Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning
The Bureau of Prisons has rejected the Army’s request to accept the transfer of national security leaker Pvt. Chelsea Manning from the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, to a civilian facility where she could get better treatment for her gender-identify condition. The military will instead begin the initial treatment for her.
Army Pvt. Bradley Manning is seeking a presidential pardon for leaking reams of classified information that his lawyer says did not merit protection.
