Manning's Judge Removal Denied

Bradley Manning was back in military court Saturday—his 24th birthday—to hear prosecutors argue that he was the source for WikiLeaks's vast collection of military secrets. An Army appeals court denied an earlier defense request to remove presiding officer Lt. Col. Paul Almanza because of alleged bias against the young soldier. Manning, a former intelligence agent in Baghdad, is being accused of leaking thousands of Iraq and Afghanistan war logs, State Department cables, and classified videos that the Obama administration says has threatened valuable sources and American relationships abroad.
