Harvard Gives Convicted Spy Bradley "Chelsea" Manning of Being a "Fellow;"
Hillary-Connected Former CIA Officer Mike Morrell Resigns His Own Fellowship in Protest

He's actually a treasonous spy, but he self-identifies as a noble political activist, and who are we to question his self-conception?

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell on Thursday announced his resignation as a senior fellow at Harvard after the university named U.S. Army soldier-turned-convicted felon Chelsea Manning a visiting fellow.

Manning reacted to Morell's resignation with a one-word Tweet: "good."

Manning will take on the role at Harvardís John F. Kennedy School of Government, the school said on its website.

"She speaks on the social, technological and economic ramifications of Artificial Intelligence," the Harvard announcement said. "As a trans woman, she advocates for queer and transgender rights as @xychelsea on Twitter."

Apparently the "queer and transgender rights" he advocates for include paying no social consequences for betraying your country, because, I guess, sexual minorities are not equal, but Superior.

I note, with some amount of glee, that Harvard is correctly "gendering" Bradley Manning by declaring him a "fellow." So that's something.
