Officer recommended Manning's removal from computer room

By CNN Senior National Security Producer Charley Keyes

FORT MEADE, Maryland (CNN) - An officer who supervised the Army private accused in the biggest intelligence leak in U.S. history said Sunday she had recommended his removal from a secure computer room after he scuffled with a fellow soldier.

Capt. Casey Fulton, the first witness on the third day of Bradley Manning's preliminary hearing, said she was concerned by his behavior, and had also recommended that his weapon be taken away.

Manning was back in the Army courtroom Sunday as military prosecutors continued to build their espionage case against the private, who's charged with leaking hundreds of thousands of secret government documents. The preliminary hearing will determine whether he faces a full military trial.
