Susan Estrich: Delusions of Gender Aside, Bradley Manning Is a Criminal

ezs note:  This was a toughie.  On the one hand, it's good to see Chelsea get at least some medical help.  On the other hand, it's kind of strange to give Chelsea full operative care in prison (free!) while other law-abiding citizens have to cough up 20 to 50 thousand bucks out of prison.  (I know this has to work its way through the courts, but still...)

Then there is the penal system.  I do believe that Chelsea must spend some time in prison, but 35 years is really too much.  There is a difference between Cuba or al-Qaida as opposed to Wikileaks.  It's high time that the government separated the two.

I chose Susan Estrich not because she's a conservative, but because she's a liberal, and her reasons are compelling.  And what about my opinion?  Hell, damned if I know...
