Hacker who revealed Chelsea Mannings’ crimes dies

Interesting change in the Chelsea Manning saga.   Just under a year-and-a-half after his  release, the man who  essentially helped send him to prison  has died.  Adrian Lamo, the hacker  who exposed Mannings’ leaks, was found dead in Wichita Kansas on Wednesday.

The Guardian has a highly interesting profile, on how, Manning had no idea he was being set-up.  Lamo ‘s telling of information to the feds would later lead to a 35-year-sentence for treason. Although, such would later be commuted by former President Barack Obama.
