Witness: Leak of Guantanamo Files by Manning Posed no Threat

Giving detainee assessments to WikiLeaks did not endanger national security


A former Guantánamo Bay prosecutor says secret detainee assessments that Army Pfc. Bradley Manning gave to WikiLeaks did not threaten national security.

Retired Air Force Col. Morris Davis testified as a defense witness Tuesday at the soldier's court-martial.

Manning has acknowledged sending nearly 800 Guantánamo detainee assessments to the anti-secrecy group in March 2010. Five of the documents are the basis of an espionage charge.
