Alright I know I might have been out of the hardcore conspiracy loop for a while. But I think i have been trained well enough to see through globalist/CIA tactic's. And right when I saw this story of Bradley Manning wanting a sex change. I just had this switch go on in my head that they did something to him. In their torturing of him. I mean that would be the perfect spin to put on him that this courageous whistle blower (regardless of the fact if you think he is a traitor or not you have to admit it takes courage to do what he did.) now is concerned with being a woman and wanting a gender change. But does that make sense to anyone that someone who is facing serious charges like these, there most pressing concern and what they want the world to know is that they want to be a woman???

I mean maybe I am wrong I probably am wrong and the military did nothing to him and he was treated in the best way.

But is it that far off the mark that this country the United states which is the world leader in propaganda could spin this type of story??

Im beginning to wonder if, during that 2 years that we basically heard nothing from him, they put him through some serious mind bending techniques which made him believe that he wants to be a girl.
Like you said, the guy comes out of one of the biggest trials in the US, for espionage, being labeled a traitor and his first and foremost thought is to start taking hormones?

Somethings rotten in Denmark

Its well known and documented that Bradley manning has wanted to be a woman for many years. So i guess your 'training' in globalist/CIA tactic's must be a bit off.

No one should be concerned with his gender identity crisis , the more important issue is that a whistle blower is being imprisoned for exposing war crimes in a democratic country.

I don't know if he was 'tampered with' but his gender change reminds me of English MI5 whistle blower David Shayler who seemed to go totally mad and now lives as a woman called 'Dolores Kane'.

It could also just be a clever ruse by Manning himself to stay out of dude's prison where he will likely be treated quite harshly as a perceived "traitor".
Bigger question in my eyes is how EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD is a conspiracy to some folks...I find this strange.

No, but he will be tampered with in prison.

I didnt hear anything at all about him wanting to be called a woman, until after (or maybe towards the end) of the trial.
Could be wrong though

Well, consider what's happened so far.

"He also describes the experience of being stripped naked at night and made to stand for parade in the nude, a condition that continues to this day. "The guard told me to stand at parade rest, with my hands behind my back and my legs spaced shoulder-width apart. I stood at parade rest for about three minutes … The [brig supervisor] and the other guards walked past my cell. He looked at me, paused for a moment, then continued to the next cell. I was incredibly embarrassed at having all these people stare at me naked"

www.theguardian.com...

Also, read this about sexual humiliation techniques used at Gitmo. Bold letters added by me.

"Detainees in US custody in Abu Ghraib, Kandahar and Bagram (where many were taken to before Guantanamo) have reported being sodomised with broomsticks, a ‘chemical light’ or rifles. Other forms of sexual humiliation reported have been; parading men naked in front of female soldiers, forcing them to wear women’s underwear and dance with other men, forcing them to undress in front of female interrogators and guards, touching their genitals or provoking them in a ‘humiliating’ way and forcing them to watch pornography. Most detainees in U.S. custody have alleged that they were either raped, threatened with rape, or anally probed. Sexual violence is a war crime. Sexual humiliation is used to induce feelings of humiliation and fear."

This is stuff that could mess any one up. Or it could be he's had these deep issues for awhile he just was hiding them, and now that he's got nothing to lose, he's coming out. Who knows.

This 2 years old from 2011 siting another artical in 2010 :


Why does the media still refer to “Bradley” Manning? The Curious Silence Around a Transgender Hero

One of the most persistent threads throughout the two years of imprisonment of accused Wikileaks leaker Private Bradley Manning has been the rumour that he is in fact, she–a transgender woman. Manning faces thirty charges, one of which “aiding the enemy” potentially carries the death penalty (though life in prison is more likely) for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents via the website Wikileaks including the shocking “Collateral Murder” video. Dismissed by many as a smear or simply irrelevant to the case, this transgender story has nevertheless refused to die.
In June 2010, Wired published excerpted chat logs between Manning and hacker Adrian Lamo that suggested that Manning considered herself female. Manning states quite clearly:

“ I wouldn’t mind going to prison for the rest of my life, or being executed so much, if it wasn’t for the possibility of having pictures of me… plastered all over the world press… as boy…”

Getting sodomized with broomsticks reminds you of college? Seriously? Was that like S&M Hogwarts University or something? C'mon, this is serious stuff.

Okay I dont know Bradley manning's documented history. But lets says that he has always wanted to be a woman. I dont know the know the future. but the best case scenario for him is a long time in prison worst case scenario is not a long life anywhere. and granted that what we hear abouyt prison life may be sensationalized bt tv and media perception but that is the last thing you would want people to know. is that you want to be a woman If your thinking you going to prison for a while
