Checking Naomi Wolf’s 8 big problems in the Assange case and coming up empty
I don’t know a great deal about this blogger, so if anyone has information that would tend to suggest he is more or less reliable, please mention it in the comments. I got sent this on Facebook, found it a good read, and thought I’d share, since this has been a subject of fierce debate hereabouts.
Recently I noticed an article posted on Mark Crispin Miller’s blog, ‘News from Underground.’ The article, written by Naomi Wolf, is called ‘Something Rotten in the State of Sweden: 8 Big Problems with the ‘Case’ Against Assange.’ I have followed the Assange case from the beginning. I’ve made discoveries of deleted tweets, poor police work and other irregularities. Because of my findings I was asked to be a witness for the defense in the extradition hearings on the 7th and 8th of February 2011. There are problems in the Assange case, but none of Naomi Wolf’s claims are actually real problems. In fact, Naomi Wolf’s so-called problems are misconceptions and fictitious conspiracy theories.
