“We’ve come a long way from executing spies and traitors to giving them taxpayer-paid sex-change surgery and positions of influence at prestigious universities such as Harvard.” – Leonard Tobias, DIA-retired
Harvard University announced early Friday morning that a fellowship and invitation to speak extended to Chelsea Manning, the transgender U.S. Army soldier who leaked classified data during the Obama administrations was rescinded. The announcement of Manning’s appointment drew extensive criticism from many including two leaders from the intelligence community who resigned the school.
As reported in the Conservative Base:
Former U.S. Army soldier-turned-enemy agent Bradley “Chelsea” Manning who, switched gender-identity while detained by the military, is being honored by Harvard University with a visiting-fellow post at the prestigious John F. Kennedy School of Government, according to the Military Times on Wednesday.
According to the MT reporter, Manning was coming onboard to lecture about Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) members of the U.S. military.
Manning, who served as an Army intelligence analyst, was found guilty in 2013 for his stealing and leaking an abundance of classified and sensitive documents.
The private-first-class soldier garnered a stiff 35-year prison term after a military judge found her guilty of six Espionage Act violations and other charges stemming from her illegal release of over a half-million classified Pentagon and State Department material to WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange.
Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell for the Obama administration on Thursday handed in his resignation as a member of Harvard’s faculty after he discovered the ivy-league university named a U.S. Army soldier-turned-convicted felon Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow. While a large segment of the U.S. population is pleased with Manning’s espionage and his personal lifestyle, there are many who believe Manning is a self-serving traitor who had taxpayers pay for his sex-change regimen.
“Harvard University is a joke these days thanks to the left-wing orthodoxy that’s taken a stranglehold of a once elite higher learning institution,” said former Marine intelligence operative and police commander Sid Franes. “When you look at how much they charge for tuition, it appears to be one of the biggest rip-offs in this country,” he said.
Current CIA Director Mike Pompeo canceled his speaking engagement on Thursday over the Harvard’s appointment of Chelsea Manning as a visiting fellow. Pompeo simply called Manning an “American traitor.”
“Of all the veterans who honorably served, Harvard hires Chelsea Manning who was convicted of espionage? Unbelievable,” former Marine sergeant Jessie Jane Duff said on her Twitter account.
