Court denies dismissal of 8 WikiLeaks charges

•  National News     updated  2012/06/08 23:49


A military judge is refusing to dismiss eight of the 22 counts against an Army private charged in a massive leak of government secrets.

Col. Denise Lind made the ruling Friday during a pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, Md.

She rejected defense arguments that the government used unconstitutionally vague language in charging Manning with unauthorized possession and disclosure of classified information.

Lind is considering another defense motion seeking dismissal of two counts alleging Manning exceeded his authority to access a Defense Department computer system.

She said Manning's trial, currently set for September, will likely start in November or January due to procedural issues.

Manning is charged with aiding the enemy and other offenses on accusations he caused thousands of classified documents to be published on the WikiLeaks website.
