FORT MEADE, Md. —

Prosecutors of Army Pfc. Bradley Manning are focusing on the damage done by his release through WikiLeaks of more than 250,000 U.S. diplomatic cables.

The witnesses scheduled to testify at his sentencing hearing Thursday include John Feeley, a State Department deputy assistant secretary who also testified during Manning's trial.

The former intelligence analyst faces up to 136 years in prison for sending the cables and more than 470,000 Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports to the anti-secrecy website.

The government opened its sentencing case Wednesday with testimony that WikiLeaks' publication of the leaked battlefield reports fractured U.S. military relationships with foreign governments and silenced some friendly Afghan villagers.

The government says it will present as many as 20 sentencing witnesses through Aug. 9 before the defense gets its turn.
