A military prosecutor is questioning the Army private charged with sending hundreds of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks.

A pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning resumed Friday at Fort Meade, Md. Manning was being cross-examined by Maj. Ashden Fein.

Manning testified Thursday in support of a defense motion claiming his confinement for nine months at a Marine Corps brig in Quantico, Va., was so harsh his case should be dismissed.

It was the first time he spoke publicly since his arrest in May 2010.

Besides being classified "maximum custody," Manning was subjected to additional restraints during his nine months at Quantico because he was on suicide watch or considered a risk to himself or others. Commanders maintained the extra restrictions despite recommendations by brig psychiatrists that they be eased.
