Harvard makes convicted spy Chelsea Manning a 'fellow,' igniting firestorm

 

September 14, 2017

Fox News

 

Excerpt

 

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell on Thursday announced his resignation as a senior fellow at Harvard after the university named U.S. Army soldier-turned-convicted felon Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow.

 

Manning reacted to Morell's resignation with a one-word Tweet: "good."

 

Manning will take on the role at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, the school said on its website.

 

“She speaks on the social, technological and economic ramifications of Artificial Intelligence,” the Harvard announcement said. “As a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter.”

 

Morell, a former CIA deputy director who twice served as acting director, announced his resignation from Harvard's Belfer Center was a result of Manning's appointment, saying he couldn't be part of an organization "that honors convicted felon and leaker of classified information."

 

"Senior leaders in our military have stated publicly that the leaks by Ms. Manning put the lives of U.S. soldiers at risk," Morell said. "I have an obligation in my conscience -- and I believe to the country -- to stand against any efforts to justify leaks of sensitive national security information."

 

Many people were flabbergasted the university gave Manning the title, calling it “unbelievable” that a person convicted of espionage could be considered a “fellow.”

Chelsea Bradley Manning is a high-school graduate who was enlisted in the US Army.

 

If that plus being a gender-confused traitor qualifies a person to be a "fellow" at Hahvahd then they need to start printing their diplomas on rolls of charmin.

Obama released Bradley Manning as a last FU to our men and women in uniform. Little bastard wants to be a woman? Then string him up with a piano wire.

That would be a waste of piano wire.

 

Being originally a farm boy from Indiana, I'm SURE I could collect enough "Baling Wire". Because you can fix ANY 'situation' with enough baling wire and duct tape.

Piano wire, baling wire, twine... the bottom line is someone should not be above ground and breathing and Harvard is a fvking joke.

Former acting CIA Director Michael Morell on Thursday resigned from Harvard’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs to protest the appointment of convicted leaker Chelsea Manning to a fellowship at the university’s Kennedy School.

 

 

Good for him!

I am not going to say a thing about Manning's sex change. That is a choice made by that individual. But I will say how disgusted I am with Harvard for bestowing this honor on a person who has done NOTHING to deserve it.

Yup, they've reversed the decision. But no doubt only because of the backlash, not because they understand why it was wrong to begin with.

I read where Manning now claims to live in a Police State.

 

No, if you lived in a police state you'd be executed by now.

 

And your "I'm the victim, here" isn't working on me.

The victims are the people harmed when you sold information to the enemy.

I don't care if it has been withdrawn, that's still funny as all get out. :biglaugh:
