Commenting article: US Military Labels Assange, WikiLeaks Enemies Equal to Al Qaeda

The US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States - the same legal category as the al-Qaeda terrorist network and the Taliban insurgency, international media have reported.

Declassified US Air Force counter-intelligence documents, released under US freedom-of-information laws, reveal that military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or WikiLeaks supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy", a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death, The Sydney Morning Herald wrote Thursday.

The documents, some originally classified "Secret/NoForn" - not releasable to non-US nationals - record a probe by the air force's Office of Special Investigations into a cyber systems analyst based in Britain who allegedly expressed support for WikiLeaks and attended pro-Assange demonstrations in London.

The story is about modern USA. As for that poor Assange, he's merely a litmus paper.

Bit over the top this, for all his antics Assange's actions would only destroy the US by using its own words, in other words the US would actually destroy itself (or, at least, its reputation). Al Quieda on the other hand would just destroy the US - literally.

The article says: "The US military has designated Julian Assange and WikiLeaks as enemies of the United States"

Well, not only the United States, but also their allies.

Freedom of information is great, but releasing classified information in fragtments out of contex is completely out of order.

Like dropping a hand grenade in a super market line with the aim of hitting at least one bad guy.
