Defense rests in Wikileaks trial
FORT MEADE, Md.– The defense has rested in the case of an Oklahoma Army private accused of leaking government documents and videos to a website.
Defense attorneys presented evidence from 10 witnesses this week, hoping to prove that the material Bradley Manning allegedly gave to Wikileaks was not a threat to national security.
Manning did not take the stand during this court-martial.
However, he testified during a pre-trial hearing in February.
Manning faces 21 charges, including aiding the enemy, which carries a possible life sentence.
Prosecutors say they plan to call rebuttal witnesses next week.
