The charges Assange is facing in Sweden were invented by Sweden to have a legal means to detain him, so that the US could get him extradited.
Assange doesn't play games. He's got a perfect track record so far.
Therefor, I'm inclined to take him seriously.

According to RT:
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange would leave his Ecuadorian embassy refuge and accept extradition to the US if whistleblower Chelsea Manning was granted clemency, the media organization has suggested.
I thought Obama was already considering this. That is a bold move!
I'd love to say more, but a bit speechless.

sigh - does the US have an arrest warrant ?
sweden does - why is that ?
Some fabricated rape charges wasn't it? Or something like that.
But more than one high ranking US official has said they would request extradition if they could get it from Ecuador, which they had said no anyway, so why bother with the warrant?
They damn well knew he wouldn't set foot in the US until some kind of agreement was made.
