Wikileaks’ Julian Assange Was the Target of a Dirty Trick — NY Times Reports (in So Many Words)

Saturday, August 21st, 2010

So reporteth the Times:

LONDON — Julian Assange, founder of the whistle-blower Web site WikiLeaks who has been embroiled in a fight with the Pentagon over the recent release of classified documents, briefly became the focus of new attention on Saturday when Swedish prosecutors sought him for questioning on rape allegations — then quickly said the accusations were unfounded. — Full story here.

Wikileaks said in a blog post earlier than the Times’ breaking story:

On Saturday 21st of August, we have been made aware of rape allegations made against Julian Assange, founder of this project and one of our spokespeople.

We are deeply concerned about the seriousness of these allegations. We the people behind WikiLeaks think highly of Julian and and he has our full support.

While Julian is focusing on his defenses and clearing his name, WikiLeaks will be continuing its regular operations.

The WORD to Wikileaks: Release the Kracken, all 15,000 tenacles.
