Judge to rule on defense motion in WikiLeaks case against Manning
Question of the Day
FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — A military judge says she will rule later Tuesday on a motion to dismiss all charges against an Army private charged with sending reams of classified documents to the WikiLeaks website.
Col. Denise Lind’s announcement came during a pretrial hearing Tuesday at Fort Meade for Pfc. Bradley Manning.
The 24-year-old former Army intelligence analyst is trying to get the charges against him thrown out, arguing that the military held him in unduly harsh conditions for nine months to punish him after his 2010 arrest.
The Pentagon has said that Pfc. Manning was a suicide risk and that it was only trying to keep him from hurting himself and others when it confined him to a windowless, 6-by-8-foot cell in the Marine Corps brig at Quantico, Va., for 23 hours a day.
