Flashback: Chelsea Manning’s female supervisor in Iraq told Army: ‘He punched me in face’

Published

on

In 2011, Chelsea E. Manning, then serving as Spc. Bradley E. Manning, a former Army intelligence specialist assaulted a female superior while deployed in Iraq–an incident that led to his bust to private first class.

“He threw his hands up in the air, yelled “no,” and rushed me,” said Spc. Jihrleah W. Showman in a sworn statement.

Manning, a biological male who “transitioned” to a female and changed his first name to Chelsea while in prison, was convicted in 2013 on 21 charges, including six counts of espionage for his role in stealing and leaking classified information to Wikileaks during a deployment to Iraq in 2009.

“He punched me in face and kind of body-slammed me,” Showman said.

“Then I pushed my chair back, he rushed me again, and I pinned him to the ground and screamed at him,” she said.Showman, who was Manning’s superior in Iraq, testified for the prosecution during his trial. She testified at great length about Manning’s mental state and bizarre behavior while under her supervision.

When asked about repercussions from the physical attack, Showman said that a lieutenant changed the code to a cipher lock on an office door and demanded that Manning have his weapon taken away. The next day, she said that she and lieutenant wrote a derogatory report on Manning, demanding that he have his security clearance pulled, in an effort to make the company commander aware of the situation.

In her testimony, she described outbursts that Manning would have at least once per week, and how Manning could not work after being corrected for such behavior.

“He would go completely rigid if he was corrected on anything,” she said.

Showman described a time shortly after an Equal Opportunity (EO) report had been filed for use of offensive language that Manning began using the words “faggoty” and “gay” in a derogatory manner.

“I sent out a shop email reminding everyone of the EO complaint,” she said.

Showman said that she believed that there were many reasons that Manning should not have been deployed in the first place.

“He would have emotional breakdowns – he would freeze emotionally; he stated that he felt no loyalty to this nation, that the flag on his shoulder meant nothing to him; he stated several times that he felt paranoid, that people were listening in on him; at one point he described to me that in the process of joining the Army, that he had to scrub the internet of anything that had his name on it or he wouldn’t have gotten a security clearance,” she said.

She said that the night before Manning allegedly assaulted her, she found him on the floor in a conference room in the fetal position rocking back and forth.

“I was just counting down the days until he lost it, we all thought that way.”

Showman could not be reached for comment for this story.

Manning’s prison sentence was commuted by President Barack H. Obama to just seven years, and he was released on May 17.

Manning is now running for Senate.

The Federal Election Commission received Jan. 11 Manning’s filing for candidacy in the Maryland senate race. Manning, who is now a resident of Bethesda, is one of four Democrats running for the seat held by Democrat Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin, who is not seeking re-election.

Biden’s Syria Strikes Killed at Least 22 People – More than Both of Trump’s Strikes on the Country

Biden’s airstrike killed 22 people.

Published

on

President Joe Biden has surpassed President Trump’s body-count for US involvement in Syria’s bloody and seemingly endless civil war- killing more people in one batch of airstrikes than were killed in both of Trump’s military actions targeting Syrian government forces in the country in 2017 and 2018.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has indicated that 22 pro-Assad militia fighters were killed in the airstrike, which reportedly struck three trucks after they crossed the Iraq-Syria border. The airstrikes were staged in response to missile attacks that killed an international contractor and injured US military service members earlier this month, with the Biden administration pointing to Iranian backing of Shia militias in both Iraq and Syria.

Trump’s first missile strike on Syrian government facilities in response to a chemical weapons incident in 2017. Ranges of causalities range from nine to 16 deaths. President Trump oversaw a far more aggressive military campaign to destroy the ISIS caliphate, while dealing with the Syrian government in a more conservative and measured fashion.

Observers maintain that President Trump’s second missile strike on the Syrian government didn’t even kill anyone, with the Syrian government describing six soldiers and three civilians as having been injured in the series of missile strikes that targeted scientific and alleged chemical munitions facilities.

President Trump was in office for four years and avoided inflicting casualties of the kind Biden has in just over a month- on a questionable intelligence basis. Biden’s action may suggest his administration intends to further pursue aggressive action and regime change in Syria, a long-sought priority of the western globalist establishment.

This military action was by every indication more lethal and serious than anything Trump implemented in Syria or Iraq during his presidency- including the killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani. The corporate-establishment media has largely glossed over the event, refusing to scrutinize the questionable intelligence behind the consequential airstrikes.
