  • More than 1,300 emails could illuminate why high-ranking officials at a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., placed alleged WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning in nine months of solitary confinement, a military judge ruled Tuesday.
  • Pfc. Bradley Manning privately told his trial judge Wednesday how he intends to respond to charges that he sent WikiLeaks hundreds of thousands of secret files about U.S. diplomacy and warfare.
  • President Barack Obama’s remarks 2 years ago that WikiLeaks disclosures “don’t reveal any issues that haven’t already informed our public debate on Afghanistan” could be used to seek a reduced sentence if Pfc. Bradley Manning is convicted at court martial, a military judge ruled Thursday.
