During the Barack Obama regime, all information leaks were equal. Of course, some of those leaks were more equal than others.
Russian hacks? Bad. DNC hacks? Bad. Hacks which place our troops in danger? All good, baby!
President Obama commuted all but four months of the remaining prison sentence of Chelsea Manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of a 2010 leak that revealed American military and diplomatic activities across the world, disrupted his administration and brought global prominence to WikiLeaks, the recipient of those disclosures.
The decision by Mr. Obama rescued Ms. Manning, who twice tried to kill herself last year, from an uncertain future as a transgender woman incarcerated at the men’s military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. She has been jailed for nearly seven years, and her 35-year sentence was by far the longest punishment ever imposed in the United States for a leak conviction.
That is because
she it is a traitor of the first order, and deserves to spend three decades in federal pound-you-in-the-ass prison? But wait, there’s more!
In addition, Mr. Obama on Tuesday commuted the sentence of Oscar Lopez Rivera, who was part of a Puerto Rican nationalist group that carried out a string of bombings in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
So Barry is ending his presidency in the way in which it began: surrounded by traitors and terrorists.
