A trial date will be determined after a military judge is detailed to the case. According to the statement, “that military judge will set the date for Manning’s arraignment, motion hearings and trial.”
Serving as an Army intelligence analyst serving in Baghdad in late 2009 to early 2010, Manning had access to classified military and State Department files.
He is accused of having provided Wikileaks with hundreds of thousands of classified military action reports from Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as 260,000 classified State Department cables.
Manning faces 22 charges, including aiding the enemy, wrongfully causing intelligence to be published on the Internet knowing that it is accessible to the enemy, theft of public property or records, and transmitting defense information.
