WikiLeaks Suspect Returns To Military Court In Md.

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - An Army private accused in the biggest leak of government secrets in U.S. history is returning to a military courtroom in Maryland, seeking dismissal of 10 of the 22 charges he faces.
    
The pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning begins Wednesday morning at Fort Meade.
    
The 24-year-old intelligence analyst is charged with aiding the enemy by causing hundreds of thousands of classified war logs and diplomatic cables to be published on the secret-sharing website WikiLeaks in 2009 and 2010.
    
The defense claims the government used unconstitutionally vague language in eight counts charging Manning with unauthorized possession and disclosure of classified information.
    
His lawyers say two other counts falsely allege that Manning lacked authorization to access computers linked to a Defense Department network used for classified information.
