    Is Karl Rove Behind the Prosecution of Julian Assange?

    An interesting conspiracy theory has arisen over Wikileaks' Julian Assange's problems with rape allegations in Sweden. It seems that the two women in question were working in a honey trap operation at the behest
    of Karl Rove.
    It has already been proven that at least one of the women had CIA connections, but Karl Rove? Not sure that the conspiracy extends that far. However, knowing Rove, it is a possibility, as that is his modus operandi. On the other hand, tinfoil may be selling like hot cakes these days.

    With that in mind, please answer the poll.

    Glenn Reynolds responded to this in the best way possible:

    Chumps! More disinformation! Assange was Rove-Cheney’s tool. They manipulated the leak, which really hurts their enemies — notice that we’re learning things that mostly embarrass the State Department, Michael Moore, and the Chinese — and they let lefties lionize Assange, and now that the hook is set the other shoe’s dropping. It’s all so obvious what’s going on and. . . . oh, somebody’s knocking at my door; strange, it’s so late at night. Gotta go.

    That is one of the things that makes this whole case smell fishy to me, one of the women have CIA ties. Weather Karl Rove is behind it all I have no idea, wouldn't surprise me, but I won't say yes or no until everything gets settled and even then there may be doubts. Since you didn't put "no idea" or equivalent in the poll choices I'm afraid I can't vote. Sorry.

    Sounds hilarious. Oh, it was written in the Huffington Post. That must be why.

    Whatcha mean, "whether Karl Rove is behind it"? Of course he's behind it.

    Bush and Cheney are in on it, too.

    I mean, if Bush, Cheney and Rove can pull off 9/11, they can pay some internet dork to expose all this classified information.

    Re: Is Karl Rove Behind the Prosecution of Julian Assange?

    So.... what was the reasoning of deciding Rove was behind it other than being a lying manipulative sleaze bag?

    The rush to smear Assange's rape accuser - War Room - Salon.com
    These are solid accusations.

    Actually, as far as I can tell, the only source for that claim is an August Counterpunch article by Assange fanboys (seriously, they recast him as Neo of "The Matrix") Israel Shamir and Paul Bennett. Here's the most damning evidence Shamir and Bennett have compiled against Assange's accuser:

    1) She's published "anti-Castro diatribes" in a Swedish-language publication that, according to an Oslo professor, Michael Seltzer (who?), is "connected with Union Liberal Cubana led by Carlos Alberto Montaner," who reportedly has CIA ties. Let me repeat that: She has been published in a journal that is connected with a group that is led by a guy with CIA ties. Says this one guy.

    2) "In Cuba she interacted with the feminist anti-Castro group Las damas de blanco (the Ladies in White). This group receives US government funds and the convicted anti-communist terrorist Luis Posada Carriles is a friend and supporter." That link goes to an English translation of a Spanish article noting that at a march last spring, Posada "wander[ed] unleashed and un-vaccinated along Calle Ocho in Miami, marching alongside" -- wait for it -- "Gloria Estefan in support of the so-called Ladies in White." Apparently, it's "an established fact" that Posada and the Ladies also share a shady benefactor, which means he should clearly be called a "friend" of the organization, and this is totally relevant to the rape charges against Julian Assange, because the accuser once interacted with them in some manner.

    3) The accuser is a known feminist who once wrote a blog post about getting revenge on men, and "was involved in Gender Studies in Uppsala University, in charge of gender equality in the Students' Union, a junior inquisitor of sorts."
