WikiLeaks Suspect Coming to Fort Meade

The soldier who is accused of slipping “hundreds of thousands” of classified documents to Julian Assange will be coming to Fort Meade for a military hearing on December 16th. Army Private First Class Bradley Manning is currently being held at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas and, according to this story by Matthew Hay Brown in The Sun, "faces a court-martial on nearly two dozen charges related to the leak of hundreds of thousands of documents to WikiLeaks.”

“The primary purpose of the Article 32 hearing is "to evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of the government's case as well as to provide the defense with an opportunity to obtain pretrial discovery," attorney David E. Coombs wrote Monday on his website.”

Of course he has a website. In a free country even someone who breaks his oath and betrays his country gets a website and followers who support him, just like another famous traitor, Jonathan Pollard

The hearing is expected to last five days.
