    Wikileaks founder Julian Assange accused of rape

    Swedish authorities say they have issued an arrest warrant for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, on accusations of rape and molestation.

    The warrant was issued late on Friday, said Karin Rosander, communications head at Sweden's prosecutors' office.

    Swedish police have been trying to contact Mr Assange, but have not yet been able to, she told the BBC.

    Convenient? Or possible? Well, when the judge decides to extradite him to the US, we'll know.

    Very possible.

    Re: Wikileaks founder Julian Assange accused of rape

    Smear campaign.


    Why?

    Rape, molestation OR HARASSMENT.


    The OR HARASSMENT is the key here. You don't rape, molest, BUT it may be simply a case of harrassment. Sorry harrassment is a far cry from rape and molestation.

    I'm not a big fan of what this man is doing but this is very suspicious in its wording and timing.

    I'm thinking if there is an alleged victim it was set up, and the fact that it is in Sweden is even more suspicious. Sweden would never go along with a set up, so the set up was created in Sweden to make it look less suspicious.

    My government is sounding more and more like the Mossad every day. Wo to anyone that stands in their way!

    This sounds ridiculously paranoid.

    The pentagon might want to do something to silence the guy (although that's kind of like locking the barn door after the horse has escaped).
    I do not believe Obama would go along with such a plot.
    If he's convicted of sexual harrassment, so what?
    Is that going to stop him from running wikileaks?
    Even if he's convicted of rape- guilty or not- so what?
    How does that stop him? Seriously.

    If they really wanted to silence him, they'd just kill him. The end.
    It's not like our government- and all governments- haven't done it before.

    There's always the possibility that he raped someone, or date-raped someone, or that there was some sexual misunderstanding between him and somebody, or that somebody he had sexual relations with is now accusing him of sexual misconduct in an effort to gain something- fame, money from a civil suit.
    He is a man, after all. And he is a wealthy man, after all.
    So any of the above are possible; likely, actually. Far more likely than a government set-up, which wouldn't stop him anyway, at least not for long.
    Hell, they have internet access in prison; and even convicted rapists don't serve much time. The average convicted rapist serves only a few years. He'd be out again and leaking government documents before Obama's second term was up.

    Usually when people get famous they attract more charges.

    It's the way of nature.

    Not if you know anything about how this kind of thing works. I have first hand accounts from a family member that worked in this area, and you woudl be appalled at what our government has done in the last 50 years that we don't officially know about. And after 911 this kind of thing has been ramped up.

    The pentagon? Are you kidding? There's another entity that specializes in this kind of thing. Too many loose lips in the pentagon anyway.

    Again your ignorance is amusing. The president won't be even close to this to protect him in case it backfires. He may even be out of the loop.

    It may not stop him but he could be incarcerated for an extended period of time. It can also be a warning to him that if he doesn't stop more prevasive and permanent measures will be on the way.

    It makes more sense to discredit him as an individual as if he dies someone else just takes his place. If you discredit him he may loose all credibility and his information an asserations won't be taken seriously.

    See above.

    You're assuming a speedy trial of course. With media scrutiny the trial preparation would be even more lengthy. This think could go on for years.

    This was my thought. Let's face it, when he is arrested, there will be a trial, and he will have a chance to clear his name. That is what trials are for. It's a serious charge and has to be taken seriously.
