Accused GI is denied WikiLeaks grand jury records
Military judge denies accused GI's request for WikiLeaks grand jury transcript
By The Associated Press

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) ' A military judge says Army prosecutors don't have to provide the defense with transcripts of federal grand jury testimony regarding government secrets disclosed by Wikileaks.

Army Col. Denise Lind ruled Wednesday during a pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning. He's the intelligence analyst charged with sending reams of government secrets to the anti-secrecy website in 2009 and 2010.

Manning's lawyers were seeking transcripts from a federal investigation into whether WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be prosecuted for the disclosure of information that authorities say was provided by Manning.

Lind said that while the FBI and the Army have jointly pursued a WikiLeaks investigation, military prosecutors have no authority to release FBI documents.
