Bradley Manning Supporters Release Audio Recording of His Pretrial Statement

HAGERSTOWN, Md. — Some supporters of an Army private charged with aiding the enemy are releasing a leaked audio recording of his explanation for giving U.S. secrets to the WikiLeaks website.

The Freedom of the Press Foundation posted the 68-minute recording of Pfc. Bradley Manning on its website Tuesday. It’s from a Feb. 28 court-martial pretrial hearing at Fort Meade.

News organizations reported on his statement at the hearing, but no spectators were allowed to record the proceedings.
