Charges Facing Manning

Bradley Manning - Queer, Traitor, DoomedUS Army Pfc. Bradley Manning is facing serious charges because of his traitorous release of large amounts of classified material. He he is charged with three (3) separate crimes under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The most serious of these crimes is breaching Article 104 – Aiding The Enemy, which is a capital offense.

He is also charged under Article 92 – Failure to Obey Order or Regulation and Article 134 – General Article. The latter is a catch-all for improper behavior by military personnel that isn’t specifically covered by other Articles under UCMJ.

In all, with the original charges and the recent additional charges, Manning is facing 34 Specifications – very close to what are called “counts” in the civilian courts – between the three (3) charges.

  1. Article 104 – Aiding The Enemy (1 Specification)
  2. Article 92 – Failure to Obey Order or Regulation (9 Specifications)
  3. Article 134 – General Article (24 Specifications)

Article 104 carries the death penalty or any other legal punishment that the court-martial or military commission decrees. Both Articles 92 and 134 allow for any legal punishment short of execution that the court-martial or military commission decrees.

It is reported that the prosecution will not seek the death penalty under Article 104, seeking life imprisonment instead. Under UCMJ however, the convening authority, not the prosecution, has the final decision as to whether or not to impose the death penalty. This combined with the broad latitude in sentencing allowed to the court-martial or military commission which will hear the case makes it anyone’s guess what will happen.

My guess it that about 10 of the specifications under Articles 92 and 134 will be dropped due to redundancy and lack of evidence and that, at the end of the day, Manning will be sentenced to a Bad Conduct Discharge and Incarceration for Life + 69 years (3 years / specification).

Poor Little Manning

Bradley Manning - Queer, Traitor, DoomedPoor little Bradley Manning, he’s been held in solitary confinement in various military stockades for around seen months while awaiting trial on high crimes against the United States of America and it’s reported that he’s not fairing especially well in captivity.

Various groups of America’s enemies, both foreign and domestic, are not happy with this.

Since Manning has never denied his actions his guilt is not in any form of doubt. He made various statements that showed he was proud of his treason and happy that he provided aid and comfort to the Muslim terrorists we’re fighting and to their various supporters and shills within the Civilized World.

Therefor I say let the filthy traitor rot in solitary until he breaks apart, then try him and execute him, preferably by being hanged by the neck until dead, then dump his corpse in a landfill with the rest of the trash.

Alternatively, the US Military could, once Manning has provided the evidence we need against Assange and Wikileaks, make the appearance of bowing to the whims of the Liberals and other terrorist supporters and release the little freak, Manning into the general population of the stockade he’s being held in.

At a bare minimum this would be a strike at Assange and Wikileaks of the sort that would certainly quell their access to enemy collaborators.

It might also serve as a good and pointed foreshadowing of their personal futures or the lack thereof.

Manning is young, queer, weak, and a traitor. I’m sure his fellow military inmates will do for him in short order, and they’ll do far better, cheaper, and messier job of it than the overly sterile executions our government allows itself. 😉

Poor little Manning – damned if we do and damned if we don’t. Either way he’ll pay for his anti-American evil with his life.
