    I'm not saying it isn't true but it's awful convenient, that the warrant is for something that doesn't necessarily need a lot of evidence.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    In a criminal court, sex crimes are among the most difficult to prove.
    That's why most go unreported.
    Civil court is a different matter.

    The arrest warrant has already been withdrawn by the swedes..
    Then it is probably as I surmised; some sexual/romantic misunderstanding or tête-à-tête that went awry.
    People have drama. Even famous/notorious people.
    Especially famous/notorious people.

    Yeah, because the hoi polloi having access to all the facts is a bad, bad thing.
    It's the duty of politicians to keep this dangerous information secret from the unwashed masses, who can't handle such knowledge.

    Under a democratic procedure....freedom of speech gives Assange the right to do that, and as citizens our lack of knowledge about this information should not be abused by the government under current laws and guidlines.

    There is NO excuse for covering up innocent deaths.

    Arrest warrant for Assange dropped - Europe - Al Jazeera English
    Swedish prosecutors have cancelled an arrest warrant issued for the founder of controversial whistleblower website WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.

    well that was a short lived story
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    I understand, I'm just saying that it's real convenient for that to be the case.
    Not saying it wasn't true though.
