Hold on for a minute.
Consider the popularity, or should I say infamy, of Mr. Assange during the past 3 months or so. It began with the giant leak of Afghan war documents. Then the Iraq War logs were revealed. Those ended up being nothing compared to the 250,000 US Embassy Diplomatic Cables that were recently released.
The point is, Julian Assange has had a lot of dirt thrown in his face for these “internet crimes” since the beginning. A few days after the Afghan War logs were leaked, a news story spread about Julian Assange’s allegations of rape. He got his own page on INTERPOL’s website. Recently, the cables were released. Shortly after that, Mr. Assange was arrested.
The order of these events happening makes me suspicious. Are they just a coincidence? I think not.
Sure, the media has been telling everybody that Julian Assange’s arrest had nothing to do with Wikileaks.
But I’m convinced that it had everything to do with Wikileaks.
First off, the proximity of events between Wikileaks leaks and sex-crime-related affairs is too close to be ignored. INTERPOL is just using allegations of sex crime to cover up the real reason for arrest. An article on INTERPOL’s website gives suspicious evidence for this (article here):
“INTERPOL has made public the Red Notice, or international wanted persons alert, for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the request of Swedish authorities who want to question him in connection with a number of sexual offences.”
Note carefully that INTERPOL identifies Mr. Assange as “WikiLeaks founder.” That kind of labeling doesn’t show up with other prisoners on INTERPOL’s website, so why must it show up with Assange? Very suspicious.
The point is, Julian Assange is being arrested on behalf of Wikileaks, not sex crimes. The “sex crimes” thing was just thrown in there so that INTERPOL wouldn’t face so much controversy. Ironically, this is another example of how government is so flawed. Wikileaks is trying to present government flaws through dissemination of media.
Interesting combination here.
