    Based on that, rape sounds like a valid description of the charge.
    So, you've rejected the report that comes from Assange's defense attorney, but bought wholesale into the comments of the prosecutor in the case? lulz.

    Here's another article with more details on what happened.

    Ah the spin. No, I don't reject anything. I do not know what happened. I do know that the charge, as described by the persecutor(ie the one who knows about the charge) could be accurately described as rape. That is why I use those big complicated words like "if", because I do not know if he is guilty. Unlike those who are assuming based on what they want to believe, I am willing to let the process play itself out.

    What I read in there shows the accusations by the lawyers. What I posted had actual comment by one of the gals that he suppposedly raped plus it had the police report obtained by the daily mail here.

    And how is Yahoo News any different from AoL News?

    Yeah, based on what the prosecutor says it would sound like rape. But then that is thier job isn't it? To make the defendant sound guilty of what ever it is they are charging the person with?

    I have zero idea whether he is guilty or innocent. Do I believe that the U.S. has meddled in this situation, however? Possibly. And, I don't believe that these incidents, as described in the Daily Mail article, would be considered rape in the U.S. Bad, boorish behavior? Possibly.

    I do not see the word "if" in your previous post.

    It was an implied if.

    You may have missed all the posts where I stated that "if" he was guilty of a crime he should be punished. Catz has seen them, since I had to actually repeat all them so she could see the word. She knows better but chose the dishonest route.

    Yahoo news was carrying the AP news story. The AP is a reliable source, AoL I am less certain of.

    Yeah, based on what the prosecutor says it would sound like rape. But then that is thier job isn't it? To make the defendant sound guilty of what ever it is they are charging the person with?
    But the prosecutor is the person who made the charge and actually knows what the charges are based on.

    Seems to me that if you are less certain of weather they are reliable or not the benefit of the doubt may be in order? You are of course entitled to your opinion, just saying.

    And based on the police reports provided by the daily mail rape is indeed a misnomer. I would even have to say that the use of the word "rape" is really nothing more than an appeal to emotion. Something that is essentially used in any court proceedings.
