PFC Bradley Manning finally gets his day in court

November 22, 2011

PFC Bradley Manning, accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks, will have his first day in court at a pre-trial hearing at Fort Meade, Maryland on December 16th. In the new “We the People” initiative, the White House promised to answer questions that receive more than 5,000 signatures in an online petition. Despite the petition having more than the necessary amount of signatures, on November 18th, the White House gave an official response online sighting that they are required to decline to comment on specific cases in the military justice system. So how much can we expect to learn when the hearing begins? Firedoglake‘s Jane Hamsher discusses.
