Attorney asks for dismissal in WikiLeaks case
Attorney for soldier charged with passing documents to WikiLeaks asks for dismissal in case
By The Associated Press

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) ' An attorney for an Army private charged with leaking hundreds of thousands of pages of classified information has asked a military judge to dismiss the charges against his client, arguing the government bungled the turning over of documents in the case.

Pfc. Bradley Manning was in court for a military hearing in his case Thursday.

Military prosecutors say Manning, a 24-year-old Oklahoma native, downloaded and sent to the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks hundreds of thousands of sensitive documents and diplomatic cables. Defense lawyers say Manning was clearly a troubled young soldier whom the Army should never have deployed to Iraq or given access to classified material.

Manning's attorney argued the government doesn't understand its obligation to turn over documents. The government says it has complied with the rules.
