I don't know how many of you are familiar with Wikileaks or what your viewpoints are on it, but something very interesting is just now making news. Apparently, the founder of Wikileaks is being accused by Swedish authorities of raping a woman and molesting another. To me, this reeks of something politically motivated and here's why. The United States is rather ticked off with Wikileaks right now over the release of 70,000+ classified documents (and other assorted material) which they claim damage national security. Furthermore, Wikileaks is promising another 15,000+ documents in the near future. I personally support Wikileaks releasing this material. We need a good look into these wars and these documents are providing that much needed look. I guess the encryption key for the 'insurance.aes256' file Wikileaks posted some time back may actually get released after-all. Anyhow, the Untied States has been exploring possible legal options against Julian Assange since the release. They have stated they want to 'limit his travel' at the very least because Julian is a pure nomad, country hopping as it were. To me, this reeks of something politically motivated. The charges are of the worst possible kind, the kind that haunt you even if you are proven innocent. This reeks of character assassination and I believe is one method they're currently employing to discredit Wikileaks as a whole. What do you guys think about this whole situation?
