Has the Miranda warning been updated to include “the right to a taxpayer-funded sex change operation“?

Bradley Manning, the Army private sentenced to military prison for leaking classified documents, revealed he intends to live out the remainder of his life as a woman.

“I am Chelsea Manning. I am female,” the Army private wrote in a statement read on TODAY Thursday. “Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”

Manning, 25, was sentenced to 35 years in prison on Wednesday after having been found guilty of 20 charges ranging from espionage to theft for leaking more than 700,000 documents to the WikiLeaks website while working in Iraq in 2010.

Don’t you love the presumptuousness of that? “Yeah, I was just found guilty of espionage and dishonorably discharged from the Army — now how about you pay to turn me into a chick?”

    The only way I would consider letting taxpayers fund this would be that once the transformation is finished he/she is stripped of US citizenship and forced to live out the remainder of his/her life out as a civilian in the general population of Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, etc.

    I'm sure the other inmates will be willing to treat him as one.

    I've always thought the Gitmo prisoners should be given estrogen treatments. Release them in their home countries once they've lost all facial hair, their voice changes, and they have fully developed breasts.
