Private Bradley Manning, who was convicted of one of the largest security breaches in U.S. history, has been moved to the Army’s maximum security prison at Fort Leavenworth. But, Manning wants to serve the time as a woman.
Manning has issued a statement, saying he'd like to be called Chelsea, and start hormone therapy, because he identifies as a female. Jeff Wingo, a spokesman at Fort Leavenworth, says there’s only so much the Army can do.
After meetings at a prison at Fort Leavenworth, the lawyer for Army Staff Sergeant Robert Bales has said he expects charges could be filed tomorrow in the murder of 16 Afghanistan civilians during a rampage earlier this month.
