therapy. [...]

This is him article-wikileaks-0814.jpg

He says his gender struggles in a hostile environment forced him to leak.

Cause he wanted attention and to be liked, I presume.

Why the #### did he join the army in the first place?


who is going to foot the bill for the hormone therapy??

Not the fed. So, no one.

He joined in order to be surrounded by fit young males I guess. 

If he will pay for the therapy himself, fine. I don't give a flying **.

It's very odd, but I am sure he didn't just 'decide' he was more female than male because of the prison system. He wouldn't get away with it if he did, gender reassignment is not just undertaken because someone says one day they would like to be of the opposite sex.


Refusing to use the spellchick!
