255.6 - To Barack Obama: Pardon Chelsea Manning!

To Barack Obama: Pardon Chelsea Manning!

As a Footnote to that, I want to make clear what I have said before: I regard Chelsea Manning as an American hero who in the best tradition of the honorable practice of conscientious whistle-blowing, saw the public being lied to and took steps to let us know what we have a right to know.

There is a tradition that at the end of their terms in office, presidents issue pardons.

So, Barack Obama:
prove yourself the lover of peace you claim to be;
prove your commitment to the transparency you - so far falsely - claimed would be a hallmark of your administration;
stand for the justice in which you say you believe;
and pardon Chelsea Manning!
