Washington aims to crush and maybe kill Bradley Manning

With these latest outrageous charges, is Wikileaks also seen as an official “enemy” and therefore could Julian Assange potentially face the death penalty if the US ever got hold of him?

Following an intensive seven-month investigation, the Army on Wednesday filed 22 additional charges against Pfc. Bradley Manning, accused of illegally downloading tens of thousands of classified U.S. military and State Department documents that were then publicly released by WikiLeaks, military officials tell NBC News.

The most serious of the new charges is “aiding the enemy,” a capital offense which carries a potential death sentence.
