Witnesses for the USG that the Court ruled allowed closed session who have stipulations of testimony | US v Pfc. Manning

This list contains the names of witnesses the Court ruled would be allowed to testify in a closed session. The Court also ruled that redacted unclassified versions of their testimony would be expeditiously made available to the public. Due to the recent development some of these witnesses have had their testimony entered as stipulations of testimony.
