    FORT MEADE, Md. — A military judge cleared the way Wednesday for a member of the team that raided Osama bin Laden's compound to testify in the trial of an Army private charged in a massive leak of US secrets.

    Col. Denise Lind ruled for the prosecution during a pretrial hearing for Pfc. Bradley Manning at Fort Meade, near Baltimore.

    The government said the witness, presumably a Navy SEAL, collected digital evidence showing that an associate of bin Laden provided the al Qaeda leader with documents Manning has acknowledged sending to the WikiLeaks website.

    Defense attorneys argued that proof of receipt isn't relevant to whether Manning aided the enemy.
