Clearly, I gave him too much credit. He's apparently content to live out the rest of his days in a gilded cage, grasping at any pathetic attempt to stay in the spotlight-of-disgrace.
Pray ask Gates/... directly how they reconcile the fact that the indiscriminate nature of Mannings collection and release of information were indisputably harmful and the the claimed absence of damage from them.
That one answers itself: they can't point to any actual damage, but anything that exposes US war criminals is bad, m'kay?
"Douchebag weasel" is a frame grab appropriate to people who decided on the school playground how to decide matters, and haven't updated their model since.
The ultimate algorithm (almost an oracle):
Douchebag / not douchebag.
Gates/the generals were commenting on the domestic damage of Manning's leaks.
I've just re-read the quotes and I don't see how they refer only to "domestic damage".
Manning will still be a convicted felon and traitor
No. Manning was never charged or tried for treason. She's a convicted felon, but in no way a traitor. More than one active duty general and Defense Secretary Robert Gates have admitted that her leaks caused no damage except to the reputations of war criminals.
Assange got something out of Obama for nothing.
What did Assange get? He's still stuck in his Ecuadorian mom's basement, and now he looks like a coward and a fraud.
Come on. Show of hands. Who thought Assange would really leave the embassy just for Chelsea Manning? He's holding out for that sweet Fox News money once Trump makes him an official member of the politburo. He's blond, so he might be Megyn Kelly's replacement.
I hope that was intended as a joke, but that stereotype was pretty crass.
You SJWs are always looking for a safe space. Well, buckle up, buttercup, because in two days you liberal snowflakes won't be able to tell us not to use racial stereotypes any more. He won, she lost. Get over it.
[did I fit in all the alt-right cliches? if I missed any, let me know and I'll try again.]
You have a plan should you get killed or otherwise be unable to provide the passwords. Where I work, in addition to there being more than one IT staff, all the passwords are safely locked away where the Dean can get at them, if needed. We make sure that even if we are all gone, whoever comes after can get access.
These days the university has policies to that effect but we did it before then because that is what you do. You have a disaster plan, and that plan includes what happens if you aren't around.
I'm half white, and half Japanese. Does that mean I'll get the job AND get paid more?
No, it means you'll get paid more, but spend the difference on anime pillows and Pocky.

So much for the meritocracy.
Here we go...
Doesn't that depend on the state she winds up living in?
Yes, I guess it does. She'll be able to re-register for voting rights in some states after two years and in Maine and Vermont immediately.
An authority is a person who can tell you more about something than you really care to know.
