Newly-freed Chelsea Manning says putting past behind her

Newly-freed Chelsea Manning says putting past behind herChelsea Manning, the transgender army private jailed for giving US secrets to WikiLeaks, said Wednesday she was looking to put the past behind her as she walked free from a maximum-security prison in Kansas. “Whatever is ahead of me, is far more important than the past,” said the 29-year-old, who served seven of a 35-year sentence over one of the largest leaks of classified documents in US history. Manning, who twice attempted to commit suicide during her incarceration at Fort Leavenworth, was the unlikely source of disclosures that rocked the US government.
