Posted on 12/18/2010 8:28:14 PM PST by Opinionatedtoday
LONDON Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks who was released from a British jail late last week, is facing a new challenge: the leak of a 68-page confidential Swedish police report that sheds new light on the allegations of sexual misconduct that led to Mr. Assanges legal troubles.

The Swedish or American government, while alleging that printing information is leaking, is itself leaking. And, it is attempting to pollute the pool of potential jurors and influence public opinion, in advance of the case being heard.
Are these women prostitutes?
He’s so slimey, I can’t imagine a woman not having to be paid to have sex with him.
It's his celebrity status. Have you had a look at Mick Jagger or Keith Richards (at any age). Why have women been throwing themselves at those guys for forty years??
Some answer like that.
Suck it up Assman.
Charge the man with treason even though he wasn’t an American citizen?How dumb does this become?The Chinese can do the same to Americans!
This man is a miserable excuse for excrement. But these charges stink almost as much as he.
Manning is the traitor; Assange is a foreign spy.
Nope,he’s a reporter who let the cat out of the bag.Do we put reporters in jail for big stories?The us government just got embarrassed.
Assange and followers revealed military/defense secrets of the U.S. and our allies, thus opening up certain facilities and operations to terrorism and destruction.
These are acts of “terrorism” and/or “war”. Since the U.S. is in a war in Afghanistan, people who aid our enemies are guilty of “aiding and abetting” hostile forces fighting the U.S.
You don’t need to be an American citizen to be charged with that (i.e. enemy combatants). We have long-arm statutes to deal with these people, and also criminal laws as backups (theft of propriety secrets, etc).
China charges Americans with espionage all the time. So did/does the Soviet Union/Russia, and No. Korea. It’s a catch-all to get favors, prisoner exchanges, propaganda mileage, etc.
You have to know the game in order to understand it.
As a former card-carrying reporter who had access to classified information both here and in Vietnam, I’m all for jailing American reporters who endanger our country by publishing classified information, and throwing their editors in jail along with them.
There is a difference between “reporting” and “treason” but too many people have failed to understand that there is “responsible” reporting and “irresponsible reporting” that can and has cost the lives of American troops and covert operatives (Welch, CIA, Station Chief, Greece).
Time to grow up and realize that we are in several wars for our existence, and those who release certain types of information are aiding the enemy - plain and simple.

I read about this two weeks ago, so it’s not too new news. Anyway, the guy deserves this and much more... I hope Obama gets around to doing something to make an example of this jerk.
I’m so sick of hearing this jerks name...Can’t we get the NSA to put info on his website that he Blasphemed Mohammed or Islam or burned a Koran then airdrop the prissy jerk into IRAN??
how do we know that the ‘leaked’
State dept cables are legit?
0bama and the State dept could be lying
As was stated on the first breaking news FR-thread announcing the rape charges against Assange; radical left meets redical feminism and clash.
However, the rape laws in Sweden are what they are, and in all likelihood Assange will be brought to trial.
Looks like they caught him with his pants down
Despite the fact he’s an Aussie, the guy embodies all the we’ve come to associate with ‘Euro-weenies’. Hopefully his weenie will seal his fate.
I know the feds keep telling us how harmful the leaks are, but are they really? I mean who didn't know that we collect intelligence at the UN? That diplomats may have less than diplomatic things to say about other diplomats in private? Maybe I'm out of the loop, but does most of the stuff released so far seem definitely anti-earth shattering?
