Michael Among Chelsea Manning Well-Wishers

From theguardian.com: “On Wednesday, Chelsea Manning —€œ heroine, whistleblower and inmate —€œ turns 27. She has been behind bars for four years and eight months, ever since her arrest for leaking ­classified US documents. There isn’t much prospect that she will be released any time soon. Manning is serving a 35-year sentence, with the earliest possibility of parole being in 2021. She has appealed to Barack Obama for a pardon. It seems unlikely he will grant it…”

On the occasion of her 27th birthday, a host of well-wishers, including Michael Stipe, have offered Ms. Manning birthday wishes and greetings.
