FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) -- A military judge said Tuesday that she wants to see several federal agencies' assessments of the damage caused by WikiLeaks' publication of government secrets.

Army Col. Denise Lind ordered prosecutors during a pretrial hearing to provide the documents so she can decide whether they should be turned over to Pfc. Bradley Manning's defense lawyers.

Manning is being court-martialed for allegedly giving the anti-secrecy website a trove of classified documents and video clips.

His attorneys are seeking damage assessments done by the CIA and the Departments of Justice, State and Defense to back up its claim that the leaked documents did no harm to U.S. interests.

If ever there was someone in need of a good hanging.

I'd even pay for the rope. Anything else I'd say about this little faggot would get me banned from FR.

That’s why there was a guy out front of the main gate with a “Bradley Manning is a HERO” sign this morning. ‘splains it. He had a captive audience of hundreds of vehicles, though most who probably never got a chance to read any of the wikileaks that was to have been leaked because we were all forbidden to go to the site. Military, contractors, civilians, none of us.
