Testimony in the WikiLeaks case resumes with the second of two Marine Corps brig commanders who ordered strict pretrial confinement of an Army private charged with sending classified information to the anti-secrecy website.

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Denise Barnes is the only witness scheduled Friday. It is the ninth day of Pfc. Bradley Manning's pretrial hearing at Fort Meade. He claims the nine months he spent at the base in Quantico, Va., were so punishing that his case should be dismissed.

When Barnes assumed command in January 2011, Manning had been there six months. She ordered him stripped of his underwear after he remarked that he could use the elastic waistband to kill himself. That led to Manning standing naked at attention, which brought more attention to his case.
