Chelsea Manning: '' I believe I did the very best I could''.

Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017|12:51 p.m.

NANTUCKET, Mass.– Chelsea Manning informed a crowd at a “creative thinkers” conference in Nantucket that she’s not a traitor as her critics have actually declared and she did what she thought was the best thing to do.

Manning is participating in the yearly conference for The Nantucket Task on Sunday in Massachusetts. The Nantucket Project is an endeavor founded to bring together creative thinkers to reveal the ideas that matter the majority of. Organizers state about 600 people are attending.

This is only Manning’s second public look since being launched from a penal institution in Might.

“I believe I did the best I could in my scenarios to make an ethical choice,” she told the crowd when they asked if she was a traitor.

The 29-year-old Manning is a transgender woman who was called Bradley Manning when she was convicted in 2013 of dripping a chest of categorized documents. She was launched from a penal institution in Might after serving seven years of a 35-year sentence, which was commuted by President Barack Obama in his final days in office.

Tom Scott, who co-founded The Nantucket Task with Kate Brosnan, said they invited Manning for “clarity of understanding.”

“My brother and dad are Militaries. They would respectfully challenge some of her decisions,” he said. “Barack Obama travelled her sentence. My instinct is that he’s a great and trustful man. How do those two things mix? Seeing her in person offers, perhaps, the best way to understand that.”

Several audience members stated they were interested to hear from Manning. Sara O’Reilly, a Nantucket resident who has actually attended a number of past conferences, said the speakers are usually a “little edgy.” She stated she does not evaluate Manning and other people have done “far worse” things.

Scott said a few of the attendees were disturbed that Manning was invited, but he didn’t think about pulling back the invitation. Harvard University reversed its decision to call Manning a checking out fellow Friday, a day after CIA Director Mike Pompeo scrapped an organized look over the title for Manning.

Manning said Harvard’s decision signaled to her that it’s a “police state” and it’s not possible to engage in political discourse in academic organizations.

“I’m not ashamed of being disinvited,” she stated. “I view that just as much of an honored distinction as the fellowship itself.”
