    Manning is a traitor just as is Snowden. Let's not forget the oath they've sworn to protect: "I will protect this nation from ALL enemies, foreign or DOMESTIC."

    "Whistle-blower or traitor?" How bout criminal because that is what he is. What`s crazy is alot of people haven`t followed this story very close. If you read the emails from manning to a hacker(the man who told the FBI about manning) manning cleary states he did this for revenge for him being deployed and ruining his relationship with his lover. All this whistle-blower stuff is just fodder.

    Our national security is being compromised by neo-libertarian revolutionaries. Simply put, Manning committed treason. End of story. There are ways to blow the whistle without breaking the law.

    As for Snowden, he never was a whistleblower. Whistleblowers do not steal information, leave the country for that of our political rivals, and release your information there. That's not heroic. It's called treason.

    Five years with time served.

    If he had sold information for profit or malice a harsher sentences would be appropriate .

    Stupid young man let himself be manipulated .
