The President of the European Commission gave an intriguing response, when asked about wikileaks. The EU Commission has described the revelations as "freedom of expression" and a procedure that "our democracies" have to live with. Wikileaks, in their eyes, is integral to a free society.
United States lawmakers can forget about Assange arriving on their soil - I doubt the EU or the European Court of Human Rights will let him be extradited.

I have just read on a Germany news site here:
that Sweden has ACCEPTED the bail. So he will be free!!!
But he has to wear an eletronic device that prevents an escape...
Guys are we talking about someone who committed mass murder? I am still thinking that this is some kind of bad joke...edit on 14-12-2010 by mrMasterJoe because: (no reason given)
With Assange being released on bail this tells me it's for 1 of 2 reasons:
1) The US government has thorough reviewed the contents of the 'insurance file' and knows that if this information is released it's game over as the information would have devestating effects.
2) He was released so a hired assassin can get to him and we can read about him dying in an 'accident'.
I tend to believe #1 is the most plausible scenario at this point......

What if they let him post bail so they can have their chance to take him out? I know it sounds crazy but, crazier things have happened. If he was in protective custody in jail, they couldn't do it there.. Too obvious.
I'm merely speaking hypothetically btw. Seems as though he has a growing list of people considering him as a threat. Surely the U.K wouldnt be that stupid to let that happen i would hope. I think they know what the outcome would be as far as the supporters go.
No offense U.K.
