Manning was going to do himself in eventually, because he was glory hunting. If he was doing this solely to expose the government and let U.S. citizens know what their leaders were up to, he would have kept his mouth shut. Not that I think what he was doing was right. Manning was entrusted with a certain level of security clearance, and violating this trust was wrong, regardless of what he discovered.
While Lamo claims that it was his conscience that drove him to his actions, it is tinged with media-whoring, so therefore, seems ingenuous. That has always been Lamo’s M.O., he can’t resist having his name and face in the news. It is what did him in during his case, and while he may “understand what it is to be 22, in federal custody and in shackles,” there was no point at which he was facing counts of treason and the jail term that Manning is looking at.
Lamo seems more concerned with what everyone thinks about him now that this is out, instead of just standing by the original conviction that led him to his actions. If you think you did the right thing, can wake up in the morning and look yourself squarely in the mirror, then what does it matter what anyone else thinks?
