Julian Assange and Wikileaks are Officially "Enemies" of the US Military

While we tend to think of Julian Assange as an annoying sex pest who likes the sound of his own voice a little too much, the US has taken things to a whole new level by declaring him an Enemy of the State.

The prestigious title comes via newly acquired documents from the US Air Force, which refers to Assange and his Wikileaks site as enemies of the country. Furthermore, the files, released after a freedom of information request, show that any military personnel found communicating with Assange or Wikileaks will be judged to have been "communicating with the enemy" -- a crime for which the good old US death penalty still applies.

The secret files were compiled as part of a systems analyst based in the UK, who was investigated by the US for possibly speaking with Assange and Wikileaks, an act the investigators regarded as dealing with their enemy. [SMH -- Thanks Darrell]
