The level and process of leaking the information was different for both. One used "proper" channels, the other fucked it up and then ran from the country instead of serving.

Running from the country really doesn't help to prove your point...


There are proper channels for giving classified and sensitive info to Wikileaks and The Intercept?
At least in the case Snowden officials have made it pretty clear proper channels are a joke and lead to retaliation.

Given the way they treated Manning before he was convicted I don't know why any would stick around and be mistreated and abused. As though serving time does anything other than mollify those that disagree with the course of action.

And yet Manning is commuted and Snowden is still on the run.

It looks like it helped to me... Sure you had to deal with shit... But her life isn't over. Snowden's professional career may be.

So Snowden is booking his ticket to return to the US to keep his end of the promise?

Snowden is a traitor and I hope Putin has his way with him.
