What a great way to end the day, seeing this pardon.  Having attended Mannings trial and seeing how fragile Chelsea was..this brought tears to my eyes. This is a great thing Obama is doing.  The American taxpayers should be grateful to Manning for exposing the criminal behavior of some military through the released movie “Collateral Damage” that went viral on the Internet. Chelsea risked her life giving documents to WikiLeaks in order that we would know what was going on behind the scenes.   The message, when our government sent Manning to prison, was that it’s ok to be a whistleblower on a company… but not the government.
