Well, score one for all the conspiracy theorists who commented that the charges were fraudulent.

Doesn’t take much to smear a guys name..

A pretty young blond fluttering her eyelids, looking for attention "he touched me here"


You can accuse a innocent man of stealing, eventually he gets over it and eventually society accepts him back.

You can accuse a innocent man of cheating on his wife, eventually he gets over it and eventually society accepts him back.

You accuse an innocent man of sexual harassment, molestation or rape, he never gets over it and society never accepts him back (even if he's proven innocent).

Been haunted by the same girl now for 4 years, through 3 different jobs (soon to be 4). Once your labelled, your labelled for life. So I know what the guy will go through.

If this is indeed a plot (which is very likely IMO) then it has backfired horribly.

It is obvious to everyone with half a kicking brain cell that this is a desperate smear campaign.
All this will do is strengthen support for Wikileaks and weaken what little faith the public has left for the mainstream media.

I say bring it on. Let them do their worst. It will only expose & weaken them further.

Personally I think this was more a matter of the media being what they are... a bunch of ratings-driven, fear-mongering, gossipy companies always looking to be the "first to break the story". Journalists looking to further their careers and make a name for themselves. Dan Rather made a career for himself by being the first to break the story on the JFK assassination. Good thing it was true.

There's a balance they have to find between being the first to break the story, and making sure the story is true.

I feel like, in this case, some mainstream media journalist got a hold of the story through the internet buzz, not investigating into the source (a tabloid), and decided to run with it. And then every other media outlet followed suit.

Well, this is what you get when you are the one who unleashes endless amounts of classified documents. Someone's going to want to ruin your life.

Sadly, Assange now needs to look over his shoulder where ever he goes for the rest of his time on this planet.

We know the truth. The guy is a hero and an enemy of those who want us kept in the dark.

About f*cking time too! And that taking into account the fact it didn't take very long. I hope the women who made the accusations are prosecuted to the full extent of the law, for slandering him AND wasting legal and police resources.


No doubt any paperwork having to do with these women accusing him of rape will be put on the 'bottom of the pile' or shredded after a fake arrest is done with a fake name and such.

This just goes to show it was all staged... Assange is not some celebrity with tons of cash to hand out, so it's not like anyone had anything to gain from accusing him of rape other than the government(s), specifically the US.

I feel bad for the man... I for one have always treated women with respect and to be accused of something such as rape would ruin not only my reputation but very much effect my mentality.

I'm sure this got too him - regardless of what he expects to governments to do to bring him down, this is steeping pretty low...

This is just like the story I posted about a real life friend who was murdered by the FBI for having 'child pornography' on his computer when in reality he did not, he just knew something (I'm fairly sure this was why) that he shouldn't have known. It's sad what extent the government and the powers that be will go to to ruin a person physically and mentally.

Well written buddy.I agree.

I wonder how much media coverage will be devoted to correcting their earlier mistake.
Would be interesting to compare how much time is given to the origional rape story to the correction amongst the MSM.

Sadly I am unable to monitor the news networks at the moment*(busy working)
But I think Julian Assange deserves a full on apology by the news networks who fell for this obvious smear campaign earlier today.

Top people at Sky BBC CNN etc put this rape crap at the top of todays news agenda.

Call yourselves JOURNALISTS?

Hang your heads in shame.
True journos INVESTIGATE their sources.
You lot at the MSM just show what you are TOLD to show.

You MSM state controlled slaves of false perception.
You are not journalists,but state mouth pieces.
Pathetic.

Is it any wonder people are looking elsewhere for proper news???

People are not stupid you know...

Apparently they didn't have any DNA evidence or witness corroboration. You would think the Chief Prosecutor Eva Finne would have determined that there were not enough grounds for the warrant for Assange before it was issued? Makes the prosecuting officials look real stupid.

Is this a sympathy for the Devil ploy?
Or am I over thinking?

Did someone put these gals up to doing this? Is this a tit-for-tat scheme from those behind the scenes?

The guy doesn't even have enough money to buy equipment for his new studio. Hell right now he has a buy 2 get 8 free DVD special. He's not even making money off that.


The sad part about it is that anyone with a brain would presumably determine that rape charges have nothing to do with leaked government documents and any documents coming out in the future should stand on their own. However, TPTB know that all they've gotta do is throw an idea out there and most of the population will use it to judge all things concerning the person who's been targeted. People don't spend time thinking critically anymore and it's not exactly all their fault...they're too damn busy just trying to survive.

