Early out for Bradley Manning

CNN reports

Sentenced to 35 years in 2013, after more than 2 years awaiting trial, President Obama commuted his sentence before leaving office.

Conditions of confinement were harsh from the beginning, and Manning's gender issues contributed to depression, suicide attempts, and great suffering.

But in the minds of many he was a hero.

Perhaps also, still, even in his own.
