Tweets OK as evidence in WikiLeaks case: Judge
Fort Meade (US): A military judge has ruled that prosecutors can introduce tweets suggesting an Army private took his cues from WikiLeaks in disclosing classified information.
However, Col Denise Lind also ruled today against another piece of prosecution evidence in the court-martial of Pfc Bradley Manning at Fort Meade.
Lind allowed the admission of two tweets WikiLeaks posted in 2010 referring to material Manning allegedly sent to the anti-secrecy organisation or stole from a Defence Department database.
But Lind says prosecutors have not authenticated a "most wanted" list that WikiLeaks purportedly posted in November 2009. She says prosecutors can still try to authenticate the list.
The list and tweets were offered as evidence that Manning aided the enemy by leaking documents he knew would be published online and seen by al-Qaeda.
