The American Family Association has a new theory on what prompted private Bradley Manning to allegedly turn over 250,000 diplomatic cables to public scrutiny and analysis:

Bryan Fischer, the AFA's head of issues analysis, believes he knows what motivated the man thought to be behind the WikiLeaks release of State Department cables: A "homosexual" agenda.

Private Bradley Manning, who has been in US custody since he was linked to a WikiLeaks release earlier this year, "sold out his country in what may turn out to be fit of gay pique," Fischer writes at the AFA's blog.

Fischer, the AFA's director of issues analysis, writes that Manning "was, at a minimum, seriously confused about his sexuality, and at worst, launched the WikiLeaks campaign to strike back at the military for its 'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell' policy, which he vehemently opposed."

Of course, there's no evidence of this (who needs evidence?) but it does raise evocative questions about Assange's much-hyped poison pill. Could his encrypted document dump be an unfettered look at the nation's secret gay agenda, as outlined by secret gay president Tony Perkins and ratified by the Pentagon men's chorus?
