Witness In Manning Case Testified In Secret

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) – A government witness has given testimony about the value of some classified documents leaked by Army Pfc. Bradley Manning to WikiLeaks.
Defense counterintelligence official Danny Lewis testified Tuesday in a closed session just before the prosecution rested its case. Prosecutors offered the evidence to support theft charges against the former intelligence analyst.
The judge refused to certify Lewis as an expert on the value of information to foreign intelligence services. But she allowed him to testify about the value of certain documents under certain conditions, which were classified and not revealed to the public.
Lewis' testimony was given in closed court to protect classified information.
Prosecutor Maj. Ashden Fein says Lewis testified about the value of leaked Iraq and Afghanistan war logs and Guantanamo Bay detainee assessment records.
