  •  Yeah, funny how they wouldn't interview him... (1+ / 0-)

    ...for the "investigation" without extraditing him first. Almost as if the "investigation" was an excuse for the extradition. Naw, couldn't be. No crusader is ever charged with a crime.

    •  the lengths the Assange defenders go to (0+ / 0-)

      1. It's not a bout etraditing him not at that point. Assange forced that on himself

      2. The idea that Assange should have special treatment is so asinine it still leaves me speechless. The apologists for both Assange and Snowden talk about hypocrisy while committing a huge amount of hypocrisy.

      •  Try answering a reality-based question (0+ / 0-)

        BEFORE he took refuge in the Ecuadorian embassy, while waiting for England to rule on extradition, he offered to let the Swedish police interrogate him. They refused. They wouldn't do it without first getting him into their power in Sweden.

        I ask you one simple question: why wouldn't they question him in England? Try answering that reality-based question if you want any respect at all. But of course you don't, or you wouldn't libel people whose histories and opinions on sexual assault you don't even know.

          if there is a warrant for questioning you go to the police not the other way around.

          Assange's 'offer' was at best arrogant and at worst a nonstarter.

          I ask you only this simple question 'Why won't he face his accusers and the charges?'

          Answer: Because he knows he's guility
