Hunter & The Hunted: Julian Assange Accused of Rape

Is this how black-ops* are run in the Age of Obama?

1. Receive thousands of pages of stolen classified documents and publish them on the Internet? Nothing can be done!

2. Anonymous accusations of rape and molestation? We Will Not Rest Until You Are Brought To Justice!
Swedish authorities say they have revoked an arrest warrant that had alleged rape against the founder and editor of the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.

Assange is "no longer wanted" and "is not suspected of rape," Chief Prosecutor Eva Finne said in a statement posted on the agency's official website Saturday. He is also no longer arrested in absentia, the statement said.

The arrest warrant filed Friday had also mentioned a molestation charge, but molestation is not a crime punishable behind bars in Sweden

Earlier, Karin Rosander, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office, said Assange was arrested in absentia Friday night, and faced charges in relation to two separate instances, but she didn't have more detail about when the alleged crimes occurred or who the alleged victims are.
I don't know what the hell's going on here. Can it really be the case that the US government can't arrest Assange for receiving stolen property and publishing classified documents, so it is forced to rely on lame rape accusations? Why not just plant a dead boy in his bed, if that's the way you're going to play it? And spare me the "he leads a nomadic existence, so we can't find him" excuse. He was in London a couple weeks ago talking to the international media! The CIA doesn't have any agents in London - maybe a "covert operative" in the Valerie Plame mode? - who couldn't hot foot it over to the press conference and then follow him around after that?

Assange isn't impregnable and he isn't a 21st century journalist/super-genius. He's a punk from a long line of punks who have worked against US interests in wartime. Back in the old days we called these people "spies" or "enemy agents" and treated them as such. There's no reason, beyond a lack of will, that Assange cannot be treated as an enemy.

*sorry, multi-cultural ops.
