Irony of the Year?

Assange's lawyers are very unhappy.

Incriminating police files were published in the British newspaper that has used him as its source for hundreds of leaked US embassy cables.

In a move that surprised many of Mr Assange’s closest supporters on Saturday, The Guardian newspaper published previously unseen police documents that accused Mr Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women.

Here's the good part:

Bjorn Hurtig, Mr Assange’s Swedish lawyer, said he would lodge a formal complaint to the authorities and ask them to investigate how such sensitive police material leaked into the public domain.

Heh.

Of course, if Holder's Department of Justice is looking for applicable law, it may take several decades to find one.

You can't imagine that these charges were faked? Innocent until proven guilty, right?

WikiLeaks published documents that had been separated from corroborating material with the sole purpose of undermining the government of the United States of America.

Perhaps this would give the intelligence community an idea of how to go after Assange. Open up our entire intelligence capabilities on him and his group. Publicly release every movement, financial transaction, off hand comment, etc.. Bring every waking second of Every WikiLeaks member into the shining light of day.
