The Fall Guy

Julian Assange is cooling his heels in a British prison as he awaits his day in court on Tuesday, December 14. On that day he will discover whether he is to be sent to Sweden to face 4 counts of sexually inappropriate behavior which include an accusation of rape. With Geoffrey Robinson QC, the human rights lawyer par excellence, rumored to be flying back to the Old Bailey to take part in the proceedings it is destined to be compelling reading.

The interesting part of all this is that back in August when these allegations first saw light of day, Assange was in Sweden and the initial charges were dropped and he was allowed to leave the country. Since then Cablegate has happened.

It is an interesting description for the WikiLeaks expos├ęs to be called Cablegate. Does this have something to do with the gated communities that the privileged elites build for themselves? Could it be supposed that if, when reading this you are in such a community, you are part of the problem rather than the solution? But I digress.

Now there is overt political pressure, read Joe Lieberman and Amazon as one example, being placed upon anyone who has an association with WikiLeaks the question does arise, what pressure is being placed upon Sweden? Unfortunately there are no leaks on this subject.

But as Assange does is porridge, presumably sans an internet connection, the infant terrible website keeps drip feeding its selected MSM outlets with juicy tidbits.

I mean just how dumb are our political masters? Do they really think that WikiLeaks is just one person? Do they think that if they chop off one hydra head another 100 won’t take its place?

It is the problem that got them into this mess in the first place. Whilst they continue to dissemble be assured the truth will come out eventually. And as to Julian Assange, the fall guy, I wish you all the best of British luck.
