Change the Story

First Manning is looking at 100+ years in prison, then he makes a statement (out of the blue), now the sentence is 35 years with a chance of being pardoned by Obama. You do the math. Manning has to earn the pardon by playing their game. They can't kill him, but they can kill his image.

It is very important for TPTB to threaten those in the military with this treatment, so that everyone is afraid to blow the whistle. It is so transparent and idiotic that I have to wonder "Do they really think anybody is buying this crap"?
