He did it! I thought he might, but I wasn't 100% certain. I knew there was no way he'd pardon Edward Snowden, but there was a chance he'd pardon Manning, and he did! She'll be released May 17, it will be interesting to see what she goes on to do with her life now that her military career is over.

There's an interesting part in the article about Julian Assange of Wikileaks. Apparently he stated that if Manning were released that he would not fight extradition to the USA. I'm not going to hold my breath on that, but we'll see what happens.
