Wikileaks and it’s founder Julian Assange have been deemed “enemies of the state” – just as Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups, according to military documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.
In the past, the term “enemy of the state” could be used of those who released classified information to those with which we were at war but, in an age of undeclared war and undefined enemies, it is hard to know what is meant by the term “enemy of the state.”
Glen Greenwald sees the designation as further evidence that “whistleblowing” in the manner of Daniel Ellsberg is not longer seen as nobel, or even as merely criminal, at this point it is considered treason, even when done by a non-American:
The real “enemies” of American “society” are not those who seek to inform the American people about the bad acts engaged in by their government in secret. As Democrats once recognized prior to the age of Obama – in the age of Daniel Ellsberg – people who do that are more aptly referred to as “heroes”. The actual “enemies” are those who abuse secrecy powers to conceal government actions and to threaten with life imprisonment or even execution those who blow the whistle on high-level wrongdoing.
BIG BROTHER, George Orwell 1984 impersonation of a State is a title perfectly fitted to the UNITED STATES government. Heroes are called traitors; the law menaces and pursuits those who denounces high level wrongdoers and call them enemies of the State. And in a state of evilnes and corruption, murders and assasins are called “patriots” and true patriots are called “terrorists” and enemies of the State. And it is true because the state has become in an enemy of the PEOPLE. A fascist state that do not has respect for the truth, the rights of the people. THERE IS NO MORE A government OF the People, BY the People and FOR the People. Lincolns classic definition of a democracy is TOTALLY DEAD. WAKE UP PEOPLE, WAKE UP BEFORE ITS TOO LATE! The monster is going to devour YOU!
