Ask me anything about a case of national interest

I’ve been called as a witness to the court martial of Private Bradley Manning, so I’m doing an AMA (“ask me anything”) on Reddit today. I’ll be answering questions all day as they come up, and I’ll try to do it as quickly as possible. The full archive of my answers so far can be found here. Ask away!

    I did not know that federal prosecutors were so heavily involved in taking down character witnesses on felony perjury charges, but that seems to be the general consensus on reddit and most of them claim to be lawyers so I guess it’s legit.

      I seriously doubt that so many of the reddit crown are lawyers. I work with a whole bunch of lawyers, and can tell you with certainty that none of them would have as much as heard of Reddit.

      I haven’t learned this much about the law since last night’s Yaz lawsuit infomercials.

    That was weird. Reddit is not normally that closed minded. It took me a while to work out that it was you, though..I was weird – I didn’t open the links initially, and when I saw your name in the chat with Bradley Manning, it was like…I know that name (light slowly turning on…).

      So many wannabe lawyers shouting their heads off, meanwhile Zinnia’s comments have been downvoted to hell. I’ve hardly ever seen such a fucked-up Reddit thread outside of the really horrible sub-reddits. #furrfu

      Reddit got real ugly. This is casting a dark ass shadow over the whole site for me. Sorry this happened like this, Zinna.
