WASHINGTON – Pfc. Bradley Manning returned to court in Fort Meade, Md., on Tuesday morning for pretrial hearings during which his defense attorney is expected to ask the “judge to dismiss all charges because his client has not received a speedy trial,” WWYN has reported.
Manning is accused of leaking thousands of classified documents to the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks. He has been charged with 22 counts related to aiding the enemy and leaking classified information.
Host Ric Young talked with Eugene R. Fidell, a senior research scholar in law and Florence Rogatz Visiting Lecturer at Yale Law School, to discuss the case.
