HAR­VARD IS ‘MAN­NING’ UP

New York Post - - NEWS -

“I now think that des­ig­nat­ing Chelsea Man­ning as a Visit­ing Fel­low was a mis­take, for which I ac­cept re­spon­si­bil­ity.”

So says Dou­glas El­men­dorf, the dean of Har­vard’s Kennedy School of Gov­ern­ment. He of­fered the post to Man­ning de­spite the fact that the for­mer mil­i­tary-in­tel­li­gence an­a­lyst spent seven years in prison for leak­ing na­tion­alse­cu­rity se­crets.

El­men­dorf made a bone­headed of­fer, but we shouldn’t be too hard on him. See, he lives in a bub­ble where the mil­i­tary is the en­emy and where Man­ning, a trans­gen­der woman, is a hero de­spite her crimes against Amer­ica.

Look on the bright side: His de­ci­sion to scrap the of­fer is progress.
