Manning’s 1,001 day detention ruled “reasonable” length
Last Sunday marked the 1,000th day Pfc. Bradley Manning had spent in military custody without trial. In an argument brought in front of a pretrial hearing in Fort Meade Monday, Manning's defense attempted to see the soldier's charges dropped on the grounds that his lengthy pretrial detention violated his constitutional rights. However, Judge Colonel Denise Lind ruled that Manning's detention period has been "reasonable."
