Judge begins 5-day hearing in military leak case
Army private accused of classified leak asks again to have 2 of 22 charges dropped
By The Associated Press

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) A defense attorney for an Army private charged in the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history is renewing a request to have two of the 22 charges against his client dropped.

The attorney for Pfc. Bradley Manning made his argument before a military judge Monday, the first day of a planned five-day hearing at Maryland's Fort Meade. Lawyers for Manning and the government are discussing a number of issues in advance of his trial, which is set for September.

Prosecutors say the now 24-year-old gave hundreds of thousands of classified diplomatic cables and war logs to the secret-sharing website WikiLeaks. Manning's attorney argued Monday that two charges alleging Manning exceeded his authorized access to a Defense Department computer network are improper. The judge has yet to rule.
