Despite their longtime friendship, former intelligence analyst-turned-whistleblower Chelsea Manning has publicly disavowed journalist Glenn Greenwald.
In a series of tweets on Thursday, Chelsea Manning, formerly Bradley, said that the floods in New York prompted him to take a stand against former allies, Greenwald being chief among them:
Glenn Greenwald, I don’t have $10,000 right now but if I get it I want to send it back to you from a donation you once did. I can’t deal with this anymore. I’m terrified of you and everything you do. you’re greedy, unprincipled, and I’m embarrassed for ever considering you a friend.
“To those he has hurt, I’m sorry I didn’t say anything. I was scared and that’s my fault,” Manning concluded.
