I have not read that, and apparently you have not either. He is fighting extradition to Sweden for claims of Rape, not erxtradition to the US.
The Us has no charges pending against him. What Assange and his legal team are doing are attempting to play off the irritation Europe has towards the
Bush administration. A common legal tactic that is used often, and fails just as often.
Some of his other ridiculaous claims by assnage and his lawyer -
Assange would be executed
Assange has not committed any crimes that the US has filed charges on. Secondly, if the US were to file charges, those charges punishment is prison
time, not death.
Assange would be charged with treason.
Assange is an Austrailian Citizen, not American, and is therefore not able to be charged with Treason.
Assange could be sent to Gitmo
Assange can not be sent to Gitmo since any charges would be in Federal Court, and not a military tribunal.
Assange, his lawyer and his gaggle of asshats, as I and others have stated, is confusing the issues on purpose in order to confuse everyone who is
following this. They are playing the US card in an effort to confuse the elgal systems in Europe.
I hope like hell the EU Court rejects his claim that sending him to Sweden would result in no justice.
For a person who is all about transparency and answering charges, being up front and honest, he sure as hell does not practice what he demands of
Funny really... It makes him no better than those he condemns.
