Gotcha. So we believe what Assange says about himself, but the women who accused him are lying to get him in trouble because you know, he didn’t call them back. Do you even hear yourself talk? You sound like every other rape apologist out there, and doing it for the fair-haired boy of the smash-it-all crowd doesn’t make it better.

I believe Greenwald’s review of the case:

“Perhaps most disturbingly of all, Swedish law permits extreme levels of secrecy in judicial proceedings and oppressive pre-trial conditions, enabling any Swedish-US transactions concerning Assange to be conducted beyond public scrutiny. Ironically, even the US State Department condemned Sweden’s “restrictive conditions for prisoners held in pretrial custody”, including severe restrictions on their communications with the outside world.:
