US military spokespeople announced today new restrictions on media coverage of the pretrial of army whistleblower Bradley Manning, in proceedings several reporters have called more restrictive than Guantanamo Bay military tribunals.

Language used during the announcement was perceived by some as threatening.

Manning is being charged by the military for his involvement with massive leaks of Afghan and Iraqi war reports, US diplomatic cables, and other classified videos and records to the transparency website Wikileaks.

KBOO reporter Jenn Chavez spoke with Nathan Fuller of the Bradley Manning Support Network for more information on the new rules.
