On Wednesday, Pvt. Chelsea Manning, the transgender soldier convicted of leaking huge amounts of classified material to WikiLeaks in 2010, was released from Fort Leavenworth military prison, seven years into a 35-year sentence. Former President Barack Obama commuted her sentence before leaving office in January. Manning will remain on active duty without pay, the Army said Tuesday, but will keep her military medical care and commissary privileges. She has said she will move to Maryland after she is out of prison.