The guy is a hero? Well, Assange is for the war in Afghanistan. He just does not approve of the way it is conducted. He does not believe 9/11 was carried out by anyone other than 19 Arabs. He is a 9/11 gatekeeper. He is a limited hangout.

Far from being an enemy of those who want to keep us in the dark about the war, he has exposed merely what everyone ALREADY knew.

Call that a HERO?

But the story WAS true wasn't it? Assange WAS wanted for rape. He had to be for the police to say that he no longer is wanted... so what did the media do wrong here?

I just read that, too, and noticed that everyone in this thread has completely overlooked that little tidbit of information.


The rape charge was dropped, but there's still an investigation going on for that molestation charge.

Did you also notice that the majority (not all) of the people here quickly blamed the United States government? Even though the article said two Swedish females were involved, they completely glossed over who brought up the allegations. Talk about deny ignorance.



Speculation::
I still say Assange was somehow involved with planting this story. I wonder what his 'real' relationship is with these women.

You know what, I don't think the story was true. It first came to light from a tabloid. How do tabloids get their story? The story is sold to them. Who sold it? Well, the name Karin Rosander keeps popping up in the articles I've read. She's apparently one of the spokespeople for the Swedish prosecutor's office. I wouldn't be surprised if she is the one who sold the story in the first place, before the office even investigated into the accusations. Ever since the story got into the media they're probably scrambling down there at the prosecutor's office, trying to figure out how to get control over the information without making anyone look like a liar or firing anyone. That's just my gut feeling on it. No one was ever there to see how it all unfolded, so..

We'll see how it turns out.

So, the rape accusation was a botched CIA operation? Just check the comments here on ATS, reddit, digg or other social news websites. There is a consensus. Assange is viewed as a rebel hero, who stands for free accessible information and truth. His foes tried to frame him and failed miserable.
I believe otherwise - the CIA (or whoever was behind this PR stunt) was quite successful.

People who have previously lost their trust to the MSM have now transferred it now to Assange and Wikileaks.

Of all the million secret documents – what got leaked to Wikileaks?

Documents which report, what is already known to readers who frequent alternative media sources.
Documents which show, that the CIA tries to target Wikileaks (wow, how reckless of the CIA).
Documents which indicate that Osama bin Laden is still alive.
Documents which indicate that Pakistans and Irans involvment make it worse for the noble allied troops (don't be surprised if these countries are the next on the evil doer list).

So far:
Wikileaks has not exposed a major new scandal.
Wikileaks has not compromised a VIP.
His founder Assange has openly dismissed the 9/11 truth movement.

Perhaps I am just a cynic and a bit paranoid, but I believe Wikileaks has been manufactured to become an excellent propaganda tool. A tool, which is designed to disseminate propaganda for people which have become disappointed with the MSM.

there is a saying that makes the point about being hit with flak when your over a target...i think Assange is over a pretty big target.

I'm going to assume you consider yourself a 9/11 truther. That's fine, you're entitled to your own opinions and conspiracy theories. That's what ATS is all about.

However, yes, the guy is a hero. And really? The guy seems to be pissing off a lot of powerful figures in Washington. I wonder why...could it be because he's exposing truth they don't want out? Is there a reason why many Pentagon or military personnel are prohibited from viewing Wikileaks?

Please, educate yourself.

ok just got this in my mail ... John Pilger thursday august 19 Why Wikileaks Must Be Protected A Pentagon document states bluntly that US intelligence intends to “fatally marginalise” Wikileaks. The preferred tactic is smear, with corporate journalists ever ready to play their part.
On 31 July, the American celebrity reporter Christiane Amanapour interviewed Secretary of Defence Robert Gates on the ABC network. She invited Gates to describe to her viewers his “anger” at Wikileaks. She echoed the Pentagon line that “this leak has blood on its hands”, thereby cueing Gates to find Wikileaks “guilty” of “moral culpability”. Such hypocrisy coming from a regime drenched in the blood of the people of Afghanistan and Iraq – as its own files make clear – is apparently not for journalistic enquiry. This is hardly surprising now that a new and fearless form of public accountability, which Wikileaks represents, threatens not only the war-makers but their apologists.

I like Julian Assange’s dust-dry wit. When I asked him if it was more difficult to publish secret information in Britain, he replied, “When we look at Official Secrets Act labelled documents we see that they state it is offence to retain the information and an offence to destroy the information. So the only possible outcome we have is to publish the information.”
All the above is John Pilgers words and are taken from a ZCOM news flash I get .peace
