Prosecutors Battle for Admission of 'Conspiracy' Evidence in Manning Trial

They argue he was an agent for Wikileaks


Pfc. Bradley Manning, who is on trial at Fort Meade for releasing United States government information to WikiLeaks, does not face any conspiracy charges. However, this morning there were arguments on a motion that related to defense objections over evidence the prosecution would like to have admitted into the trial to help further their case that Manning was working on behalf of WikiLeaks.

One piece of evidence is a Google cache copy of a 2009 "Most Wanted" list that the media organization compiled by asking "journalists, activists, historians, lawyers, police, or human rights investigators" from around the world to submit examples of "concealed documents or recordings" they would like to see leaked. The copy was taken off of the "Wayback Machine" or website.
