WikiLeaks' Attorney: Manning's Pretrial Punishment More to Do with Assange

The military attorney for the man accused of leaking thousands of classified documents to the whistleblower website WikiLeaks said on Monday that the military courtroom was the best venue for his client’s trial, which is slated for March 2013.

At a special presentation, David Coombs spoke about the case of his client, Pfc. Bradley Manning, who has been held in detention centers for nearly three years since his arrest in Iraq.

Host Carmen Russell-Sluchansky attended the event and even spoke with Michael Ratner, the U.S. attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, to discuss Manning, Assange and the entire legal case.
