Bradley Manning, the Army private accused of leaking a massive cache of classified information to WikiLeaks, testified for the first time since he was arrested in May 2010.

According to CNN, Manning said at one point during his military custody, he considered suicide. CNN adds:

“He first discussed his arrest in Iraq and his transfer to Kuwait where he was held for a nearly two months before being transferred to the brig at Marine Base Quantico in Virginia in July 2010.

“He said he once passed out due to the heat. He also said not being allowed to know what was happening to him or in the outside world was distressing. He contemplated suicide in Kuwait.

“‘My world just shrunk to Camp Arafjon, to that cage,’ Manning said. ‘I thought I was going to die in that cage.’
