Additional Military Defense Counsel for PFC Manning

I am pleased to announce that MAJ Thomas F. Hurley has joined the Defense team.  PFC Manning personally requested that MAJ Hurley be assigned as one of his two detailed military counsel.  MAJ Hurley was originally detailed to PFC Manning's case in 2010, but was removed once he was assigned to represent SSG Robert Bales.  MAJ Hurley is a skilled and experienced trial lawyer, and I am happy to have him along with CPT Joshua Tooman on the Defense team.
