Bradley Manning Supporters Rally at WikiLeaks Grand Jury


ALEXANDRIA, VA - Supporters of an Army private accused of supplying classified documents to the WikiLeaks website are rallying on his behalf as a federal grand jury meets in northern Virginia to investigate the matter.

David House is a founding member of the Bradley Manning Support Network. He has been subpoenaed to testify Wednesday morning at the federal courthouse in Alexandria. The grand jury is considering a criminal case into the leaks of classified documents to WikiLeaks.

Manning's supporters say the grand jury's subpoenas amount to harassment and persecution of people who support government transparency.

Prosecutors have complained in court papers that WikiLeaks supporters have delayed the investigation by refusing to cooperate with routine requests.

Manning is being held at Fort Leavenworth while the military conducts its investigation.
