pfc. manning's trial delayed in wikileaks case
FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) -- The trial of an Army private charged with sending U.S. secrets to the website WikiLeaks is being pushed back from February to March.
Military judge Col. Denise Lind announced the change Sunday at a pretrial hearing at Fort Meade for Pfc. Bradley Manning.
Manning's trial was set to begin Feb. 4. But Lind says pretrial proceedings will push the start date back to either March 16 or March 18.
The hearing is to determine whether the highly restrictive conditions Manning experienced for nine months were justified. The defense claims the restrictions were so punishing that the case should be dismissed.

4. He apparently made two nooses--which were displayed in court.
He's lucky he wasn't allowed to kill himself.
