Army private allegedly released classified documents to WikiLeaks
FORT MEADE, Md. (KABC) -- The pretrial hearing of an Army intelligence analyst accused of spilling U.S. secrets to WikiLeaks picks up after some potentially damaging testimony.
Spectators and reporters were removed from the military hearing on Monday for a part of the case dealing with still classified, yet widely published, information.
Pfc. Bradley Manning's computer activity was the focus on Monday, with the fourth day of testimony focusing on a forensic examination of his two workplace computers.
An investigator revealed that he found more than 10,000 diplomatic cables and other sensitive information on a computer used by Manning. He also said someone had been searching for information on WikiLeaks where the classified material surfaced.
The hearing determines whether Manning faces a court-martial.
