Man­ning ti­tle is with­drawn

The Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

Har­vard Univer­sity has re­versed its de­ci­sion to name Chelsea Man­ning a visit­ing fel­low, a day af­ter CIA chief Mike Pom­peo scrapped an ap­pear­ance over the des­ig­na­tion for the sol­dier who was con­victed of leak­ing clas­si­fied in­for­ma­tion.

In a state­ment posted on the univer­sity’s web­site, Har­vard Kennedy School dean Dou­glas El­men­dorf said nam­ing Ms Man­ning a visit­ing fel­low was a mis­take. He added the for­mer sol­dier is still in­vited to spend a day at the school and speak to stu­dents.

Mr Pom­peo said he would have be­trayed the trust of CIA em­ploy­ees if he ap­peared with Man­ning, a trans­gen­der woman, 29, for­merly known as Bradley Man­ning.
