Chelsea Manning Covers New York Times Magazine

Chelsea Manning gives the New York Times Magazine an in-depth, deeply personal interview that covers much of her seven years of imprisonment and her leaking of documents to Wikileaks.

Some excerpts:

• “Let’s protect sensitive sources. Let’s protect troop movements. Let’s protect nuclear information. Let’s not hide missteps. Let’s not hide misguided policies. Let’s not hide history. Let’s not hide who we are and what we are doing.”

• “There were two worlds. The world in America, and the world I was seeing [in Iraq]. I wanted people to see what I was seeing.”

• "At a certain point, I stopped seeing records and started seeing people.”
