Jeeze Louise, this is FUBAR. I am waiting for this to be turned into a SitCom.

Are you fucking KIDDING ME?!

From the article

Of course, applying for clemency or parole doesn’t ensure getting it. But there is another card up Manning’s sleeve. According to Section 3-2.a(4), the Army Clemency and Parole Board may consider, among other criteria, the prisoner’s “psychological profile” and “medical condition,” including “the prisoner’s need for specialized treatment.” (Italics added.)

In a statement released Thursday, Manning—who has a long and well-documented history of confused gender identity—came out as female, asked to be addressed as Chelsea instead of Bradley, and requested hormone treatments while in the Army prison at Ft. Leavenworth, Kan. Army spokesmen have said they are under no obligation to supply such treatments.

If the wardens at Ft. Leavenworth take the same position, a case could be made that incarceration would violate “the prisoner’s need for specialized treatment” and that, therefore, Manning should immediately be granted clemency. (Recall: Under Army regulations, Manning is eligible to apply for clemency now.)

All I can say to Brad or Chelsea or whatever the fuck it wants to be called is to get ready for a long wait.

Truth is indeed stranger than fiction in this instance, no one could have come up with this story line except maybe that freak Quenton Tarantino.
