    The case was dismissed by the head prosecutor as being idiotic but after political pressure, the system took up the case yet again and that is where we are now. If anything it shows that the Swedish legal system at the moment is highly influenced by politics and especially the right wing US friendly politics. It is not the first time politics has driven a case forward .. the Piratebay comes to mind. Here the Judge hearing the case was a member of an anti-piracy group that had big links to the people accusing the Piratebay founders of wrong doing.... conflict of interest? The high court after much deliberation and "talks" with the political establishment did not think so... go figure.

    This case stinks of a frame job..

    Oh. So, what you're saying is that Obama should have been a mind reader and prevented a problem that hadn't occurred previously?

    No, they don't realize that and will continue to use that as a tool to divert from the Obama record.

    Actually I believe the blame lies with you.

    All of you.

    After 9/11 you were all too ready to hand over your civil rights in return to security.

    And now a monster of a security apparatus with almost a million people have access to Top Secret files, and you wanna blame Obama and Bush? THIS IS WHAT YOU ASKED FOR!

    With a million people having that kind of access, both in Government and some in Private security firms, DID YOU NOT THINK THIS MIGHT BE A PROBLEM?!?!?!

    But go ahead, score your cheap political points, but if you're looking for the blame, you need only look in the mirror.

    Which, this may suprise you, only apply to Americans, or people who break American law on American soil, neither of which apply to Assange.

    As I said that was an extreme example to show that people can indeed be trailed by a country they're not citizens of.
    And as you know people are being extradited to countries they're not citizens of and are judged there all the time.

    No, first they have to prove there is a crime. As of yet there is no proof.
    Not exactly, but they do need to have enough evidence for him to be charged in suspicion of committing a crime.

    No, because they cant. The US State Department cant "issue" arrest warrants.. you should know better..As for blackmailing HAHAH.. now the right wing conspiracy wackos are out again.

    And I have heard that the CIA was behind JFKs assassination.. does not mean it is true.
    Actually he said so himself.

    Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com

    Click on the "Assange threatens 'poison pill' 2:53" video.

    So be careful before you go all out in your labeling of something as a conspiracy theory and make sure you google it first next time.

    Also, reported for the "right wing conspiracy wackos" remark.

    My statement was factually correct. He denied believing 9/11 was an inside job. Let me quote him on how he appeared on the petition:

What happened to me on that tough lesson learned for me, six years ago, I was at a conference, some people came up to me. They said, 'Hey, we represent 9-11 families.' I'm like, 'OK, good to meet you.' They said, 'We need your help. Will you help us?' I said, 'Sure, whatever you want.'

    And then these people, I didn't know what their agenda was, they went and put my name on some abhorrent, crazy language they never showed me

    Still waiting for your proof that the left believes 9/11 is an inside job.

    Here it is, being asked by an Aussie newspaper:



    Julian Assange is the Ned Kelly of the digital age

    If you can't answer these questions, your opinion here is meaningless.
    And I have given you a reasonable answer to the question repeatedly. If you chose not to read my words, I can't help you.

    So, it's settled, then.
