The court-martial of Bradley Manning, the central figure in a massive leak of government documents has started and is expected to run all summer.
Former Military Prosecutor David J.R. Frakt told the Associated Press recently that he cannot remember a situation where there was such a high degree of civilian interest, people not affiliated with the military, having intense and passionate interest in the outcome of a case.
However the trial has become so secretive that it allows the public almost no insight into what's really going on in the courtroom.
