FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) - An intelligence analyst who worked with Pfc. Bradley Manning in Iraq has testified at his court-martial over giving a massive amount of material to WikiLeaks.

Jihrleah Showman said Wednesday that Manning had access to a lot of classified information but he wasn't allowed to look at it all.

Manning faces charges including aiding the enemy, which carries a potential life sentence.

He says he gave the material to the secret-spilling website WikiLeaks because he wanted Americans to see the truth about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Shortly before his arrest, Manning was disciplined for punching Showman in the face in what she has described as one of several violent outbursts both before and during their deployment. She did not testify about the punch but could be recalled later.
