The President should pardon Chelsea Manning

The President should pardon Chelsea Manning
He should do so on the grounds 
that an amnesty is due those who 
acted to confirm 
the opinion of a majority
of Americans
that we erred badly in getting into Iraq
and we also err remaining in Afghanistan
Duped in both cases
In a completely just world 
Chelsea Manning would not be a traitor
She would be a hero
And all whistle blowers whose aims are just
should be seen likewise
