    http://www.democracynow.org - In breaking news, defense attorney David Coombs has shared a statement announcing Bradley Manning's gender transition to female and name change to Chelsea Manning. "As I transition into this next phase of my life, I want everyone to know the real me," Manning says. "I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. 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." Coombs said Manning had not wanted his sexual identity issues to become public, but they did after his arrest in 2010.
