Army Private First Class Chelsea Manning now walks relatively free from her cage after serving seven harrowing years at a military prison in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, for leaking some 700,000 documents and files to Wikileaks — among them, video footage of U.S. Military service members annihilating twelve civilians, including two members of a Reuters news crew, with machine guns fired from an Apache helicopter in Baghdad in 2007.
“I can confirm Manning has been released from The United States Disciplinary Barracks, Ft. Leavenworth,” Army spokesperson Cynthia Smith affirmed in a statement this morning. “Based on privacy act restrictions there is nothing further I can provide at this time.”
Army officials confirmed to Buzzfeed Manning was released at 2 a.m., Central Time.
