Accused WikiLeaks source Bradley Manning is inching toward a trial and is due in court for a hearing on December 16, more than a year and a half since he was arrested and charged with aiding the enemy. Manning’s lawyer said in a blog post today that the hearing is “to evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of the government’s case as well as to provide the defense with an opportunity to obtain pretrial discovery.” Related: Bradley Manning’s Army of One [NYM]
