The NY Times has coverage of yesterday’s hearing in the PFC Bradley Manning case, here.  In addition to the ruling we blogged about yesterday, here, that permitted evidence from the Bin Laden compound raid to be introduced, Judge Lind also ruled that the government charged Manning under the second Espionage Act section that requires proof of reason to believe the information released will be us3d against the US.  That is a higher burden than the government had asked for (the first clause of the Espionage Act only requires willful release).  Judge Lind also imposed new constraints on media covering the case after a recording of Manning’s statement during the providence hearing made its way to the internet.  Additional coverage from WaPo here
