WikiLeaks Trial Shifting To Afghan War Video

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The court-martial of a U.S. Army private who gave troves of classified material to WikiLeaks is shifting in its second week to specific items he sent.

The trial of Pfc. Bradley Manning resumes Monday at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

The prosecution lineup includes two witnesses familiar with video of a 2009 U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan that killed at least 26 civilians.

Manning has acknowledged sending the video to WikiLeaks from Iraq in the spring of 2010. But it was never posted online.

The government alleges Manning sent it in late fall or early winter of 2009. That’s when a witness has said a similar video appeared on the computer of a U.S. resident who allegedly tried to decrypt it for WikiLeaks.
