AMERICA has asked Chelsea Manning to forgive them for jailing her instead of Bradley Manning.

Authorities state they are unsure how the prison cell containing Bradley Manning somehow came to contain the similarly-named Chelsea Manning.

Eyewitnesses state prison guards were seen removing their hats and scratching their heads as the governor shouted at them and asked Ms Manning if he could call her a cab home.

Chief warder Tom Logan said: “Her hair was the colour of sunshine.

“I don’t mind saying, if I were a few years younger I might’ve asked her to a dance.”
