Chelsea Manning Launches an Attack Against Ex-Ally Glenn Greenwald: 'You're Greedy & Unprincipled'
“Last night during the floods i decided that im no longer going to be afraid of saying what’s on my mind anymore or taking a stand from the people that i once considered allies but who have chosen to bash, harass, humiliate, intimidate, and lie to get ahead,” the whistleblower added in a follow-up tweet.

Who has he hurt? Other than the feelings of some very powerful warmongers? He’s one of the best journalists around. You don’t have to agree with everything he says and does to see that.— 🕊 my body my choice, right? (@jamesforpeace) September 2, 2021
“Friendships that depend on political agreement were never "friendships," just cynical transactions,” he shortly tweeted in response. “When she was in prison trying repeatedly to kill herself, I was one of the only one who visited, spent hours on the phone, raising money for her. No good deed goes unpunished.”
Lots of people on the left -- not all, but many -- mistake friendships for political agreements, such that when the political agreement erodes, for them the "friendship" does, too.— Glenn Greenwald (@ggreenwald) September 2, 2021
Friendships that don't transcend politics or require political agreement have no value.
“You’re losing a lot of friends here,” Manning wrote.
So nothing specific, just don't like him because he talks to people on the right. Got it. The left is absolutely pathetic.— 🌺 Gay American Labor Nationalist 🌺 (@AntiEstabli1989) September 2, 2021
Who has Glenn bashed, harassed, humiliated and intimidated? This is all so wildly out of the blue and vague!— Don'tShoottheMessenger⏳ (@newSkye) September 2, 2021
What shocked me about GG wasn’t has rightward turn, but his misogyny towards female journalists.— fabucat ⚾️ (@fabucat) September 2, 2021
Thanks for standing up for all women once again.
