It seems the suits behind the scenes have found a way to get at the wikileaks founder - by having him accused of raping two women (who know each other) at their houses on two different occasions.
Twenty dollars says that he really did rape two women. He is not a journalist. He is a hacker with a website. Big difference. Hackers are criminals to begin with. Who is to say that he didn't get caught up in his celebrity status?
Now he is a rapist, hacker, and killer.

It's funny how any time some one claims to have some dirt on America every foreigner out there jumps online spewing hatred to America and praising scum like this guy.
I've seen more predigest on here from most of you non Americans than I've seen hard facts about any of your claims/beliefs. Just remember, all of your governments are just as "bad" as Americas and you should start fixing the problems with your own country before trying to fix those of America.
