    A brilliant piece I think. I don't think there's anything more to add to this on my part.

    Good piece there.

    We all know that this rape allegation got disproportionat attention because of the leaks...
    Even the girls who accused him for it, dropped the case!

    But good ol' US obeying Sweden picked it up, and dragged him around with it until the US gets enough material to prosecute Assange under espionage law or something.

    It really annoys me that Assange is getting so much attention. I suppose it's natural with him being an obvious figurehead, but regardless of whether he is guilty or not the important thing is spread of information. The cat is truly out of the bag and even if Wikileaks disappeared (which it won't) there would be hundreds of other sites to take its place. Doubtlessly if Assange turned out to be guilty governments and certain newspapers would use it to try and discredit Wikileaks, and some people would probably lap it up.

      I think the article may be spot on; not much to debate here.
