  • FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The former security chief at the Quantico, Va., Marine Corps base testified Wednesday that an Army private suspected of leaking U.S. secrets in the WikiLeaks case was kept tightly confined partly because another prisoner had recently committed suicide.

    Marine Col. Robert Oltman spoke at a pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, outside Baltimore. Manning's lawyers are seeking dismissal of all charges, claiming his pretrial confinement in the Quantico brig was excessively harsh.
