For more on the new developments Democracy Now! has Assange's speech as well as an interview with the president emeritus of the CCR and legal advisor to Julian Assange, Michael Ratner. watch: http://youtu.be/e-m8bV9KGVE

Michael Ratner was on Democracy Now! this morning! to talk about the U.S. Air Force counter-intelligence documents that show military personnel who contact WikiLeaks or its supporters may be at risk of being charged with "communicating with the enemy" - a military crime that carries a maximum sentence of death. The designation is the same legal category as al-Qaeda and the Taliban. In this interview Ratner discusses the implications of the newly found documents and the current state of Julian Assange's legal case.We also show the speech Assange addressed towards the UN from the Ecuadorian Embassy.
