Bradley Manning’s Trial, Day 6 (Live Updates)
6:47 PM EST Court is in recess until Monday. I’ll have more coverage of today’s proceedings tomorrow morning, especially what happened with the defense’s objection to the sample Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) the prosecutors had admitted as evidence and had Cpt. Thomas Cherepko, a Brigade Automations Officer in Manning’s unit, testify about.
4:46PM EST Manning’s unit did not secure an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) copy when the access privileges were limited, despite the fact that it could have been needed for court martial.
4:45PM EST Coombs objected to introduction of sample AUP because it is different from what Manning signed; and three counts against him hinge upon the terms in AUP.
4:38PM EST Prosecutors are trying to use an Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) that Manning did not sign to elicit testimony about terms he had to follow.
4:01PM EST The judge allowed testimony on the rules and regulations from the Acceptable Use Policy for the information system Manning used, but which he’s not charged with violating.
3:06PM EST Jon LaRue: “Range & attack approaches,” “sensitive aviation info,” and “sensor capabilities” were the tactics, techniques & procedures (TTP) revealed in the “Collateral Murder” video. LaRue on “Collateral Murder” release: “Adversarial forces who know TTPs could be able to anticipate Army aviation operations”. LaRue on “Collateral Murder” video: Sensor capabilities are a part of the puzzle. “Solving the puzzle could make it easier for any adversary”. LaRue on “Collateral Murder” video: The actual information isn’t classified. But “coupling video footage along with the data makes the information sensitive “. [cont’d]
