Fort Meade, Maryland – Attorneys for Bradley Manning, accused of spilling secrets to WikiLeaks, rested their defense Wednesday at a hearing to determine if the US soldier should face a court-martial.
Closing arguments were scheduled for Thursday at 9:00 am (1400 GMT) in the case involving one of the most serious intelligence breaches in US history.
The defense team said after calling two witnesses that it was ready to proceed immediately to final arguments, but US Army prosecutors requested more time to prepare.
