Granted I believe

Hague threatening to storm the Ecuadorian embassy? For a man of his wit and intelligence, he does some moronic things and that is certainly one of them. We really do need need to make enemies of the entire of South America and come across as a bully. No idea what on earth he was thinking of there

The controversial former diplomat Craig Murray reveals one of the ladies in the Assange case, the hackers Anonymous cause trouble for the Ministry of Justice.

That and Galloway needs to think before he speaks/types.

Hague has said Britain will veto any attempt by the US to extradite Assange from Sweden if the death penalty may be used.

UN panel has demanded UK and Sweden compensate Assange for detaining him so long and stop pressing him until they are further on in their case. Assange's supporters naturally saying it is a moral victory and should be obeyed, UK and Sweden dismissing it as daft, no legal power and until the Arrest Warrant is dropped, UK is obliged to continue seeking to detain him.

What do people think? What does this mean for future cases where someone of interest flees and is UN going to give clarity on how this works?

Wasn't sure whether to post it here or in the Foreign Influence on Politics in America thread . . .

It seems quite clear that Assange isn't even trying to hide the fact that he's personally using Wikileaks to try to sway politics in the United States because of his own grudges. My question is the Russia factor in this; the inherent bias in this state-to-state 'weaponization' of information. It makes me wonder if Wikileaks also receives information that it, for political and agenda-based reasons, doesn't release.

Has Wikileaks just become exactly the kind of biased 'media' tool with an agenda of the kind that it proclaimed to circumvent six years ago . . . or has it really always been?
