The military court-martial of accused Army whistleblower Bradley Manning continued at Fort Meade, Maryland, on Tuesday for a second day. Witnesses included Adrian Lamo, the convicted computer hacker who turned Manning in to U.S. authorities after the two became friends online.
Lamo testified that Manning expressed hope the files he passed on to WikiLeaks would help spark global debate and policy changes. For a consecutive day, prosecutors sought to tie Manning to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, asking Lamo if Manning had mentioned Assange’s name. Manning’s immediate superiors are expected to take the stand on June 5th, followed by a recess until Monday.
