Prosecutors hid reports that clear Manning?

'A US military judge ruled that WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning, 24, will have the right to access documents that prosecutors may have been hiding, which assess the effect of his crime on US national security.
The suspect’s defense lawyer’s claim that prosecutors were hiding reports by government agencies that could help Manning’s case. These reports, including assessments by the State Department, the FBI and the Office of the National Counterintelligence Executive (Oncix), measured the impact that the leaked classified documents had on national security.
Manning was arrested in May 2010 for having given classified government material to WikiLeaks. He faces charges for “aiding the enemy,” which is a capital offense.
The defendant’s lawyer, David Coombs, believes the reports will prove that the release of the documents had no major effect on US national security. He has been requesting access to them for months.'
