FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors are moving quickly through the court-martial of Pfc. Bradley Manning.

The former Army intelligence analyst is charged with aiding the enemy. He has acknowledged sending reams of government secrets to WikiLeaks, but says he didn’t think it would hurt national security.

As the trial entered its third week Monday, testimony focused on documents in which the U.S. had assessed the threat level of individual detainees at the prison for terrorist suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

So far, the military judge has heard from more than 40 of the government’s approximately 140 witnesses.

Last week’s testimony involved battlefield reports and videos. Still to come is evidence about 250,000 diplomatic cables Manning allegedly stole from a State Department database.

Manning says he leaked the material to expose wrongdoing.
