Julian Assange: When Sex By Surprise Is Whatever You Want It To Be

by | 14th, December 2010

JULIAN Assange is in jail suspected of rape.  Depending on your politics, you will either think Assange’s incarceration has something to do with Wikileaks’s leaking of US cables, or are you on the side of the women who claim he assaulted them? Perhaps you just like a good story?

Fact plays second fiddle to the media narrative. CNN has helped this along by conducting a poll of 2,000 Britons. We now know that 44 percent of us think the tape allegations are just means of getting Assange to the United States. Another 44 percent believe Britain should extradite Assange to Sweden to face questioning.

Will Assange be denied bail? Readers may care to note that Shrien Dewani, another big media thread, has been granted bail for his alleged role in the murder of a Swedish national in south Africa. If bail is not forthcoming, Operation Payback will hit the web. One site thought to be in the line of fire by the Anonymous campaign is HMRC.

And they are not supported by Assange. Judith Miller – and what irony – is on the phone:

He told me that he did not order the attacks and that he was surprised by them,” Stephens said. “He said he was not happy about the cyber-attacks…because he believes in openness and free speech.”

It Girl Jemima Khan is on the side of Assange. She will post bail:

If WikiLeaks is a terrorist organisation, as New York congressman Pete King stated, and if its founder, Julian Assange, is prosecuted for espionage, the future of investigative journalism everywhere is in jeopardy, as is our right as citizens to be told the truth.

Fox News is on Assange’s side:

Meanwhile, Julian Assange, a man found guilty of no crime, tells us:

We now know that Visa, Mastercard and Paypal are instruments of US foreign policy. It’s not something we knew before. I am calling on the world to protect my work and my people from these illegal and immoral acts.”

Adding grist to the mill of a conspiracy is Assange’s brief Mark Stephens:

We have heard from the Swedish authorities that there has been a secretly impaneled grand jury in Alexandria (Virginia).”

You can join a campaign to free Julian Assange here, and on Article 19.
