Former Private First Class, Bradley Manning, now inmate 89289 (Chelsea ?) Manning has made a few major mistakes in his/her life, firstly by leaking 250,000 diplomatic cables and 500,000 army reports, secondly by getting caught and thirdly in contemplating gender reassignment with the prospect of a lengthy jail sentence. The idea of spending the next 35 years in an institute full of maniacs denied any form of sexual outlet could prove somewhat daunting.
It should be noted that both Manning and Snowden have been nominated for some human rights awards, for 89289 Manning this may be of scant comfort in the years to come. Snowden too, may well have some reservations about returning from Russia, but may consider that, for the moment at least, his digestive tract remains secure from unwanted attentions. Manning has had the foresight to organise a support website, however the most practical help for the future, may be in ensuring the continued supply of bulk Vaseline or other specialised lubricants.
