- Background & Updates on the Extradtion to Sweden Hearing
- U.S. Military refers all charges against Bradley Manning to Court Martial
- U.S. Grand Jury on WikiLeaks
The secret U.S. Grand Jury on WikiLeaks has been convened in Alexandra, Virginia, U.S.A. for over a year. It appears that they are still at the "fishing expedition" stage (yet to force immunity, take the right to remain silent away and threaten jail for supbeonaed witnesses). This pace is probably in relation to wait and see what was going to happen to Bradley Manning at his pre-trial at Ft. Meade (where the Judge was also from the same U.S. Justice Dept conducting the Grand Jury on WikiLeaks, go figure?) and what happens in London on Feb 1 & 2 to Julian Assange.
