Mr.Assange, Enemy of the State

I know it’s a cheesy title but it appears that WikiLeaks along with Mr.Assange have been declared enemies of the US.

If you read a bit in, it does not look like this is directed at WikiLeaks or Mr.Assange. I am thinking that it is to give a stronger legal stance if they have another Mr.Manning.

‘ 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. ‘

Although I don’t think this is a good thing if Mr.Assange ever sets foot on US soil or near an unmarked van.
