Manning added that the cables did not necessarily support opposition to U.S. wars.

"I believe it is also perfectly reasonable to subjectively interpret these documents and come to the opposite opinion and say 'hey, look at these documents, they clearly justify this war,'" she wrote.

Manning announced her request to be recognized as a woman in August, and is still pushing for treatment for Gender Dysphoria. Manning's lawyer said in September that the military brought in an expert to conduct an assessment.

Manning also clarified that she no longer carries any rank in the U.S. military, and would prefer to go by "Ms." or no title.
