The key thing here will be if the US gets involved and tries to force its hand. If Assange is detained purely on the basis of this Swedish sexual
assault claim, then assuming that in its self is not a fabrication of some sort, I would not have thought it would do him any good to release the
damaging files he apparantly has.
If however it does turn out that the sexual assault is a fabrication, designed to get him into a position where he could be rendered to the US under
the current prisoner movement laws, then I would have thought he will release the files, even if doing so makes it worse for him. He seems from what I
have heard of him, and seen of him over the years to be quite a determined and single minded person. I hope for his sake, and for the sake of those
his information might negatively effect, that the US stay the hell out of this to be honest. Dont get me wrong, I want to know all I can about whats
really going on out there. I love new data, for it is chewy and delicious, but the cost of releasing files he himself considers damaging would be
astronomical, and staggering in comparison with the pretend damage his previous releases have allegedly done.
