She is quoted as saying:
"Of what I did, nothing is wrong, so I didn't anticipate anything, of course," Manhart, 30, told The Associated Press. "I didn't do anything wrong, so I didn't think it would be a major issue."
"There's nothing wrong with it. I consider myself a very good image," Manhart said, who told the Express-News she'd dreamed of posing for Playboy since she was 12. "By no means did I see anything negative in what I was doing."
Huh? Ok she's stupid in so many ways it's not funny. Forget the fact that her lifelong dream has been to pose in Playboy (eyeroll, please!), why would she want to bring dishonor to her service and the women she serves with and violate very clearly spelled out rules of conduct?
One of the first things you learn in bootcamp and which is reiterated over and over again throughout your service is that you conduct yourself becoming of a member of the United States Armed Forces. Posing nude is not part of that code and I can't believe she could be so stupid as to do it and then attempt to defend herself both in the news and on her myspace site where she is actively promoting her pictorial.
Now she's got herself a lawyer and she's going to sue. Sue for what? Violation of her Constitutional Rights? Oh this should be interesting.
