Giles Administrative Proceeding File No. In the Matter of Hari K. Ravichandran Administrative Proceeding File No. Her duties as an intelligence analyst there gave her access to a great deal of classified information. Some of this information—including videos that showed unarmed civilians being shot at and killed—horrified Manning. In February , while on leave in Rockville, Maryland, she passed this information—which amounted to hundreds of thousands of documents, many of them classified—to WikiLeaks.
In April, the organization released a video that showed a helicopter crew shooting at civilians after having confused a telephoto lens for weaponry. Releases of other information continued throughout the year. Upon her return to Iraq, Manning had behavioral issues that included attacking an officer. She was demoted and told she would be discharged. Manning subsequently reached out to a stranger online, hacker Adrian Lamo. Using the screen name "bradass87," Manning confided in Lamo about the leaks.
Lamo contacted the Defense Department about what he had learned, which led to Manning's arrest in May Manning was first imprisoned in Kuwait, where she became suicidal. After returning to the United States, she was moved to a Marine base in Virginia. Manning was kept in solitary confinement for most of her time there, and was unable to leave her small, windowless cell for 23 hours each day.
Deemed a suicide risk, she was watched over constantly, sometimes kept naked in her cell and not permitted to have a pillow or sheets. Even when a psychiatrist said that Manning was no longer a danger to herself, the conditions of her imprisonment did not improve.
When word of these conditions spread, there was an international outcry. Manning was transferred to Fort Leavenworth in Kansas in , where she was allowed to have personal effects in a windowed cell. In January , the judge in Manning's case ruled that her imprisonment had been unduly harsh and gave her a sentencing credit.
In June , Manning was charged with leaking classified information. In March , additional charges were added. These included the accusation of aiding the enemy, as the information Manning had leaked had been accessible to Al-Qaeda. In February , Manning pleaded guilty to storing and leaking military information. She explained that her actions had been intended to encourage debate, not harm the United States.
She continued to plead not guilty to several other charges while her court martial proceeded. On July 30, Manning was found guilty of 20 counts, including espionage, theft and computer fraud. However, the judge ruled she was not guilty of aiding the enemy, the most serious charge Manning had faced. On August 21, , Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison. Manning was dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank and forced to forfeit all pay. The Obama administration maintained that military and diplomatic sources were endangered by Manning's leaks.
Even with Manning's conviction, the debate continues as to whether she shared dangerous intelligence or if she was a whistleblower who received too harsh of a punishment. On the day after her sentencing, Manning announced via a statement on the morning talk show Today that she is transgender. I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible," Manning said.
After filing a court petition, Manning was granted the right in late April of to be legally recognized as Chelsea Elizabeth Manning. The army made hormone therapy available to the former intelligence analyst, who continued to be held at Fort Leavenworth, though other restrictions were imposed, including measures on hair length. During the summer of , Manning was reportedly threatened with solitary confinement for prison rule violations that her attorneys asserted were veiled forms of harassment by authorities.
On July 5, , Manning was hospitalized after a suicide attempt. She faced a disciplinary hearing related to her suicide attempt and was sentenced to solitary confinement. On October 4, , while spending the first night in solitary confinement, she attempted suicide again.
Support for her release continued to grow and in the waning days of President Barack Obama's presidency, , people signed a petition asking him to commute her sentence. On January 17, , Obama did just that, cutting short Manning's remaining prison sentence, which allowed her to be freed on May 17, An administration official said she was not immediately released in order to allow for time to handle items like procuring housing.
Manning served seven years of the year sentence, with some Republicans, including Speaker of the House Paul Ryan , critiquing the act of clemency. Manning has shared her perspectives on gender identity, imprisonment and political affairs via a series of columns written for The Guardian.
Four months after her release from prison, Manning appeared in the September issue of Vogu e magazine, featuring photographs by Annie Liebovitz.
