FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) -- A military judge says she wants to see several federal agencies' assessments of the damage caused by WikiLeaks' publication of government secrets.

Army Col. Denise Lind ordered prosecutors during a pretrial hearing Tuesday to provide the documents so she can decide whether they should be turned over to Pfc. Bradley Manning's defense lawyers.

Manning is being court-martialed for allegedly giving the anti-secrecy website a trove of classified documents and video clips.

His attorneys are seeking damage assessments done by the CIA and the Departments of Justice, State and Defense to back up its claim that the leaked documents did no harm to U.S. interests.

Lind says she will rule Wednesday on another defense motion to dismiss all charges against the 24-year-old intelligence analyst.
