Bradley Manning's Trial To Begin September 21

•, Common Dreams staff
 UPDATE: Military judge Colonel Denise Lind said Wednesday morning that military prosecutors and Manning's defense team had decided on a tentative trial schedule beginning September 21 and lasting through October 12. The trial will start more than two years after Manning was arrested.
The judge ruled against a motion filed by defense attorney David Coombs to dismiss all the charges because of what he called the prosecutor's intentional withholding of evidence needed to prepare Manning's defense.

"The court finds no evidence of prosecutorial misconduct," Lind said.
