Hearing For GI In WikiLeaks Case Enters 10th Day - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Brig Boss: Manning's Treatment Closely Watched

Posted: Updated:

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - A former Marine Corps brig commander says her decision to have underwear removed from an Army private charged in the WikiLeaks case prompted a request that she run future orders involving Pfc. Bradley Manning up the chain of command before executing them.
    
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Denise Barnes testified Monday on the 10th day of a pretrial hearing at Fort Meade. The hearing is to determine whether the nine months Manning spent at the brig in Quantico, Va., amounted to illegal pretrial punishment.
    
Barnes says she was never ordered to keep Manning in maximum custody, with additional restrictions to prevent self-injury.
    
The defense contends Manning's conditions were dictated by Lt. Gen. George Flynn, then the highest ranking officer at Quantico.
