Manning was held for nine months at the maximum-security
brig in Quantico, Va. He was confined in a windowless cell at the maximum
security for 23 hours, sometimes forced to sleep and stand naked.
Brig officials argue those steps were taken to prevent him
from hurting himself or others, according to the AP. Officials testified he was
kept in the 6-by-8 foot cell because they considered Manning a suicide risk.
Manning is facing 22 charges and life in prison in the
WikLeaks case. The trial starts in March.
