According to the New York Times, Obama has commuted all but four months of Chelsea Manning’s remaining prison sentence. Manning is the former army intelligence analyst who leaked evidence of US war crimes and other illegal and corrupt activities to Wikileaks in 2010.  Her 35 year sentence was the longest sentence ever imposed for a leak conviction. She has been in prison for seven years. Manning is now set to be freed on May 17, 2017.

    Chelsea was not pardoned.. her sentence was only reduced.. so no need for Assange to surrender as promised.

    Well, Obama trying to present himself as “mild”?! The victims Families of his war policy wouldn´t laugh about this! And the whole Manning affair smells from MKULTRA. They feared the Hero Manning, so they transmuted him into a Girl, much more difficult to be accepted by many People as a hero! Poor guy!
