  •  The UK, Ecuador and Sweden (10+ / 0-)

    are supposedly working out a "deal" wherein "promises are made" that guarantee Mr Assange will not be extradited to the US should the UK make that guarantee and Sweden follows up with similar sweet promises.

    There are currently 50 British police officers at every fire escape and window of the Ecuadorian embassy. Nice pressure applied there.

    But, shit happens. Assange will no doubt be absconded and renditioned to the US once he leaves the safety of political asylum.

    The case in Sweden has been fumbled from the beginning... and the politicization of it when Ny got involved only worsened that.

    Not only that, the policewoman who took the...

    ...initial statements is a friend of Ardins and should have stepped aside. She also failed to tape them, in violation of police procedures, so the initial statements cannot be examined for contradictions.

    And yet, despite multiple lies from police and prosecutors, multiple violations of Swedish legal procedures and multiple witnesses who cast doubt on the women's stories (detailed in the link in my sig), some people insist that anyone who points these things out is "smearing" Ardin and Wilén
