FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — The defense has rested in a hearing to determine whether the Army intelligence agent blamed for the biggest leak of secrets in U.S. history should be court-martialed.

Pfc. Bradley Manning's lawyers called only two witnesses Wednesday: a sergeant who saw one of Manning's fits of rage in Baghdad and a captain whom the young private served under in Iraq.

The hearing was recessed for closing arguments Thursday.

Manning is accused of releasing a trove of classified military and diplomatic information to the WikiLeaks website. If court-martialed and then found guilty of aiding the enemy, he could face up to a life sentence.
