The only ones 'aiding the enemy' and creating even more, were the bush admin and all the Neo-Cons around them add in fox so called news and many other actual so called journalists.

Judge rules on documents in Manning case
Jan. 17, 2013 - Prosecutors must prove U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning knew he was aiding the enemy when he turned over documents to WikiLeaks, a military judge ruled.

Army Col. Denise Lind, who is overseeing Manning's pretrial hearings at Fort Meade, Md., also said in her ruling Wednesday that Manning's defense can present evidence that the former intelligence analyst chose to leak documents that wouldn't harm national security, The Washington Post reported.

A court-martial is scheduled for June for the 25-year-old Manning, charged with leaking sensitive government cables and other documents to the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, which published them on its website and shared them with media outlets.

Because of Lind's ruling, damage assessments by intelligence agencies after WikiLeaks released the hundreds of thousands of documents will not be admitted into evidence by either side during the court-martial.
